NASCAR Daytona 500 PreviewPerhaps a harbinger of what may come tomorrow, but it’s worth noting that the free Daytona 500 preview that NASCAR was offering through the iTMS has disappeared into the ether. Tomorrow is “New Content Tuesday,” so we will see if NASCAR has anything new for us this week. iLounge has previously said that NASCAR will be offering race highlights following events, so we’ll see if Daytona 500 highlights appear in iTunes tomorrow.

The Auto Club 500 at California Speedway in Fontana will be held on Sunday, February 26.

NASCAR Daytona 500 PreviewWell, now here’s a pleasant surprise. Noticed today in the iTMS, NASCAR has put together a free, 20-minute preview of this year’s Daytona 500, which will be run on Sunday and can be seen on NBC. Also worthy of note is that it is placing this in the category of “NASCAR 2006 Races” which could imply that further content could be forthcoming for the remainder of the long season, which runs through November. How much content will remain to be seen, but this is an interesting use of the technology.
