Commercial breakdown: 2021 Verizon 200 at the Brickyard

The weather was no barrier for the racing warriors on the road course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday. Some drivers showed no restraint through the tight turns; others reined in their wild side and avoided rough ledges. The words in bold are all synonyms for ‘curb’. If you watched the race, then you know how one curb caused a bit of chaos. You also noted there were commercials that restrained some of the broadcast as well. 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.
