I thought it was nice of TNT to show some of the Pocono race yesterday
during their commercial marathon.

Yes, I have the same complaint on many other TV shows. I understand it, but I don't like it; "Somebody has to pay the bills, somehow".

The difference is that I don't mind it as much with NASCAR races, and other NASCAR-related shows, because I'm a true fan. Besides, they show replays if you miss something important. Plus, sometimes they'll present the commercials on split screen.

My main man finished in third, and my other two favorites were fast (but screwed up, Kyle and Kasey).

That’s why I use my DVR for most TV programs. Sadly, watching after the fact just doesn’t make it for sporting events. As a related matter, I often toggle between – say – golf and a Giants game. It’s surprising how often there’s an ad on both channels at the same time ….

Of the three networks that share the Nascar season, TNT is by far the worst.

Poor, very rough production and I have a hard time listening to Kyle Petty bumble and babble his way through the race.

It was a fun race to watch, I really like that track. Logano did a bang up job of being just aggressive enough to move Martin for the win.

Thank goodness for DVR's. Course you have to wait half way through the race to start watching it but its worth it to miss the mindless Danica commercials.

I love how the only cautions happen during commercial.

They will be in Michigan Sunday and TNT's second broadcast of the season. Maybe this one will be better.
