Audible Editor 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.

Please Pronounce Names Correctly

Jack Arute is as much a part of Indy as any of the drivers. These stories are amazing chunks of Indy history. The book is awesome. The guy reading needs to learn how to pronounce the names of the heros in this work; to mispronounce these names is very disrespectful and I'm sure Jack would not appreciate it.
