For those of you NASCAR fans that like stats and love to hate commercials, here is the breakdown for Saturday’s and Sunday’s race (postpone and delays due to weather).

I began recording the times at the Invocation of the race at 7:55 PM on Saturday, then stopped at 8:09 PM due to rain. I restarted at 8:55 PM, then stopped at 9:17 PM; restarted again at 10:42 PM, then stopped completely on Saturday at 10:52 PM. On Sunday, I began recording times at 4:30 PM, then stopped at 7:16 PM for more rain; then restarted again at 7:24 PM. Finally, I stopped at the waving of the checkered flag at 7:38 PM (all times are EDT). I did not keep records for the pre- and post-race coverage, or any red flag coverage.

NBCSN and CNBC were the broadcast teams 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.
