I'm not watching the Las Vegas Sprint cup today. After we hit lap 147 and they took another break, I started my stopwatch nd discovered that the race is viewed for an average of 1m:40s and the ads are 2:30 or more. I'm South African, we get ESPN, I must say this is why I'm more F1 than I am NASCAR. But I still love NASCAR, I would love it the same way as F1 if they didn't have these dumb commercials all the time

I think it's getting worse. Commercials every 3-4 laps during Las Vegas! Brutal.


I'm just glad Formula 1 doesn't air on ESPN or this Fox crap in South Africa. But NASCAR is on ESPN for us, and jeeez I can't take it anymore. We can't go 2 minutes without another commercial that takes 3 minutes

The commercials are the only thing keeping viewers awake.

It's a miracle you're not in the hospital with alcohol poisoning just from the DW's fetish w/Danica... Between DW's fetish w/Danica and his man crush on Kyle Busch I'm about ready to turn off my TV. At least Kyle can race.

I thought that after Daytona Fox would back off with the amount of commercials, but now Bristol comes along...same old crap!! Commercials every three or four minutes!! Then they bombard you with bits of commercials during the coverage...way to go Fox...

Watched part of Daytona on TV turned off 1/2 way because of too many commercials. Drove to Bristol last minute because I wanted to watch racing. Now just woke up with 60 to go in California and got sick of too damn many comercials again. Boo cant you do better Nascar. Iam probably the sports biggest fan but am looking for something else to do with my time. You already killed the local racing with all your frikin night races...so I guess I will have to take up boating or something.

I have had to start recording the races this year and fast forwarding through the commercials. I don't like doing it, but can't see wasting 5 hours when I can watch a race in less than 2 and skip all the BS.

All the networks have been overboard with commercials for years now no matter how much we fans complain. Unfortunately they are the same as the rest of sports. Way too high TV rights fees force them into too many comms. TV time outs, announcers now slipping in short ads while describing the play.

Only way I watch the races now is to record them and watch them the next day. Even that's annoying but at least you whiz by the comms.

The leftards control 95% of the media (you can tell because they are obsessed with turning little kids into homosexuals and addicts while sucking as much money away from working Americans as humanly possible to give to government union employees and illegal aliens). So ask them to reduce the money going into their pockets. *Laugh* Like a leftard would ever do that.

The amount of advertising is obscene throughout NASCAR in general. Obviously the cars are covered in ads, which is standard in all motorsports, but, unlike serious motorsports, this isn't enough for NASCAR. The drivers plug sponsors whenever they get a chance, and ads are inserted into broadcasts anywhere that they can think of slapping one. The crawl along the top of the screen, listing driver positions, gets substituted with a string of sponsor ads periodically, and any programming segment, no matter how trivial, is sponsored by Tampax or Vagicil or whoever. I'm waiting for the day that the children of drivers are named after Mountain Dew or DuPont. It's no surprise that so much of air time is a commercial break.

I love when some of the coca cola drivers attempt to take a drink of their coke when the camera hits them for an interview and the cap is still on lol. Jamie McMurray is notorious for doing this

FOX is taking all of the enjoyment out of watching NASCAR. 4 minutes of racing followed by 3 minutes of commercials. FOX sucks!!!

I and many others stopped watching fox and the other news channels because of the excessive commericals. Sad we pay for our cable and still get barbarded with commercials. Guess what is going next? Why won't these people change their ways on this, apparently they don't care, so by by Fox.
