We are providing state-of-the-art weather technology and information on the IBM Cloud in a format that NASCAR has never had and never used before to increase the efficiency of their race operations, as well as increasing fan safety.

Business Challenge

The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) was unable to consistently understand weather conditions and determine stop and start times for races based on current and near-term weather forecasts.

Transformation

NASCAR engaged IBM Business Partner Flagship Solutions Group to implement a weather dashboard based on the IBM Cloud. The solution provides NASCAR management with the most accurate weather data to determine when to start and stop races, and it delivers better safety and security information for fans attending the race.
