Indy 500 was one of the nine launch titles offered when the Atari 2600 went on sale[2] in September 1977. Sears Tele-Games later re-released it as Race. Included with each game was a set of two driving controllers, which were identical in appearance to the 2600 paddle controller but could rotate indefinitely in either direction, among other differences.
