The final weekday of Speedweeks is a day full of meetings after our first evening of racing with the Can-Am Duel at Daytona.
The expectation is for a long line of cars in an unstable parade with the exception of Ricky Stenhouse and Kevin Harvick, two drivers with fast Fords who seem perfectly willing to break from the parade and actually race.
How could you not enjoy watching as Darrell Wallace Jr. pushed his best friend Ryan Blaney to a thrilling victory? Not only did Blaney and Wallace show the way in the opening Duel, but 22-year old Chase Elliott won the second race and 21-year old Erik Jones finished third. Johnson is hoping that he can remount that springboard Sunday with another Daytona 500 checkered flag and eventually collect what would be a record-breaking eighth Cup Series title. The drone, which will be tethered to allow longer periods of flight time, will move around behind the backstretch - outside of the racing area - to cover the race from a new angle. I think he will get another opportunity. So he'll watch from afar as Paul Menard drives the Wood Brothers Racing entry in the Daytona 500. Each auto will be outfitted with three cameras for three viewing angles. And drivers have already got a feel for the track and shown their speed through practice, qualifying and pre-races.
In total, Fox Sports will deploy a total of 20 manned cameras, including three Sony HDC-4300's operating in 6X super-slo-mo, one Sony HDC-4800 operating in 16X HD slo-mo, and an Inertia Unlimited X-Mo capturing 1,000 frames per second.
The Duels might not have meant anything, with restrictor plates making it easy to jump from 35th to the lead on Sunday in just a few laps.
Tethered along the backstretch of the speedway, the drone will deliver live coverage as it hovers and moves around outside the racing area to deliver new angles on the race. "It's probably the most stress on a relationship, with a team". That number is 12 less than the 52 cars that made a run for it just three years ago. Instead, Game Creek's Cleatus (known by another network as PeacockOne) will be responsible for the main race broadcast and will be joined in the compound by 11 additional units for digital production, editing, RF cameras and audio (BSI), telemetry and graphics (SMT), and studio production. Broadcast Center in Los Angeles. "But what else am I going to do?" "It's exciting, it's scalable, and we're looking forward to doing it. AT&T put in circuit at every track or is in the process of doing so, so this is a first foray into IP transmission as it relates to NASCAR". Joey and I said we both would have wrecked if I went up any higher at the end.
"That's something that's soaking in over time, what we've been able to do". Virtual leaderboards, sponsor enhancements and race summaries displayed on virtual billboards in Turn 3 will be created with a combination of camera-tracking technology from Stype and Vizrt 3D graphics.
- Well, it's nice to get the, you know, the year started off well. We didn't get to race.
The network has also enhanced its 3D-cutaway vehicle, putting these graphics in the hands of the broadcast team.
In 2000, the inevitable happened: the Truex boys went head-to-head in a low-level NASCAR race. We're on the limit for sure and it's brought a lot of new excitement driving these cars.
