CX 2611, Indy 500, & CX 2612, Street Racer!

This week's games are by Atari and are two of the original launch titles, Indy 500 and Street Racer. I was very fortunate to be able to contact Indy 500 programmer Ed Riddle this week, and he graciously answered my questions about his life and Indy 500. Thank you Mr. Riddle! Next week the focus is on Games By Apollo and their games Skeet Shoot and Space Chase. Please send me your stories of these games or any 2600 memories you'd like to share and I'll read them on the show. Thanks for listening!
