Richard Childress on death of Tom Carnegie

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (February 11, 2011) - The following is a statement by Richard Childress, president and CEO of Richard Childress Racing, regarding the passing of Tom Carnegie, the legendary public address announcer at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, who passed away today at the age of 91:

"Tom Carnegie is as closely related to the rich history of Indianapolis Motor Speedway as all of the legendary drivers and race cars that competed at The Brickyard for the past 100 years. He was 'The Voice of Indy' for generations, whether it was Indy Cars, NASCAR or Formula One, and that voice was as recognizable as any in sports. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his immediate family and his IMS family."
