The sport that already offers unprecedented fan access is going one step further in 2007, allowing DirecTV viewers to watch an entire NASCAR race from behind the wheel.
NASCAR HotPass will debut on DirecTV (nyse: DTV - news - people ) at the Daytona 500 in February and offer fans at home the opportunity to watch a race from a driver's vantage point. Subscribers will have access to five channels dedicated to individual drivers, who will change every week....
...DirecTV isn't the only medium offering new access next season. Sirius Satellite Radio (nasdaq: SIRI - news - people ) plans to offer 10 driver channels that will combine the overall race broadcast with driver-to-pit crew chatter in 2007.
