For those of you NASCAR fans that like stats and love to hate commercials, here is the breakdown for Sunday’s race.

I began recording the times at the Invocation of the race at 3:00 PM, and stopped at the waving of the checkered flag at 6:47 PM (all times are EDT). I did not keep records for the pre- and post-race coverage.

Please note that during this broadcast, there was a power outage in my area. While it was only momentary, it took my cable box a few minutes to power back up. Therefore, there is 5 minutes missing from this report (during which time I believe I missed at least one side-by-side commercial).

NBCSN was the broadcast team for this event.

Please note that in addition to the commercials and promos listed below there is always a sponsor’s logo that changes throughout the race near the race ticker.

Throughout the breakdown, you can find links to sponsors, or special items-of-interest such as links to contests and movie sites.
