Commercial breakdown: 2020 Go Bowling 235 at the Daytona Road Course


NASCAR fans are used to ‘going bowling’ at the Glen. Due to this wacky year, we ‘went bowling’ much further south, at Daytona International Speedway. What’s more, we didn’t ‘bowl’ on the regular track, but the road course! There was rain in the forecast, but the only delay we had was for lightning. These days, I often say, "Everything is so weird!" It is! The only expected thing was the appearance of commercials during the broadcast. 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.
