Pro vs. GI Joe Heads to Indy 500

On Wednesday, May 26, IndyCar racers used to gripping a steering wheel will pick up their instruments to compete against service members in Guitar Hero 5®. The competition is another interactive adventure put on by the Pro vs. GI Joe program, sponsored by the USO and Activision.

As part of Indy 500 Community Day, IndyCar drivers Townsend Bell, Raphael Matos, Davey Hamilton and Simona De Silvestro will take on troops based in Baghdad, Iraq, as well as local troops from the Indianapolis National Guard, who will be taking on the racers in person. The virtual “battle of the bands” will get going on the Coca-Cola stage at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. — Christian Pelusi, USO
