How would you like to watch this years Daytona 500 from the perspective of the pit crew? Now, it's possible. Fox Sports has entered into a deal with NextVR, and are planning on broadcasting a series of sports events in a virtual reality setting. The first being this Sunday's Daytona 500.

You can watch from the stands, the starting line, the middle of the infield, and even in the pit. The VR stream will also have dedicated audio and pop up graphics telling you who's where on the track at all times.
Of course, if you just want to watch the old fashion way, you can catch the race this Sunday on FOX, starting at noon with the pre-race show, followed by the actual race at 1pm.
