All Those Daytona 500 Crashes Even Took Out One Of Fox’s Camera Drones

The Daytona 500 didn’t go too well for quite a few racers yesterday and it also did not go well for Fox Sports’ new tethered camera drone. During one of the many crashes a piece of debris smacked the drone right out of the sky.

We don’t know specifically which crash disabled the drone but we will update this post if we hear back from Fox Sports. All we know is that we are going to be safe from a robot uprising if it ever happens during a NASCAR race.

Did the drone get taken out during the 3rd quarter overtime points negation race, or was it after the 7th inning stretch when everyone sang “Take me out to the stage race”?
