NASCAR debuts Live VR, 360 video for Homestead

For the first time, NASCAR fans on smartphones and tablets will have access to live, 360-degree views of pre-race events at Homestead-Miami Speedway before Sunday's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Championship finale.

Leading up to the Ford EcoBoost 400 on Nov. 19, fans will be able to "teleport" themselves into the driver's meeting and throughout the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series garage via NASCAR.com and the NASCAR Mobile app, regardless of their location.

The live video, delivered by Ultracast, can also be viewed through smartphone, VR headsets and laptops. This innovative technology platform transforms the device into a launchpad, propelling viewers into fully immersive, 360-degree or virtual reality live experiences.

When engaged with the 360-degree view, fans can choose where they look as live events happen to personalize their experience. As the individual's phone, tablet or headset moves, so does the live camera angle.

In addition to Sunday's driver's meeting, much of the at-track content available via NASCAR's GarageCam will be presented in live VR, 360 video during Ford Championship Weekend.
