Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio - 2/23/19 - New NASCAR Tech

On Sunday, February 24, the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race rounds out the weekend’s NASCAR action as this series picks up where it left off at the exciting Daytona 500.

Tickets for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 weekend can be purchased by calling 877-9-AMS-TIX or by visiting www.atlantamotorspeedway.com

Rick and Sully talk about some new NASCAR tech as the races come to Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend
 



1.  NASCAR Back in Atlanta this weekend.
Three big races. The only NASCAR races in Atlanta each year.


2.  Kennesaw’s Ultimate Tailgating to Sponsor AMS Truck Series Race this Weekend

Kennesaw, Georgia-based Ultimate Tailgating will sponsor the February 23 Ultimate Tailgating 200 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

“I can’t think of a better pairing than NASCAR and tailgating,” said Michael Bailey, CEO of Ultimate Tailgating. “We are excited to be on board with the Gander Outdoor Truck Series and there’s no better place than Atlanta Motor Speedway because that’s where we call home.”

Ultimate Tailgating is the nation’s premier event rental company specializing in all-inclusive tailgating, corporate, marketing and hospitality rentals. From concerts to football games and, of course, NASCAR, Ultimate Tailgating can elevate your tailgate. The company has eight locations that serve 40 states. NASCAR fans are familiar with Ultimate Tailgating on many levels. The fact that it is local to Metro Atlanta is the icing on the cake.


3. iRacing Gaining in Popularity
www.iracing.com

iRacing, an online simulation of the real deal each week in Nascar. The paint schemes on stock cars, the cockpit view of thick traffic, the detail of the tracks down to each tunnel turn, bridge and banking, are all so realistic it’s like watching a Nascar race from an in-car camera on broadcast TV.  

iRacing is the ultimate global racing portal. Whether you want to experience a NASCAR Cup car, a World of Outlaws Sprint car, an open-wheel IndyCar, an Australian V-8 Supercar, an IMSA Prototype or Touring Car, or the ultimate: an FIA Grand Prix car, iRacing’s online racing simulations offer them all. All you need is a computer equipped with one or more USB ports, and a digital wheel/pedal, or gamepad backed by a high-speed Internet connection. iRacing does the work for you by organizing and managing more than 40 official series, or you can choose to race in more than 400 private leagues or launch your own hosted events.
 

4. The new "NASCAR DRIVE"

Nascar Drive, a 360-degree camera feed, and communications between drivers and their crew chiefs. Nascar Drive will be available not only in the Nascar Mobile app but also on desktop and the mobile web. For the Daytona 500, fans will get the 360 view for Bubba Wallace’s No. 43 car. And with daily fantasy sports continuing to grow as an industry, Nascar has revamped its Nascar Fantasy Live game, which generated a 74 percent increase in players year over year and a 100 percent increase in total game entries.
 

5. NASCAR's New Marketing Strategy


Nascar is ushering in a new era of marketing, and not just because of the new generation of drivers. Nascar has suffered some of the largest declines across major American sports during the last two years. In 2016, Monster Energy Cup races averaged about 4.5 million viewers, but that number fell to 4.1 million viewers in 2017 and just 3.3 million viewers last year. All but a few individual races saw viewership declines, year over year.

In addition to the dropping ratings, some individual tracks have had trouble filling seats. Notably, fan favorites like Charlotte, Daytona and Richmond have torn out tens of thousands of seats to avoid mostly empty grandstands.

Despite falling viewership and attendance numbers, Nascar’s top marketers tracked its brand health through a number of key markets from 2017 to 2018, which experienced a “big bump,” according to Nascar vp of brand marketing Pete Jung. Heading into the 2019 season, Nascar plans to leverage its crop of young phenoms—who he called the greatest influx of new talent the sport may have ever seen—in its marketing, tap new technology and improve the in-person racing experience to boost fan interest in the sport.
Marketing a new generation

Nasacar faces a unique problem. When a fan’s favorite driver retires, who does the fan now root for? The racing circuit hopes to answer that by marketing its new class of rising stars.

The sport has worked with partners like 77 Ventures and VaynerMedia to create unscripted, driver-centric content for drivers to share on social media. Using their stories, Nascar “can take that creative to the next step and create a deeper dive into some of these young stars like Chase Elliot, Ryan Blaney and Bubba Wallace,” Gregory said, adding, “We use digital and social content to let fans have a chance to get to know them better and more quickly.”

Nascar also developed a 24-hour content studio in its Charlotte newsroom where video can be shot and cut whenever a driver visits.

