On Sunday, the weather cooperated; an inspirational Invocation was given by Darrell and Stevie Waltrip; an MLB Hall-of-Fame Contender, Joey Votto, gave the call to start the engines; and a rookie, Cole Custer, won the race. While there were unexpected things, there were things that you can’t get away from, like 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.
