On Sunday, many in the racing world felt the New Hampshire race would be another hard-fought battle between Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick. Many in the weather-forecasting world thought the race would be deluged with rain. Neither thing happened (with the exception of a rain delay of just a few minutes). One thing you can count on happening no matter what are commercials during the race. 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.