Teaming with media agency Crossmedia, Jung said Nascar has developed a proprietary database that has allowed it to become more sophisticated in its marketing across a number of media, from national spots to strategic investments in 30 markets, as well as buys on streaming services like Pandora and Spotify. Nascar has also improved its programmatic and out-of-home buys.

As fans interact with content on digital, Nascar builds a profile that identifies the style and personality of a driver the fan might relate to. So when a driver like Tony Stewart retires, Nascar can target fans with content about Kyle Busch because they gravitate toward a driver who’s rebellious and surly.

6. NASCAR plans 2021 introduction for new Generation 7 Cup series car

Road-relevance and controlled costs are two of the targets for the next generation of NASCAR machinery.
NASCAR's new-for-2019 aerodynamic package for the existing Generation 6 cars is a bridge to the Generation 7 car.

"I think it's important to note that the reason we headed in this direction with the 2019 rules package was really to line us up for where we wanted to go in the future from a racing standpoint, both on track from a car's look and feel and then under the hood from an engine perspective," said NASCAR's executive vice president and chief racing development officer Steve O'Donnell.

"If you look at a lot of the dialogue we've had with our existing OEMs, potential OEMs, there's a lot of interest to do some things differently in terms of making the cars look even more like they do on the street, making sure that we can evolve some of our engine technology as well.

"So what we've done is spent the better part of a year putting together a Gen-7 model.

"We're in process now of going out and talking to OEMs, talking in the industry and getting their feedback on what they like and what they may want to see tweaked, but the goal for us is to roll this out fairly quickly with an accelerated timeline to 2021."

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio - 2/16/19 - Rick's Two Events this Week

Rick attended two big events in Atlanta this week.

The Technology Association of Georgia "Summit"
and
The Oracle Grow Live - Netsuite event with Magic Johnson



Rick and Sully talk about some of the topics at these two great events


 

1. TAG is the Technology Association of Georgia
www.tagonline.org

Their "Summit" is their biggest event each year.

So each year, the state’s tech community gathers at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Cobb County to celebrate and take a look at where the business of technology is heading in Georgia.

The Summit brings together and engages more than 1,200 prominent technology, business and thought leaders centered around the most prominent and relevant trends that are sparking, disrupting and driving innovation today through the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) — one of the country’s largest technology associations with 34,000+ members.

Summit Day is an invitation to engage with the tech community! It provides an opportunity to learn, meet, and discover new ways for your company to get involved, develop relationships, and identify potential partnerships. The Summit allows you to ‘be in the know’ on who is leading the industry in innovation and inspiring what’s next in technology.

The Summit showcased nationally recognized speakers, trending content sessions, the newest inductee into the Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia, and Georgia’s most innovative tech companies revolutionizing business. Attendees will also have an opportunity to demo the latest technology and interact with TAG’s 27 tech professional societies for ways to get plugged into what’s happening in the Georgia tech market. Keynotes were delivered by Tiffani Bova and Guy Kawasaki.
   
 
2.   Awards Given Away this week:

Top 10 and Top 40 Innovative Companies of Georgia
Companies selected as the “Top 10” and “Top 40” Innovative companies are showcased at The Summit, including an opportunity for the “Top 10” to address the Summit’s attendees.

“Top 40” recognition is awarded based on specific criteria focused on innovation, including:
degree of innovation
scope and financial impact of innovation
likelihood of success
promotion of Georgia's innovative efforts nationally and internationally

3. Highlights of the Summit and reports released

Georgia continues to be a top technology employment market
Georgia's technology sector grew significantly faster than the US average and employs nearly 300,000 private sector tech employees
Technology wages in the state have continued to increase – up 2.6% over last year, which is more than the increase seen from 2016 to 2017
Capital invested in Georgia remained high - and the total number of deals was the second highest since the report began tracking in 2012
 

4. Magic Johnson in town for Oracle Netsuite
www.netsuite.com

It’s one-stop shopping for businesses all over the world.

Netsuite is always being optimized for “what’s coming next.” New themes, new extensions and new ways to track sales and merchandise where introduced recently.
 

5. The Wisdom of Magic

Magic has been more than successful as he's made the transition from the basketball court to the boardroom.
He is involved in many successful business ventures.

Johnson may have retired from the National Basketball Association in 1991, but he says he needed to start his own business but lacked the knowledge. The key, he said, was getting mentors.

Atlanta played a key role in Johnson’r business success. He started off by leveraging on the spending power of African Americans who spend a trillion dollars a year. His first venture, after putting up Magic Johnson Enterprises, was investing in movie theaters.

