IndyCar Road racer regular Courtney Terrell who was seen at the top of the week a few times took some time to speak with me and tell me a bit about himself.

Did we say enthusiastic? Add illustrious, at least in some cases. With names like Power, Wilson and Scheckter, Bettenhausen, George and Krisiloff the entry list reads like a Who’s Who of Indy car racing, past, present and yet to come. Some are active Indy car drivers, others the sons and grandsons of some of the sport’s most legendary and influential figures, still others are rank ‘n file members of iRacing.com with names like Simpson, Doyle and Cress. Call them what you want, they call themselves the 16th Street Racing League. Thanks to iRacing.com, they get together every Wednesday evening from as far away [...]
