NASCAR

Microsoft made headlines earlier this season with the NFL exclusively using the Surface to help manage players and for strategy planning. Now it looks like the world's most famous racing circuit in the US is jumping on board too.

Today, Microsoft, and NASCAR are sharing their new partnership, specifically using Windows to power a new racecar inspection process. Previously, NASCAR relied on the old pencil and paper method for checklists, but now the group is outfitted with a Surfaces and some customized Windows software to help automate the tasks.

On the heels of Microsoft updating Bing Weather for Windows Phone 8, Bing Sports is getting into the action with an update as well.

Bing Sports moved to version 2.0.2.177 and while there's not an official change log posted, it appears the update adds a few new sports categories. You've got your customary professional sports listed (NFL, NBA, NFL, etc) along with collegiate sports, the PGA, and MLS but now NASCAR is showing up on the list.

Great news if you’re into the whole NASCAR racing sport as today, the official app to keep track of the race series is available to all Windows Phone 8 devices.

That’s the good news as the app is well designed and offers up race results, scheduling information and video clips. The bad news is if you want all the cool stuff, by which we mean access to the Live Race Center, you’ll need to be a Sprint customer.

NASCAR Live making the turn on the Marketplace

If you follow NASCAR, check out NASCAR Live over in the Windows Phone Marketplace. The lays out everything NASCAR rather nicely on your Windows Phone with pages for News, Races, Rankings, Videos, and a page with links to NASCAR, Driver and Truck (team) Tweets.

Additional features for NASCAR Live include:

  • Live race details for both NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide tours
  • Ability to create a secondary tile for any race
  • Detail list of upcoming races
  • Detailed driver information.

Completed races will display the final positions for the drivers. The only thing I can think is missing is a map of each track that NASCAR races on and maybe live broadcasts (that may be asking for too much though). Otherwise, NASCAR Live is a fairly comprehensive application for your Windows Phone.

NASCAR Live is a free, ad-supported app that you can find here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.
