The Daytona 500 is comfortably one of the best and most highly anticipated events of the NASCAR calendar, with people who can't make it to the races in person gathering in front of their TV sets.

Now however, the Daytona 500 viewing experience is being escalated to a completely different level thanks to virtual reality streams that are going to be made available courtesy Fox Sports and NextVR. If you're in possession of your own GearVR headset and own a compatible smartphone, you will be able to enjoy a virtual reality broadcast that lets you witness the race from the stands, from the starting line, from the infield and even from the pit lane.

Virtual reality broadcasts have long been thought to have a lot of potential in the sports field, and the virtually streamed Daytona 500 is set to solidify this idea.
