In the land of twitter, controversial subjects are often battled over, and controversial people are shown allegiance or belittled. In the land of Talladega Super Speedway, you can find the same sort of wars, and the same sort of famous figures that are adored or loathed. It seems to make sense, then, that following Sunday’s YellaWood 500 Cup race, that twitter resembled a battlefield full of words lobbed this way and that, all to do with the race held that afternoon. Commercials are loathed and loved, too. For those who like to know precisely how many there were this week, and how much time they took during the broadcast, here is the breakdown.
