“This opportunity will allow us to engage millions of fans through the broadcast mediums around the world as well as the 300,000 people (attending) the largest single sports event in the world, the Indianapolis 500," Penske said to an applause. “It’s important to demonstrate the physical and mental challenges that our amazing drivers face each weekend by monitoring (their) mental condition throughout the race. We have the technology to put the fans in the drivers’ seat so they can appreciate the capabilities of these amazing athletes."
He also talks about all the great things that happened in broadcast TV during the CART days.
