The Voice Of Indianapolis Motor Speedway Dies [VIDEO]

Tom Carnegie remembered

The “Voice of Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” Tom Carnegie died Friday at the age of 91.

Carnegie called the Indy 500 motor race sixty one times, the Brickyard 400 twelve times and the Indy Grand Prix six times. He worked for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway from 1946 until he retired in 2006. When Carnegie first started at the track, women were not even allowed in pit row and when he retired, Danica Patrick was a driver.

Tom Carnegie was also a broadcaster in other sports. He called the game on the public address system when little Milan won the Indiana High School State basketball championship in 1954. Carnegie had a cameo role in the movie “Hoosiers” about that event.

This year’s Indy 500 on Memorial Day just won’t be the same.
