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

I began recording the times at the Invocation of the race at 7:20 PM, and stopped at the waving of the checkered flag at 10:31 PM (all times are EDT). I did not keep records for the pre- and post-race coverage.

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 above the running order; as well as various driver statistics.

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