For those of you NASCAR fans that like stats and love to hate commercials, here is the breakdown for Sunday’s race.

I began recording the times at the Invocation of the race at 3:00 PM, and stopped at the waving of the checkered flag at 6:47 PM (all times are EDT). I did not keep records for the pre- and post-race coverage.

Please note that during this broadcast, there was a power outage in my area. While it was only momentary, it took my cable box a few minutes to power back up. Therefore, there is 5 minutes missing from this report (during which time I believe I missed at least one side-by-side commercial).

NBCSN was the broadcast team for this event.

Please note that in addition to the commercials and promos listed below there is always a sponsor’s logo that changes throughout the race near the race ticker.

Throughout the breakdown, you can find links to sponsors, or special items-of-interest such as links to contests and movie sites.

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 New Hampshire 301 edition

Date: 7-17-16

Racetrack: New Hampshire Motor Speedway

Pole Sitter: Jimmie Johnson

HEARTRACERS:

  • Matt Kenseth: Matt won the race and proved the Gibbs dominance at this track lately. He was happy to win over teammate Kyle Busch to get all the credit.
  • Joey Logano: Joey got another top-five finish and is well seated in the Chase. He will be ready for elimination rounds to have better luck at advancing.
  • Kevin Harvick: Kevin finished fourth in the race. That was very important for his points lead. With his challengers having problems Kevin made ground in the points.
  • Jamie McMurray: Jamie almost got a top-five while going for a Chase spot. He needed a win and came pretty close this week. He might be able to break through like Tony Stewart did with a win.
  • Kyle Busch: Kyle led 133 laps today inside the top-ten. This was a good run for Kyle but he missed out on a weekend sweep.
  • The Love Birds (Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr.): Danica and Ricky got good finishes inside the top-fifteen. The both ran well and these were two of their best finishes.

Date: 7-9-16

Racetrack: Kentucky Speedway

Pole Sitter: Kevin Harvick

HEARTRACERS:

  • Brad Keselowski: Brad led a bunch of laps on route to the win. He didn’t lead the most laps but he got out front at the end.

  • Greg Biffle: Greg got a top-ten and is getting better finishes for Roush Racing at times. The team still hasn’t gotten back to top form in several years.
  • Martin Truex Jr.: Martin has had bad races at times compared to earlier this year. He got a solid top-ten finish to stay well in the Chase.
  • Danica Patrick: Danica had one of her better runs this year in the top-twenty. She survived all the big wrecks and got a decent finish.
  • Jeffery Earnhardt: Jeffery had one of his best runs this year cracking the top thirty. He also was less than ten laps down. Earlier this year the team was finishing races more than ten laps down. It is a team improvement on pace.

JAW’s ‘HEARTRACERS / HEARTBREAKERS’
– 2016 FireKeepers Casino 400 edition

Date: 6-12-16

Racetrack: Michigan International Speedway

Pole Sitter: Joey Logano

HEARTRACERS:

  • Joey Logano: Joey and his fans were still looking for a points win since the Chase last year. Joey and his fans have been frustrated since the Chase went wrong for him last season. In this race he won from pole after leading the most laps. He and his fans will now have great satisfaction with this win. Joey is now in the Chase.
  • Chase Elliott: Chase got the closest to a win yet in his rookie year. He was second after leading some laps. If he wins he will be way ahead of where Jeff Gordon was in his rookie year. It is of note that Chase has yet to tear up ten cars like Jeff Gordon did in his rookie season.
  • Kyle Larson: Kyle had another great race in a row this week in third. He is turning his season around to where he could possibly make the Chase.
  • Carl Edwards: Carl has two wins towards the Chase and is locked in. He was running better earlier in the year when he got is two wins. He and Gibbs Racing have trailed off a bit on pace since then. He did get a solid finish in this race.
  • Jamie McMurray: Jamie was around the top-ten where he usually sits. He hasn’t been much worse this season but he also hasn’t spiked in races like his teammate Kyle Larson. His consistency and non-crashes have kept him in the Chase and Larson out.
  • Chris Buescher: Chris is driving for a once back-marking team for Bob Jenkins. Now they get finishes around the top-twenty quite often. They have gone far. He finished in 20th place.