“Our first movie theater ended up topping revenue for its opening weekend and was one of the highest grossing in the business.”

6. Magic on Teamwork, Building his Brand

He touched on his basketball career, what it takes to build a team and how he loves to hire and work with young people since they have fresh ideas and a glimpse into the future.

Other tidbits from Johnson included his philosophy on creating brand ambassadors by overserving and he told a great story about how he landed his first Disney contract.

With HEY you can send and receive a real human touch, no matter where you are. I saw this unique item at CES 2019 in Las Vegas and immediately thought of Valentine’s Day.

3. Cuisinart Automatic Cold Brew Coffee Maker: $99.95

Cuisinart's Automatic Cold Brew Coffee Maker introduces a new way to make authentic cold brew coffee – in as little as 25 minutes! Like traditional cold brewers, the Automatic Cold Brew Coffee Maker saturates coffee grounds in cool water, never exposing them to the high temperatures that release oils, which can create an acidic taste. Cuisinart utilizes a unique spin technology to circulate coffee through water for total flavor extraction in a fraction of the time manual brewers require, meaning that coffee is naturally smoother and sweeter.

3. Hyundai Shopper Assurance
Hyundai Shopper Assurance has transformed the car buying process, providing customers with a frictionless, efficient and transparent experience. Roughly one year after the program was rolled out to Hyundai dealers nationwide, and after receiving positive feedback from customers and dealers, Hyundai is starting national advertising for the program.
Hyundai's 60-second first-quarter Super Bowl ad will star Jason Bateman and show how much better car buying can be with Shopper Assurance. Jason Bateman, the award-winning actor, director and producer, will bring his comedic savvy to the ad in a way only he can.
Shopper Assurance consists of four elements that make the process of purchasing a car easier, faster and worry-free. Since the start of its national availability in February 2018, 632 of Hyundai's dealers now offer the voluntary program, representing more than 77 percent of Hyundai's sales volume. Customers who have purchased a Hyundai vehicle through the program have responded very favorably.:
 
4. HyperX Brings Videogaming to the Super Bowl
The HyperX truck is onsite
HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc. and brand leader in gaming and esports, today announced that the HyperX Esports Truck – North America’s first mobile competitive gaming arena – will host four days of free football gaming competition at the Super Tailgate Party located just one block from Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The newest, most state-of-the-art NFL stadium is ready to host the matchup on Super Bowl Sunday, and the expectation is that fans will once again break data usage records.
Every year the data usage numbers go up, and the same is expected at Super Bowl 53. Last year's Super Bowl 52 game between the Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles was the fifth year in a row that data usage broke records. Fans consumed 16.31 terabytes of data over Wi-Fi that year, and cell usage increased, too. There were 18.8 TB of data going over the Verizon network inside the stadium on game day last year, and AT&T reported 7.2 TB of data going over its network inside the stadium.

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio 1/26/19 - PGA Show Tech


Like so many, Rick is ready for warmer and dryer weather and that means Golf Season!

The 66th PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Jan. 22-25, 2019, welcomed more than 40,000 golf industry professionals from around the world to discover the newest trends and technology from some 1,000 exhibiting golf companies and brands.  The industry’s annual “MAJOR of Golf Business” features a packed four-day schedule beginning with PGA Show Demo Day, Jan. 22, at Orange County National Golf Center (OCN), and continuing at the Orange County Convention Center.
 
Lots of tech on display:

What was at the show?
Rick and Sully discuss:


1.   Mizuno's announcements
www.mizunousa.com

Mizuno's North American headquarters is here in Metro Atlanta.

Announced at the PGA Merchandise Show, Mizuno unveiled its first ever globally launched golf ball, the RB Tour and RB Tour X, as well as an addition to the JPX919 iron line and its latest hybrid.

Created after 12 years of wind tunnel testing at Mizuno’s MT test facility, a new Cone (C) dimple adds all-new wind performance to the trademark soft feel and feedback of Mizuno’s previous Tour golf ball models in the four-piece RB Tour and RB Tour X.

