FOX Sports Virtual Studio 1

FOX Sports Unveils Its Most Advanced Studio for 2019 NASCAR Season

Major Investment in State-of-the-Art Charlotte Studio Sets Standard for Video and Graphic Capabilities
Fortnite Creator’s Unreal Engine Technology Powers Graphics

CHARLOTTE – Today, FOX Sports announces a major investment in its Charlotte studio capabilities, outfitting its facility with a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose virtual studio set. The ultra-customizable 60’ x 60’ facility allows for instant 3D analysis of racetracks, cars, race shops and more, with the ability to create unique and changeable spaces within the high-tech studio environment in a matter of hours.

The new set debuts in February 2019 as home to NASCAR Race Hub, the most-watched NASCAR news and information program, NASCAR RaceDay and other NASCAR programming.

“Innovation and ‘what’s next’ thinking have defined the FOX Sports approach from Day 1,” said Mark Silverman, President, National Networks, FOX Sports. “Working with industry leaders and integrating cutting-edge technology has produced one of the most advanced studios in sports. We are extremely excited to show it off early next year as we get viewers ready for the 2019 Daytona 500 on FOX.”

For an early look at FOX Sports virtual studio capabilities:

Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, the technology behind the mega-popular online video game Fortnite, powers graphic elements for the new studio. Unreal Engine is a complete suite of tools that empowers creators to bring real-time, high-fidelity experiences to PC, console, mobile, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) platforms.

“Unreal Engine gives new meaning to photorealism for real-time renderers,” said Zac Fields, FOX Sports SVP Graphic Tech and Integration. “Being able to blend AR and 3D graphics better than ever before offers us the ability to deliver a seamless transition from the virtual set into the 3D world.”
Production technology elements for the virtual set:

  • Graphic elements powered by Epic Games’ Unreal Engine technology
  • The use of set dynamics to tell stories, as the set can transform into remote locations, bringing the location to the FOX Sports studio instead of taking the studio to the location
  • 5 Stype Red Spy encoded cameras, including 1 Steadicam and 1 jib
  • Zero Density studio software, including the most advanced keying features possible on a virtual set. The keying will make use of a 50’ x 47’ green screen area, while maintaining the ability to shoot 360 degrees
  • 3D tracking technology from Blacktrax used to automatically trigger events on the set; whether it’s automated lighting following an analyst on set or augmented reality (AR) being activated by an analyst, this technology opens the door for unique storytelling opportunities
  • Real-time AR using a combination of set elements and 3D graphics (i.e., raising a race car up through the floor or changing the content that texturizes the set)
  • FOX Sports integrating its own custom production workflows, allowing for content to be populated/changed within the virtual set instantaneously

Geico 500

Talladega Trucks Elimination Race Live on FOX Broadcast; 2014 Cup Champ Harvick in the Booth

2004 Cup Champion Kurt Busch up Next Oct. 26 at Martinsville on FS1
Harvick on Talladega Strategy: ‘You have to race aggressively to score as many stage points as possible. If you don’t score them, somebody else will, and that’s dangerous’

With only five NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES races remaining in the 2018 season, teams head to Talladega Superspeedway this weekend for the most-anticipated race of the Playoffs. Saturday’s stop, live on FOX at 1:00 PM ET, serves as an elimination race, narrowing the field of championship contenders from eight to six to conclude the first round of the postseason.

Former MONSTER ENERGY NASCAR CUP SERIES champion Kevin Harvick returns to the FOX Sports booth Saturday as a race analyst, calling the action alongside Vince Welch and Michael Waltrip. Talladega marks Harvick’s third Truck Series race in the FOX Sports booth this season, in addition to the five NASCAR XFINITY SERIES races he called. Fellow former champion Kurt Busch is on deck for the Oct. 27 Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway (live on FS1 at 1:00 PM ET), his maiden voyage as a race analyst.

Patrolling pit road on Saturday are Phil Parsons, Hermie Sadler and Kaitlyn Vincie. Pre-race coverage begins at 12:30 PM ET on FOX with NASCAR RACEDAY-NCWTS, hosted by John Roberts with analysis from two-time series champ Todd Bodine and Jeff Hammond. Weekend coverage begins Friday, Oct. 12, live on FS2 with opening practice.

NASCAR RACEDAY-NCWTS offers an intimate look at defending series champion Johnny Sauter’s home life. Todd Bodine and FOX Sports cameras followed Sauter home to Wisconsin recently during the long break in the racing schedule, going behind-the-scenes with him and his family. Additionally, FOX NASCAR reporter and animal rescue ambassador Jamie Little joins David and Todd Gilliland for a Birmingham Humane Society shelter event, adding to the number of shelter visits she makes on the NASCAR circuit in conjunction with Pedigree each year.

