Fox Sports' SPEED Network had so much success with its flagship show, "Race Hub", they felt the need to kick the show's branding into a higher gear. Leviathan was presented with the opportunity to create a new show package for the program, demonstrating how racing's epicenter, Charlotte, NC, is truly the hub of all things NASCAR...but with the challenge of NOT showing a single race car. Eschewing the usual macho stereotypes and instead taking a more sophisticated, futuristic approach, Leviathan explored both the micro and macro perspective of racing, from hyper-detailed engine parts up to a birds-eye satellite view. SPEED ultimately decided on the latter concept, though multiple visual stages are included here for your viewing pleasure.
