NASCAR® and Digital Ally®, Inc., a company with the mission to provide law enforcement agencies, emergency management, and commercial companies with the highest quality video solutions and software management, announced today a multi-year official partnership, naming Digital Ally "A Preferred Technology Provider of NASCAR."
As part of the new relationship, Digital Ally will provide cameras that will be mounted in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series garage throughout the season, bolstering both NASCAR’s commitment to safety at every race track, as well as enhancing its officiating process through technology.
Following a successful first season of stage racing, NASCAR® today announced a new fantasy game inspired by the competition format that has created closer, side-by-side racing and even more dramatic moments throughout races.
Accessible via NASCAR.com and the NASCAR Mobile app, the all-new NASCAR Fantasy Live follows the NASCAR official scoring system, allows players to make in-race driver substitutions and features incentives for correctly predicting stage wins, race wins and more.
Once upon a time, Joey Logano was the biggest thing since sliced bread. “Sliced Bread” was an early nickname, a reference to the talent he showed at an early age. A double-edged knife did the slicing. Part of the nickname was tribute; part was sarcasm.
I hear he’s the biggest thing since sliced bread.
This year the bread is available in a variety of forms: English muffins, bagels, croissants. Many older drivers have moved on.
The NASCAR star power lost in the past few years is imposing.
This season victory lanes are going to be populated by some young men we shall get to know better. We’d better get to know them better, or else the decline in interest, ratings and attendance is going to get worse.
Jeff Gordon. Dale Earnhardt Jr. Tony Stewart. Carl Edwards. Matt Kenseth. Greg Biffle. Danica Patrick. NASCAR looks like a college football team whose underclassmen all decided to declare for the draft.
All had fan bases now looking for someone else to inspire them. Some aren’t looking very hard.
Five NASCAR icons – two drivers, a crew chief/owner, an engine builder/owner and a broadcaster – were enshrined into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, North Carolina, tonight during the Induction Ceremony held in the Crown Ball Room at the Charlotte Convention Center.
Red Byron, Ray Evernham, Ron Hornaday Jr., Ken Squier and Robert Yates make up the ninth class of The NASCAR Hall of Fame, which now holds 45 inductees.
Let me tell you what I love about NASCAR that I didn’t 25 years ago.
In the 1990s, writing about races at Talladega Superspeedway used to scare me. A writer hates dealing with tragedy more than anything else. The job is distasteful, but it has to be done. He sees track workers covering the wreck with tarpaulin and carting it off. He knows the signs that something is terribly wrong. He prays his instincts are wrong, but he knows they aren’t. That’s the way it was the day Dale Earnhardt died on the final lap of the Daytona 500.
This is a time to accentuate the positive. NASCAR will have plenty of time to disappoint us later.
Chevrolet is running a Camaro. It won’t look as much like a Camaro as the one Tiny Lund drove in the Grand American Division in 1971, but it’s going to be better than the winged Car of Tomorrow (hah!).
We’ll go by our eyes and ears, of course. When the COT was unveiled, NASCAR propaganda ministers passed out press kits and, while the media was squatting down, scratching heads, rubbing eyes, and wondering if hallucinogens had been blended into our sweet teas, informed us – with straight faces! – that the different makes were vastly different.
