NASCAR two-timed on its fans over the weekend, and it was not something for the tabloids. As part of an exciting double-header, the Cup warriors raced at Pocono Raceway both Saturday and Sunday. The rain held off both days, and for the fans attending, and watching it at home, it was a great time. Of course, the folks at home had to watch the commercials, too. 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.
