Watch the 2014 Daytona 500 with NASCAR app for Windows and Windows Phone 8

The Daytona 500 is less than 24 hour away. It’s regarded as the most important and prestigious race on the NASCAR calendar. Think of it as the "Super Bowl of Stock Car Racing." If you’re a die-hard racing fan with a Windows Phone 8 device, then make sure you have the latest update for the NASCAR mobile app.

Here are the new features to follow the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) season:

  • All Premium Live Features for NSCS races available for all app users
  • Updated 2014 Race Schedule
  • Updated 2014 Standings and Driver pages
  • Updated access to NASCAR Nationwide Series and Camping World Truck Series sites
  • Updated Live Tiles and Driver Tiles
  • Updated Lock Screen images

If you’re a Sprint customer, you get a lot more perks. You get free access to all the live race day features including live race radio, live in-car audio, live RaceBuddy for select races and real-time driver telemetry data.  In-race highlights are also exclusively to Sprint customers.

If you’re not on Sprint, you can pay for the NASCAR MOBILE Premium Subscription. For $24.99, you get live access to all 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race events.

Our favorite feature in the NASCAR mobile app is the videos section. You get access to the highlights, final laps, race rewinds, and more. You don’t need a subscription to watch these videos.

The NASCAR mobile app is a free download at the Windows Phone Store. If you can’t be in front of the television during the races, then you can watch or listen with your phone. Have a Windows 8 tablet? NASCAR also has an app at the Windows Store, which was also updated for the 2014 season.
