The FOX Sports 1 commercial shoot, set to an energized version of the classic tune Happy Days are Here Again, opened in Charlotte, N.C. There, Hendrick Motorsports teammates Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne worked with a 150-person production crew, dozens of extras and a few high-tech toys to re-create the intense on-track action of a 200-mph NASCAR Sprint Cup race.
“You never know what to expect when doing something like this,” Gordon said of the shoot. “Things come together fast and they can change at the last second … it definitely takes you out of your element. You’ve got to be open-minded to what the director or the script may call for and have fun with it.”
