Commercial breakdown: 2021 Toyota Owners 400

Smack dab in the middle of the 60s, songwriter Bob Lind wrote a song, “Elusive Butterfly.” In it, he likened chasing after love like someone chasing butterflies with a net. He has been quoted as saying that you feel the most alive when you are chasing after something you dearly want. Following Sunday’s Cup race in Richmond, Denny Hamlin must feel very alive, for all the chasing that he did for the victory that eluded him. One thing that did not elude the viewers of the broadcast were the commercials. For those who like to know precisely how many there were, and how much time they took during the broadcast, here is this week’s breakdown.
