If you’re an Indy racing fan, Verizon has a cool new service that will help you keep up on your favorite racing team … Team Verizon! The spot is for the Indy Car Mobile app, which follows the IZOD Indy Car Series. With the app, users can listen to in car audio, keep track of races with leader boards, highlights, and even special tweets from the drivers (I hope while not racing!). Upcoming features to include live in-car camera for Verizon sponsored drivers, press conference streaming and Indy Car Nation exclusive content. According to the YouTube page, the app currently follows Indy racers Will Power, Helio Castroneves & Ryan Briscoe.
The spot features the HTC Thunderbolt, but according to the Indy Car Mobile App site, it’s not available for the Thunderbolt just yet. The app is, however, available for Motorola Droid phones, HTC Incredible and Droid Eris, LG Ally and Vortex, and Samsung Fascinate, Continuum, and Gem phones. In addition to the HTC Thunderbolt, the app will be coming soon to the HTC Merge, and the Motorola Xoom and Samsung Galaxy Tablets.
If you have one of these phones, you can text INDY to 3406 to download the app. Text and data rates apply. But you can also download it from the Android Market. The app is free to all supported users.
