NascarNASCAR Mobile Technology Center : NASCAR will introduce a new state of the art Mobile Technology Center (MTC) during the running of the NASCAR All-Star Challenge at Lowe's Motor Speedway, May 20. The MTC will serve as the at-track home base for NASCAR's Timing and Scoring system and provide a platform to launch additional technology initiatives. The MTC establishes a consistent high-tech work space for NASCAR to collect and process timing and scoring data, and opens up opportunities for continuous technological advancement within the sport. AMD, the Official Technology Partner of NASCAR, and Tissot, the Official Timekeeper of NASCAR, are consulting with NASCAR to refine its timing & scoring system.

In addition to the role the MTC will play in timing and scoring, NASCAR plans to explore the impact this new technology could have on ongoing safety, competition, and cost-saving initiatives at NASCAR's Research and Development Center; streamlining and improving the security of the event-credentialing process; serving as the hub for NASCAR's race-day statistical unit; and deploying new scanning and computer modeling technology that could expedite and advance the inspection process.

The MTC hauler, branded with the logos of AMD and Tissot, will be situated in the TV compound at each NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series event. An additional hauler is currently under construction that will be utilized at NASCAR Busch Series and NASCAR Craftsman Series stand-alone events.

Sophisticated NASCAR statistics
"The Mobile Technology Center will serve as NASCAR's at-track technology hub, and we're excited about all of the opportunities it will provide in advancing our sport," said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR vice president for competition. "The MTC gives us a starting point for improving the systems providing accurate and immediate race data, processing that data for more sophisticated NASCAR statistics, announcing results, and sharing race information with fans and media. At the track, the MTC will help NASCAR to operate even more efficiently."

Official timing and scoring systems
AMD helps improve NASCAR's official timing and scoring systems by powering the servers that process more than a half million data points at each NASCAR race, providing accurate results as quickly as possible. Within the MTC, more than 40 AMD Opteron(TM) processor-based servers and AMD Turion 64 Mobile Technology-based laptops provide for quicker timing and scoring updates, and help enhance the NASCAR experience for the drivers, teams and fans.

NASCAR All-Star Challenge Race
"NASCAR fans value competition and know the enormous impact technology can have on every aspect of motorsports racing," said Bill LaRosa, corporate vice president, North America and Global Accounts at AMD. "From the complex benefits of wind tunnel testing to accuracy in timing and scoring to continuous improvements in safety, NASCAR is harnessing the power of AMD Opteron processor-powered computing to operate faster, safer, and smarter. We are pleased to partner with NASCAR to help make this great sport even better."

NASCAR events to review current technology
NASCAR and Tissot, along with other partners, are teaming up to review current technology used to time NASCAR events. The goal is to continue to use technology to acquire more comprehensive information from the competitors as the race is in progress, to strive toward increasing the accuracy of "freeze the field," which is the procedure NASCAR follows once the caution flag is issued, and to enhance the experience for the fans through the use of this information by the sport's media partners.

Innovative timekeeping and scoring technology
"Tissot has been measuring time for world-class sporting events like NASCAR for years," said Olivier Cosandier, General Manager, Tissot U.S. "We look forward to the challenge of working with NASCAR Competition and AMD to offer new and innovative timekeeping and scoring technology."
