57th Running of the Daytona 500

The 57th running of the Daytona 500 is now in the rear-view mirror and its time to take a look back at the full week of production and innovation in Daytona. Fox Sports was tasked with producing more than 80 hours of programming leading up to the Daytona 500 itself and, with half a dozen main mobile units in the compound and more that 50 cameras and 150 mics strewn across the track, the production was among the largest of the year for Fox. Meanwhile NASCAR Productions stayed plenty busy throughout the week and Daytona International Speedway’s “Daytona Rising” project is also already underway, having broken ground on the $400 million track refurb in early July, 2013 and expected to be completed in time for the 2016 NASCAR season. Here’s a look at the tech toys and iconic moments from this year’s Daytona 500 (Photos courtesy of Dan Daley and Fox Sports):
