Verizon IndyCar Series: Behind the Scenes Look With Verizon Performance Engineers

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a busy place in May, including for Verizon’s performance engineers who are constantly on the move at the famous oval.

This year, we offered a Verizon IndyCar Series sneak preview to tech and track bloggers to check out the behind-the-scenes action. From our in-building solution at the landmark Pagoda to scoreboard antennas, we’ve got the track covered – as well as the hundreds of thousands of fans who will be on site for the 98th running of the Indy 500.

Here are some photos and tweets from our Verizon IndyCar Series preview day:
