The IRA Brickel's IndyCar Series has reached new heights, the 2016 Indianapolis 500 has officially reached 10,000 video views on YouTube! The previous most-viewed video was the 2013 Indianapolis 500, published three years prior to the newest one. The IRA is very pleased to see the popularity of the video, and is happy to welcome new fans to the series. Being the only original IRA series still in existence, it has become very important to show a good mixture of history and new tradition in the series. Joe Donohue, creator of the race and the series, is quoted: "This is a major milestone for myself personally, the series, and the entire IRA. I've never experienced a video reaching such a high number as quickly as this one. This major accomplishment is worth a lot to me, hopefully we can keep the viewership and see another 10,000 [video views] in 2017!"
