Commercial breakdown: 2021 GoodYear 400

On Sunday, the NASCAR Cup Series was at Darlington, a track rich with racing history. The folks at Fox Sports deemed it a ‘throwback race’, to showcase NASCAR roots, and to have a bit of fun. Smokey Robinson did a rendition of the National Anthem that was the bee’s knees, the announcers wore fab leisure suits, and the cars’ paint schemes were dreamy. For those who watched the broadcast that might like to throwback some of the commercials, here is this week’s breakdown.
