TrackSide Online presented by Honda Racing is a news service devoted exclusively to INDYCAR racing. Commonly referred to as TSO, TrackSideOnline.com has been covering the IZOD IndyCar Series for over 10 years by attending all of the practices, qualifying sessions and races, including the international events.
A highly trusted news source, TSO’s in depth coverage is read by drivers, team owners, officials and race fans that want the inside scoop on what is really happening within INDYCAR.
That’s what we do. So why does Joe from TSO want to run the virtual Indy 500 against other journalists?
Back before he joined up with TSO, he used to pass the time running racing simulations. Anyone remember “Indianapolis 500: The Simulation?”
He used to spend hours trying to win in the Lola/Buick using a keyboard. IndyCar Racing? Grand Prix Legends? He spent far more hours on all of these games than he probably should have.
But that was before marriage and two kids. Why does he want to get back into sim racing against journalists?
Simple – he thinks he can win. Is he good enough to beat anyone with any actual racing talent (real or sim)? Of course not.
But based off some go-kart races against other journalists, and if I get some seat time in iRacing, I think I can win.
