On Beyond The Bricks, Jake Query and Mike Thomsen celebrate some of the great traditions of the Indianapolis 500. We hear some renditions of “(Back Home Again in) Indiana” from before when Jim Nabors became the beloved performer of the song, as well as some of the earliest radio calls from 16th and Georgetown.

We learn from Donald Davidson about how the race became known as “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing,” and listen to historic audio from three-time winner Wilbur Shaw and two-time champ Bill Vukovich.