Already locked into the second round of the Playoffs by virtue of their wins at Canada and Las Vegas, respectively, are Justin Haley and Grant Enfinger. Sauter sits atop the point standings headed into Talladega, 17 points ahead of Noah Gragson.

Below are quotes from FOX NASCAR analysts Harvick and Parsons headed into the final restrictor-plate race of the year:

With Talladega serving as a Playoff elimination race, how would you describe the pressure on drivers hoping to advance, particularly the younger ones?
“I think it depends on where you are from a point position standpoint in the round from the cutoff line. No matter what your agenda is, there’s a lot of pressure because there’s so many things out of your control.”
–Kevin Harvick

“I cannot even begin to imagine the stress and lack of sleep these guys are going through. Even Johnny Sauter, who has a big points lead, probably won’t rest easy until he gets through the first stage or grabs some stage points. I can’t fathom what is going through their minds.”
–Phil Parsons

On his advice at Talladega for drivers still not locked into the second round of the Playoffs:
“I think the way our points system is set up, you have to race aggressively to score as many stage points as possible. If you don’t score them, somebody else will, and that’s dangerous.”
–Kevin Harvick

On whether who makes the elimination cut and who doesn’t will go down to the finish line:
“We literally won’t know who advances to the second round of the Playoffs until they get to the start/finish line. We saw that last year with the big wreck in turns 1 and 2.”
–Phil Parsons

On the odds of another first-time winner emerging at Talladega:
“I’d say better than average. Historically, we’ve seen people get their first win there – Parker Kligerman and Grant Enfinger immediately come to mind of those in the field. If I had to predict, I’d look at a Gilliland running for Kyle Busch Motorsports, although I won’t say which one (Todd or David). They obviously can work together, which I would think is the plan, so they should be in position. And at GMS Racing, maybe Spencer Gallagher. He has proven he can win there. He finished second last year and won the XFINITY race in the spring.”
–Phil Parsons (who scored his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win at Talladega in 1988)

On who is under the most pressure at Talladega:
“Sometimes the guys below the cut line have less pressure on them than the guys above the cut line. Matt Crafton, a two-time champ who has made the Playoffs the last two years, probably is feeling a lot of pressure to make it.”
–Phil Parsons

LOS ANGELES – Today, FOX Sports announced the premiere of FAIR GAME WITH KRISTINE LEAHY on Monday, Oct. 22 (5:30 PM ET) on FS1.

“I’m thrilled to be working with IMG to produce a show I hope will resonate with audiences looking for authenticity,” said Leahy. “Our show aims to bring out the personal side of athletes, entertainers, and others close to the sports world. I am so excited to share this project we’ve been working on for the last several months with viewers.”

The show is produced by IMG Original Content for FOX Sports. “Kristine is an engaging intuitive, interviewer with a unique ability to create dynamic dialogue no matter the setting,” said Mike Antinoro, senior vice president of IMG Original Content. “This format will offer Kristine’s audience a new perspective on her guests through insightful and entertaining conversations.”

IMG Original Content recently teamed with HBO Sports to produce the critically acclaimed “Being Serena,” a five-part docu-series on tennis superstar Serena Williams. It also produces daily talk shows, award shows and live events for both linear and digital networks including FOX, HBO, Showtime, Netflix, Amazon and ABC.

Leahy began at FS1 as co-host on THE HERD WITH COLIN COWHERD, a role she had for the show since its inception in 2015. The duo developed an easy chemistry that resonated with viewers across television and radio. Currently, she’s co-host of the Emmy nominated NBC show, American Ninja Warrior. Leahy also served as a contributor on SPEAK FOR YOURSELF. In 2016, Leahy was honored with a Gracies Award in the category of On-Air Talent, Sports, for her outstanding work on THE HERD WITH COLIN COWHERD.

She previously spent three years in the CBS and Turner Sports families as a sideline reporter for March Madness, regular-season college basketball and college football. Leahy also filled in as a host on the CBS Sports Network show “Lead Off,” while working as an anchor/reporter for the CBS Los Angeles and KCAL duopoly.

Leahy worked for the Boston Celtics as the team reporter from 2009-11, and for the New England sports radio station WEEI as a host and reporter before becoming sports anchor for FOX Boston at the age of 24. She has a bachelor of science in journalism from Boston University, where she was part of the team that created BUTV’s first sports talk show, which she co-anchored for three years.
