NBC Sports Deploys Ford Edge ST Pursuit Vehicle for NASCAR Championship Weekend
As part of NBC’s coverage of NASCAR Championship Weekend in Miami last weekend, the NASCAR on NBC production crew worked with Pursuit Systems to use the company’s Ford Edge ST pursuit vehicle (camera car and crane) to capture unique angles of the Xfinity Series and Monster Energy Cup Series Championship races on Saturday and Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The camera car and crane were used on track as the Championship Four drivers (Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano, and Martin Truex Jr.) and other competitors drove around the speedway prior to green-flag racing and during pace laps. Below are images of the gear.
NBC Sports was all over the grand finale with more than 20 hours of trackside coverage during the weekend, which saw Joey Logano crowned this year’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Champion. CLICK HERE for SVG’s full coverage of the production.