 


2. Callaway Apparel - SWING TECH
www.callawayapparel.com


Callaway remains one of the biggest names in golf.
SWING TECH™  is their new technology that fuses athletic performance with classic fit and game-changing innovation. New construction and materials provide noticeably less restriction and more stretch to maximize your range of motion on every swing.
SWING TECH™ is featured in a variety of products in the 2019 Callaway line including:

Polos
Golfers can count on greater flexibility through the shoulders through a combination of a all-new seam construction and pliable blended materials. Taking a new approach on seam construction, our polos have taken the performance attributes of an athletic raglan sleeve and restructured it so that golfers still get the authentic golf styling that they know and love.  Featured SWING TECH polos include the all-new SWING TECH gingham polo, SWING TECH jacquard polo and SWING TECH fine line color block polo.

Shorts
The SWING TECH ergo shorts feature the all-new ergo seam and refined active waistband to provide more freedom of movement from the waist down. With the ergo seam, we have eliminated the need for side seams that limit flexibility where you need it most, giving you greater stretch and lighter feel.

Outerwear
Not only featured in polos, SWING TECH is also prominently incorporated into outerwear with a modified construction design, flexible materials and strategically placed stretch panels to help improve your movement, regardless of the conditions, making them the perfect complementary piece. Brand new in 2019, the all-new SWING TECH Cooling+ 1/4 zip pullover provides golfers with the performance of SWING TECH construction as well as cutting edge fabric that promotes rapid moisture wicking and superior sun protection.
 
 

3. Club Car Tempo Walk
www.clubcar.com

Meet Club Car’s Tempo™ Walk, a new hands-free robotic golf caddie unit, provides enjoyment for golfers who walk the course. The wireless, autonomous caddie is designed to enhance the golf experience and also foster health and wellness.

For fitness minded golfers and those who enjoy walking, Tempo Walk delivers a caddie-like experience different than traditional push carts, electric or otherwise. For course operators, it’s a fresh, functional and environmentally friendly cart option and experience to offer customers.
Blending tradition and technology similar to Club Car’s recently launched Tempo™ Connect golf car, Tempo Walk’s stylish hands-free golf caddie unit makes walking the course pleasant and easier than other push carts.

It offers state-of-the-art wireless technology including GPS yardage and hands-free remote control to maneuver easily around the course.

Constructed with a durable aluminum frame, Tempo Walk contains a lithium ion battery which holds a 36-hole charge. It moves up to seven mph and weighs 95 pounds. Additional technology features include a USB port and touchscreen tablet with GPS yardage. Traditional golf car offerings – a cup holder, cooler, divot repair and sand bottle, are also included. With a compact frame size, four Tempo Walk golf caddies can fit into the space of one golf car, another benefit for course operators.
 

4. PhiGolf  golf smartstick
https://www.phigolf.info/

I also saw this at CES.

Owning a simulator is a dream for golfers. It’s also a pricy dream, with most costing in the $40,000 range. But those on a budget don’t have to be denied the pleasures of such an experience thanks to PhiGolf.
PhiGolf is a smart stick that serves as the golf club, capable of connecting to a smartphone or TV. Golfers can not just use this for entertainment (there are several game modes, including 18 holes, match play, driving range or closest-to-the-pin), but the stick also provides data and analysis of your swing and stroke. All which can be yours for $249.
 


5. FlightScope Introduces World’s First Environmental Optimizer Feature to its X3 Tracking Radar
www.flightscope.com

Leader in sports technology unveils first-of-its-kind feature, allowing golfers to practice for various environmental conditions

FlightScope, a world leader in the development and manufacturing of 3D Doppler tracking radars for sports, announces today the launch of the world’s first Environmental Optimizer (FS|EO), giving golfers a new way to analyze, practice and improve their game. FlightScope’s new innovative component for the X3 tracking radar gives users the ability to configure environmental conditions, without physically changing locations – meaning golfers who typically practice in flat, low altitudes, and vice versa, can now practice smarter and see how their shot would match up against an entirely different environmental climate.
 

6.   Sun Mountain's FinnCycle
www.sunmountain.com

Forget golf and push carts, you can now use a motor bike to get around the course,
It travels at 15 miles per hour, the same speed that a golf cart travels. Your clubs are held in place in the middle of the bike with supports and straps. It will fit pretty much any bag other than a staff bag; Sun Mountain’s biggest cart bag fits. Rest your feet on the footbeds, and control your speed with a small thumb lever on the right handlebar. Both the right and left handlebars have breaks, and there’s kickstand to keep the bike upright while you’re hitting.

Besides being fun to ride around on, FinnCycle’s benefits extend to pace of play. In testing, the team at Sun Mountain found it easy to play 18 holes in under two hours. Obviously, that’s reliant on not having to wait on play in front of you. Right now, it’s not available for individual consumers to buy. They’re selling to golf courses as well as fleet sales.
