Paul Tracy and GEICO have teamed up with RACER.com to bring you P.T.'s multi-media, must-read take on the biggest race of them all, the Indianapolis 500.
Click here to check out the exciting, interactive digital magazine. It's free and it's loaded with insight and opinion from RACER.com's Indy 500 columnist and his KV Racing crew, plus video, photos and a peek beneath the skin of the No. 15 GEICO Dallara-Honda.
Ever wondered what it's like to dive into Turn 1 of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, go wheel to wheel at 225mph, or make the inch-perfect pit stop that could win or lose the race? P.T.'s got all that covered, and a lot more besides, in 12 action-packed, digital pages.
“For a racecar driver, the Indianapolis 500 is the biggest, toughest, most prestigious race in the world, bar none,” says Tracy. “I can't wait to get out there and get started, and I want to give you an idea of what it's all about with this digital magazine. It's packed full of insight on me, the car, the team, the track and the race itself – perfect to get you ready and pumped to cheer me on when we take the start of the 2010 Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 30.
“I can tell you this: the owners of KV – Kevin Kalkhoven and Jimmy Vasser – have put together the best possible team they could in terms of people and equipment, because that's the only way to take on Indy. Our aim is winning this thing, and we couldn't be more serious about trying to make that happen.
“Same with GEICO. Last year we went back to the Indy 500 together, blew off the rust, blew off some big names, and gained a bunch of experience. However, that was quite a late deal, pulling all the necessary strands together.
“This year, GEICO's commitment to me has meant we've all had a real heads-up, we look like strong contenders, and we're fighting fit.
“I don't need to say it but I will anyway: I'm going to be giving it everything I've got!”
With the rain falling at Indy, Tracy, his race strategist Barry Green and the KV Racing crew haven't had the running they'd like so far, but their collective experience means Tracy is confident they'll hit the ground running once the weather starts to play ball again.
“It's kind of frustrating, but it's the same for everybody,” says Tracy. “You just have to deal with it. Meanwhile, it means I'm spending far too much time on my bus, checking how many hits this digital magazine is getting. Send the link to everybody you know and get it out there – I want the Gecko and me to go completely viral and out of control!”
