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 Moment-of-Silence for Robert Yates and Las Vegas victims before the start of the race at 12:44 PM, and stopped at the waving of the checkered flag at 4:41 PM (all times are EDT). 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.
