Who did the cameras focus on in 2007? cawsnjaws.com started to keep records of how many commercials there are during Cup races and how much time they take of every broadcast was in response to many fans’ unhappiness with those numbers. Soon after I started posting the numbers and even have them archived on their own page, Commericals 2007. Also kept track of how much camera time different drivers receive during races. Some results:
Car No. / Driver / Focus Total (top 5/bottom 5) full time drivers:
(24) Jeff Gordon – 928
(48) Jimmie Johnson – 906
(8) Dale Earnhardt Jr. – 763
(20) Tony Stewart – 604
(17) Matt Kenseth – 579

(44) Dale Jarrett – 54
(36) Jeremy Mayfield – 42
(84) A.J. Allmendinger – 36
(00) David Reutimann – 33
(4) Ward Burton– 32
Crew Chiefs:
(48) Chad Knaus – 57
(24) Steve Letarte – 44
(20) Greg Zipadelli – 23
(8) Tony Eury Jr. – 12
(5) Alan Gustafson – 9

80% of that was ESPN on ABC you know. I swear to god it was like watching the Jeff and Jimmie show every race ESPN on ABC had.

I see little change in the upcoming season. Those 3 will still have the most "looks". Maybe not in the same order though. Jr is going to be hot, hot, hot.

More reason I like NASCAR on TNT Live. They focus on everybody, via "Through the Field."

I complain a lot about ESPN, but there are also some disadvantages to FOX (nowhere on the level on ESPN). They have a tendency to focus on certain drivers, but it was nowhere near the level of what ESPN on ABC accomplished.
