Commercial breakdown: 2021 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500

Kyle Larson was playing Atlanta Motor Speedway like a golden fiddle he earned in Georgia on a wild bet… until the closing laps.  Perhaps, today, he has an old sweet song on his mind, and no peace, no peace.  It depends on his view:  was he the dominant force, or the ultimate loser?  I hope he has peace with his accomplishment there on Sunday.  I hope the fans had peace with the broadcast, punctuated with the obligatory commercials.  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.
