FOX launches Daytona drones

FOX Sports paved its road for the upcoming Daytona 500, mapping out production details for its coverage of Sunday’s race, which will run at 2:30p on FOX. This year will see the addition of aerial drone coverage as well as a record number of in-car cameras for the event with 14 in the cards. In addition, Visor Cam, a small camera clipped to the helmet of a selected driver, will return, with Kurt Busch and Daniel Suarez donning Visor Cams for Sunday’s race. Other production enhancements include an improved 3D-cutaway car, camera-tracking technologies to provide FOX Sports the ability to place 3D-graphics in the real environment by combining with VIZRT for the graphic rendering, and FOX’s Gopher Cam.

Meanwhile, FOX Sports is lining up a sequel for its “Driver’s Only” race telecast, which this year will take place live on FOX on April 28 from Talladega Superspeedway. Drivers will include Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer, Joey Logano, Ryan Blaney, Erik Jones, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. as well as newcomers Brad Keselowski and Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. Harvick again has the call alongside analysts Bowyer and Logano.
