The new NASCAR season is almost here. So many things will have changed, including which drivers will be driving on certain teams, new rookies on the scene, and long-time drivers who are not racing this season at all. There are totally new racing formats for all three series, and the phrase, ‘Sprint Cup’, is being replaced with ‘Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series’. Like it or hate it, anticipating it or dreading it, the new season and all it will bring is almost here.

Here at CawsnJaws.com, one of our reasons for being is recording the number of commercials that are included in each Cup broadcast. We have been doing this for the fans for ten years! We have enjoyed bringing hard facts to a hot-button issue that are discussed in journalists’ articles and in social media of all kinds. How will the new race format affect the number and placement of the ads? Only time will tell, and that time is almost here.

To ready you, I have compiled the following facts concerning last year’s racing season:

Total number of commercials: 4,463. (That is 3,724 traditional commercials, and 739 side-by-side.) Yes, that is a lot of Coca-Cola, KFC, and Chevy love. But, as we have discovered over the years, those stats usually mean this: three hours of racing to one hour of commercials. Usually around 100 commercials per race. ‘Usually’ can be affected by a whole lot of circumstances; but it is a good barometer of what fans have been experiencing for quite a while.
