If you’re a race fan, you are missing out if you don’t have NASCAR HotPass from Direct TV. This exclusive package, loaded with amazing features, offers a viewing experience that’s second to only attending at the race in person. Check out some of the ways that NASCAR HotPass can change how you enjoy race day:

Dedicated driver channels

If you enjoy getting an inside look at the nuts and bolts of the sport of racing, you’ll love the four dedicated driver channels on NASCAR HotPass. Each channel shows you both the network broadcast of the race and the race from the driver’s vantage point, giving you two perspectives from which to soak in all the high-octane action. You’ll also get access to exclusive audio from the driver’s team radio.

HD broadcasts

The allure of NASCAR lies in the sensory carnival that takes place at each and every race – the roaring engines, the lightning-fast cars and the outrageous crashes. When you watch a race on television, you often lose some of those incredible sights and sounds that make racing such a spectacle.

Fortunately, NASCAR HotPass brings you all 36 Sprint Cup races in crisp high definition. This way, you can experience every turn, lap and checkered flag of the Sprint Cup Series in the best viewing quality available.

Watch on your iPad®

With a home-based Wi-Fi connection, you can stream SPEED, TNT and a number of other networks live on your iPad.® This is a pretty handy feature for technologically savvy fans that enjoy the freedom and mobility of watching NASCAR on their tablet.

ScoreGuide and GameSearch

With just the push of a button, ScoreGuide brings you the results of NASCAR races and more of your favorite sporting events without interrupting what you’re watching. GameSearch, another nifty feature, will automatically locate any blacked-out race or sporting event on an alternate channel – when available, of course.
