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 7:03 PM (all times are DST). I did not keep records for the pre- and post-race coverage.

NBC 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.

This was the last Sprint Cup race of the 2016 season. Please look for my annual wrap-up of the sponsors and their commercials for the 2016 season in the near future.
