Data Tools and Analysis

Car Chief

SMT’s technology calculates pit stop data in real time that includes total number of pit stops during the race, total pit stop time(s), number of tires changed, time of each tire change, jack movement time, and overall time spent on pit road from each of the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series drivers and crew teams.

Car Chief is used as an analytical application for the broadcast production team to search, sort, rank, and evaluate all the pit stop events through a visual touch screen. This system reveals compelling details about a crucial piece of the race that usually goes without objective data.
