The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Lost Part Of Its Heart and Soul Today. RIP Tom Carnegie.

Tom Carnegie, one of the few remaining original links to Tony Hulman’s reclamation of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1946, passed away this morning at age 91. He did his job better than anyone else could have for sixty one straight years.

The entire racing community and every single fan of the sport lost a cherished and treasured family member today. The sport now has a large void that no one will ever likely fill. His voice was synonymous with the drama that unfolded every year at Indy.

RIP, Tom. You were the very best.
