In late March, new Indy track owner
and 2015 Automotive Hall of Fame Inductee Roger Penske announced that the Memorial Classic race would, for the first time ever, be run in August. How can I make it through this pandemic without racing? IRacing, which first hit the scene in September of 2004, is the virtual real deal.

The Automotive Hall of Fame has more than 800 individuals that are honored for their contributions to the automotive industry from all over the globe.
During the current pandemic, we are limited in our ability to move about freely. Our identities are closely tied to our ability to go where and when we choose – in other words, to be mobile. As usual, the automotive industry is stepping up with innovative solutions, including tomorrow’s historic virtual Indy race .

The automotive industry has many such examples of ingenuity that impact daily life in unexpected ways. Ford Motor Company created the moving assembly line, and Henry Ford couldn’t have done it without Clarence Avery , who took a 728 minute assembly to just 93 minutes.
