Editorial Reviews

At the Indy 500, exchanges between drivers off the track can be as explosive as those on the track, and Tony Carnaghi's lively and animated reading of Jack Arute and Jenna Fryer's book transports the listener to the front row of the action.
A single wrong turn, improper pass, or blown tire can spell defeat in the race, but they can also easily result in peril.  Arute and Fryer expertly capture the drama and volatility of "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing" with this collection of riveting stories, and Carnaghi elevates their prose with a performance that makes it difficult to stop listening after hitting play.

Fun listen, but mispronunciations of well-known names a distraction

Some very interesting, insider stories. A little short on depth, but good for quick listens with a personal touch. Major issue, though, with constant mispronunciations of well-known people's names. Did the publisher even have one knowledge person listen to this before releasing? Amateurish and took away from the book's credibility.

Name Pronunciation.

I found it difficult to listen to the Pronunciation of some very Famous People in racing.
Seems' to me, With a name like Carnaghi,
You would know how to pronounce The Most Famous Names in Indy History.
Great Stories Jack. Disappointing teller.
