Engage Mobile released the second video from the event at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Graham Rahal, Bobby Rahal, the Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing and the Verizon IndyCar Series.

The video uses cutting-edge technology to tap into the exciting world of motorsports via wearable computing. Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing worked with Engage Mobile, to capture the video by having Graham Rahal wear Google Glass inside of his helmet during a lap of the new road course at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

“At Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, we are always looking to leverage the latest technology for our National Guard Honda program,” said Bobby Rahal, Indy 500 winner and co-owner of RLL. “We were excited to work with Engage Mobile to experiment with the latest wearable technology from Google before it is available to the general public.”

“Racing is all about shaving hundredths of a second from your lap time and pit stops, and our team is looking for every opportunity to get better and faster,” said Graham Rahal, driver of the No. 15 National Guard Honda. “The video allows the public a personal view of our fast-paced world and allows us to look for ways to become even better.”

“It was a delight to work with RLL Racing -– one of the top teams in the Verizon IndyCar Series – at the most famous track in the world,” said Matthew Barksdale, president of Engage Mobile Solutions. “We are always looking for ways to help companies use mobile technology to drive their business, and RLL is a great example of a company looking to gain a competitive advantage through the use of technology.”
