Now that the chase for the Sprint Cup is in full ? um ? sprint, you will find two different types of people in New England. There are those who can?t understand the intrigue of a bunch of guys turning left. And there are those decked out in really colorful T-shirts who want to slap the first group across the face with an oil-stained hand.
Now, there is something to bring the two sides closer together.
IRacing.com is an online motorsports simulator designed to give everyone and anyone a glimpse inside the world or racing. It was brought to life, in large part, by John Henry. The Red Sox? principal owner is an avid ?sim racer,? and his company?s creation duplicates the look and feel of tracks and cars to the smallest bump and shake. To try it, you need a subscription to iRacing.com, your PC, and a wheel/pedal set from an electronics store.
Recently, Roush Fenway driver Greg Biffle introduced fans at Game On to iRacing.com. The lesson: Racing is not so easy, even for battle-tested New Englanders.
Perhaps with this understanding, we can have peace among the people.
