Commercial breakdown: 2021 Bluegreen Vacations Duels at Daytona


There are certain race tracks where weather may be an issue. Before a fan complains about those rain-friendly tracks, however, they know that the entity know as NASCAR can cause rain to fall in places like California, where songs have been sung about the beautiful, dry weather, or deserts, where tumbleweeds and cacti endure scorching sunshine. It was no surprise, then, when the Duel races were interrupted by rain on Thursday. They were also interrupted by commercials, but fans have learned to endure these as well. Here is an outline of how many there were, and how much time they took out of the broadcast.
