IMS Historian Davidson has been a fixture at the Speedway since first appearing at the Indianapolis 500 in 1964, where he amazed the motorsports community and fans alike with his encyclopedic knowledge of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.” Davidson is a regular public speaker and hosts the popular radio show, “The Talk of Gasoline Alley,” during IMS events, and was elected to the IMS Hall of Fame in 2010.

Jenkins, who was elected to the IMS Hall of Fame in 2019, is a member of the IMS Public Address team, but the Indiana native was one of the first on-air employees of ESPN and served as play-by-play host of NASCAR and NTT IndyCar Series television coverage for more than 30 years, retiring in 2012. Jenkins was also “The Voice of the 500” as lead announcer of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Radio Network from 1990-98.

Submit questions for Donald: Jenkins, who will serve as host for the Zoom conversation, will ask Donald a limited number of pre-screened, fan-submitted questions throughout the course of the conversation. Fans can submit a question (one per person) to the Museum’s Mike Thomsen at The deadline for submissions is noon (ET) Tuesday, Sept. 29.
