If you own Samsung's GearVR headset and a compatible smartphone, you'll be able to watch the Daytona 500 like you were in the stands, starting line, middle of the infield, and even the pit lane. Not only that, but the VR stream will include dedicated audio commentary and pop-up graphics telling you who is in pole position.

The Daytona 500 will be free-to-view and will start on Sunday, February 21 @ 1PM ET.
