There's a lot of benefits to being a NASCAR fan, but one of the biggest drawbacks is the sport's lack of consumer tech offerings.
For example: There is no iPhone app, and there is no place to legally view a live stream of today's Daytona 500. Yep, that's right – NASCAR and its partners haven't been able to come to an agreement on how live streaming would work for the Sprint Cup Series when FOX is broadcasting the races (NASCAR.com/Turner owns the digital rights, so there's a conflict).
Live streaming will likely arrive in 2013 when NASCAR itself takes over the rights to NASCAR.com, but those fans who can't get in front of a TV to watch FOX today are pretty much out of luck – at least in terms of legal feeds. We can't recommend any illegal live streams to you here, so you'll have to ask a friend for that information.
But there is one option for those who may be stuck at work today – the Motor Racing Network is offering a free radio feed of its broadcast today.
You can find the live MRN feed here.
And if listening to the race is not an option for you, make sure to follow me on Twitter (I'm @jeff_gluck). I'll be up in the Daytona International Speedway press box today tweeting about all things Daytona 500.
