We can't quite claim to be NASCAR nuts, but we do know that the hip cool thing to do at the track on race day is to tune into radio communications between drivers and their crews. Well Sprint Nextel is taking that to the next level with their NASCAR NEXTEL FanView, a handheld device that can tune into video, audio, and data being broadcast over 2.5Ghz at the track, including in-car cameras and official timing and scores. The, erm, distinctive looking device can be rented for $50 a day or $70 for the weekend, and should be available during the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series which start February 19th.
