Back by popular demand is our historical series with Donald Davidson, Gasoline Alley Unplugged! We’ve taken a slightly different approach to the content as we’re not going to be embedding audio files into the posts. Instead, we’re going to be combining the photograph and audio together to give you a quick video to share with all of your fellow Indianapolis Motor Speedway history buffs!
We’ve spent the past two years digitizing thousands of new photos so we have a deep library to pull from. As always, if you have questions or ideas for future Gasoline Alley Unplugged topics leave them in the comments section below and we’ll do our best to get them answered for you. You can tweet your questions to us as well! Be sure to tag @IMS and #GAUnplugged in the tweet.
Enjoy the first video!
I am a huge fan of the 500 and Mr. Davidson, just give him a photo and let him talk, it is all interesting to me!
Glad to see this feature is back, looking forward to more. Here's a person I'd like to see profiled that I don't think has been: the man who carried the trophy to Victory Lane from the 1950s into I think the '80s-- Jack McKenzie(?) I heard once he was a schoolteacher, but nothing else about him. I'd like to know how he got the job, how long he did it, and who's in charge of the trophy now?
