Most of you do – and we’re really thankful for that. One thing I’ve noticed about IndyCar fans is that they’re passionate, vocal, knowledgeable and hungry for good online content. We’re trying to do a much better job with the online experience we offer.

There’s a section on the IndyCar website called Follow Us. Not sure if you’ve seen it or not. It’s a listing of all things digital. Intrigued? Check it.

It covers all the basics. You’ve watched our videos on YouTube. You’re likely a fan or ‘liker’ on Facebook. And hopefully you’ve participated in some of our contests through Twitter.

We’ve pushed really hard on Flickr this season, to give you behind-the-scenes access to all of the IZOD IndyCar Series races and events. Here’s one of my favorites.

Yep, a sandwich on the helmet

Beyond that, we have our nomee IndyCar and driver cards – stay connected to everything that happens online. It’s seriously social stream, information overload.

Everyone’s schedule is busy. Our friends at Flogs have created a downloadable IndyCar schedule for any device you might imagine. I’ve got the schedule on my iPhone and I also downloaded the entire World Cup schedule (in case you were wondering). You can even get access to the Newman/Haas Racing schedule. Pretty cool.

For all you Firefox users out there, we’ve partnered with Browser Nation to provide the ultimate pimped-out browsing experience. Now you can watch Race Control on IndyCar.com within an IndyCar browser. Who wouldn’t?

And we’re not done. In fact, look for new projects to emerge next week, some more later in the season and then it’s full speed ahead onto the 2011 season, for more fan-based experiences. In the meantime, enjoy some of these new digital goodies – and if you have an idea, we’d love to hear it. You know how to get a hold of us.

    I do love the online content. Streaming video of practice, quals, and races is pretty unique to the series. BUT, there is an official IndyCar iPhone app that is the worst in racing. There isn’t even a schedule available in it. I’ve emailed the developers and received no response. I’ve had it for over a year and don’t think it’s ever had an update. If the series is serious about new media, it should look at F1’s official app to see how content should be experienced.
