This year, the channel will expand the use of five Ultra Hi Motion cameras to enhance views and replays, with the cameras now capable of shots around the entire 2.5-mile track as well as all of pit road. In addition, fans can use a second screen experience through a choice of live streaming video from the onboard cameras on ESPN3 through WatchESPN, on Indycar.com and the Verizon INDYCAR 15 app. Allen Bestwick calls the race with analysts Scott Goodyear and Eddie Cheever.
