8:39 am

8:44 am
place they lagged behind. a lot of the cars we drive and our farce were fancier and now that changed. tom johnson shows you nascar's brand new digital dashboard. >> nascar is changing the way drivers monitor pretty much everything on board their cars. this is what the dash boards used to look like before the season. but these dash boards have taken a technological leap forward. it is a leap that catches up with the text a ch you have in your cars. casey mears, number 13 chevy, and the fancy ltv video screen, the leap. >> the avenue for drivers and cars. >> and, pat works for casey mears racing competition ford performance and says the digital dash boards are about making sure the drivers and teams have quick and easy access to info. >> you want a fuel saving mode
8:45 am
flag mode. it lets them customize and switch between screens to keep track of what is going on. >> and eventually, it will feed some of that info to you, the fans. in the future it will allow the fans to engage more with the data. as the data becomes available. >> now, it gives drivers an easier, more tech-current way to do their jobs. >> this is the next step of nascar. cool. i want one of those. how much do they cost? i can't afford them. >> thank you. >> i can't afford it, either. >> amy: in the front know of eliott. >> john: a young guy. 20-year-old, and, in college, maybe starting the guy and this guy is on top of the world, at just 20 becomes the youngest
