NASCAR racing is a terrific sport. Americans love cars, and a lot of them love fast cars. Throw in a few family members competing against each other on the track, a few villainous drivers who will wreck you for a win, or drivers who have been written off who have something to prove, and you have yourself a few entertaining hours on race day. As we near the Presidential election, a race can be an escape from all of the political bickering and bantering… if not for the political ads that have crept in. For those who like to know precisely how many Biden or Trump ads there were, or how many other commercials there were, here is this week’s breakdown.
