Verizon IndyCar Series team owner Sam Schmidt will return to the race track on Wednesday when he competes in the 2016 IRacing Pro Race Of Champions event at Phoenix International Raceway.
Speaking about the news, Schmidt commented by saying:
I’m very much looking forward to this event. “Last year I had no idea what to expect given I have very little simulator experience, but I was pleased to not qualify dead last (I left that honor to Ron Capps) and ran the entire event in spite of getting punted on the first lap. Now, we are going to one of my all-time favorite circuits in PIR and racing on the oval, which should level the playing ground somewhat. I still wish they would do an event with everyone utilizing the Arrow head controls, but maybe down the road. I’m just ecstatic to be in the same event with this list of incredible talent.
