Learn about the Guest Speaker.

Paul Page, well known as “The Voice of the Indy 500,” captured the excitement of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” for 27 consecutive Memorial Day Indy 500 races. He fell in love with racing and the Speedway as a teenager, and it became his obsession. “With the swing of the green flag,” he writes, “thirty-three race cars thundered down the straightaway at full throttle. It took my breath away…I realized, “this is it. This is what I want to do with my life. Somehow, I had to be a part of this.”

Over the years, Paul has had a multifaceted career. As a news reporter in April 1968, he was standing only a few feet from Bobby Kennedy when he made his historic speech about Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination. Paul’s new book, “Hello, I’m Paul Page. It’s Race Day in Indianapolis,” opens dramatically with the plummeting of the WIBC Radio news helicopter when it crashed onto the football field at Speedway High School in 1977. All three passengers survived… after a long, intense recovery, Paul returned to broadcasting, making countless national television and radio network appearances.

Synonymous with the best of sports broadcasting, knowledgeable, and personable, Paul was heard for years on “NBC Sports,” “ESPN,” and “ABC Sports.” Never limiting himself to only racecars, Paul expertly covered a broad range of sporting events from Sumo wrestling, the X-Games, and every form of racing in the Olympics. Over the years, despite tragedies witnessed on the track, Paul Page’s enthusiasm for the Indy 500 race never waned. A protégé of famed broadcaster Sid Collins, he took over the coveted 500 announcer’s position after Collins’ tragic death. Paul has been semi-retired since 2016.

On August 5, 2022, at Savoy Automobile Museum, Paul Page will talk about a wide range of sporting events – from the ill-fated 1973 race to his insightful and sensitive interviews with iconic drivers, including four-time winner A.J. Foyt, who is renowned for being, as Paul puts it, “intimidating.” Paul will also describe many intriguing episodes, including an incident that unfolded at Foyt’s Texas ranch where Paul was a houseguest — a story that illustrates the legendary tough driver’s compassionate side.

He will also pay tribute to Sid Collins, his mentor. During the early 1950s, Collins developed a riveting multi-announcer broadcasting concept for IMS Radio Network and convinced long-time Speedway owner Tony Hulman of its merit. In his book, Page praises Hulman for his kindness while he celebrates the inclusive spirit of the Indy 500:

“It’s a place for everyone: the wealthiest sponsors, owners, and stars; the middle-class ticket holders, and the blue-collar fans in the field.”

Ken Gross, Savoy Automobile Museum Guest Curator, will join Paul on stage to moderate the presentation. “I listened to Sid Collins and Paul Page for years,” says Ken. “It’s an honor and a thrill to be here with a living legend.”
