When they first hit the scene, racing simulators were generally seen as a kid's game.  Oh, what a difference 25 years has made.

On this week's Hard Left Turn podcast, Brandon Reed and Pete McCole - two long time simulator users - take a look at this history and impact on racing simulators on the motorsports industry, including:

-A brief look at the history of the Papyrus NASCAR simulators, and their involvement with them.

-A look at how customizable those simulators were, and how that led to Pete and Brandon meeting each other.

-The rise of iRacing, and how that has become a proving ground for aspiring real life racers.

-The importance that manufacturers and teams have put on their high-end racing simulators in the age of the NASCAR testing ban.
