“Start Your Engines,” is the command you’ll hear when you watch the Indy 500 online this year. Did I say online? That’s where I will be – sitting conveniently in the comfort of a chair pulled up to my computer where I will catch all the action at the second race celebrating the Centennial of the opening of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Where will your “grandstand” seat be May 30, 2010 for the start of the 94th Indianapolis 500?
It could be in front of your own computer once you get a hold of this fabulous software I discovered. You can easily download it from the Internet, install it in a breeze and then operate it for viewing all the high-speed action the Indy 500 presents. This software is your ticket package for viewing the Chevrolet Camaro SS pace car driven by Robin Roberts, anchor for Good Morning America on ABC and a former sportscaster at ESPN. Just hook up with a high speed Internet connection through DSL or cable. Get set to see this year’s honorary starter, Jack Nicholson, get the race running. There’s a version available for both a PC and a Mac, so everyone can benefit from its use.
The drivers all compete in vehicles with Honda engines, tired by Firestone on a Dallara chassis. From an Italian manufacturer that basically constructs chassis for all Formula races. The Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg winner, Australian Will Power of Team Penske, will be back behind the wheel at this year’s Indy 500. So will Brazilian Helio Castroneves, also a Team Penske entry, who won the inaugural Grand Prix of Alabama. He beat out New Zealander Scott Dixon, the all-time winning Indy Car racer – from Team Ganassi – also slated to suit up for the Indy 500.
This software is a great feature installed on the laptop of always-on-the-go people who take it along for the ride.
