Commercial breakdown: 2021 Foxwoods Resort Casino 301

It was not a dark and stormy night in Loudon, NH, for those NASCAR fans attending the Cup race on Sunday. It did rain (enough to cause an hour and a half delay); but it wasn’t truly a storm; and it was definitely not at night, as the powers-that-be sliced a few laps off of the race before the sun completely disappeared. For the fans watching at home, the rain interrupted, and so did the commercials. For those who would like to know precisely how many there were, and how much time they took during the broadcast, here is this week’s breakdown.
