Longtime voice of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Tom Carnegie has died at the age of 91. Connecticut-native Carnegie was the voice of the speedway since 1946… after getting his start in radio in 1942. Speedway historian Donald Davidson says Carnegie wanted to keep a simple announcing style, without advanced technology that made its way to the track.
Carnegie was also a sportscaster for three decades at WRTV in Indianapolis. The station announced he died in his Indianapolis home this morning.
