Experience Talladega Race Weekend Through Lenses of 100,000 Cameras

Cellphones have become an integral part of sports viewing, as fans both in-person and watching afar chronicle and share their experience across social media. To capture the NASCAR experience from all perspectives, FOX Sports 1 and NASCAR Productions  present the second installment of the cutting-edge documentary series 100,000 CAMERAS, scheduled to premiere Thursday, May 14 (9:30 PM ET) as part of 10 DAYS OF THUNDER on FOX Sports 1.

This time, 100,000 CAMERAS sets its sights on NASCAR’s wildest track -- Talladega Superspeedway -- on Sunday, May 3. 100,000 CAMERAS: TALLADEGA weaves together fan and driver-generated video to tell the story of Talladega from every conceivable angle, regardless of location. The crowd-sourced documentary captures the ‘life in a day of NASCAR’ and how the sport connects people and communities at the track and around the world. The popular original installment of 100,000 CAMERAS on FOX Sports 1 covered the 2014 NASCAR SPRINT ALL-STAR RACE.

Fans everywhere are invited to tell their own Talladega story by using cameras and smart/mobile devices to capture the race, as well as the hours preceding and following it, whether from the grandstands, on a road trip to the track, tailgating, watching from home or from a neighborhood bar.  Using the hashtags #100KCams and #NASCAR, fans simply upload videos to their social media accounts (Instagram, Twitter, Vine, Facebook or Snapchat) during or immediately following the race.
