Borg-Warner Trophy

Race fans, Indianapolis Motor Speedway Historian Donald Davidson is embarking on another Indianapolis 500 Statewide Engagement tour, leading up to the Greatest Spectacle in Racing. Donald will be once again visiting cities and towns all over Indiana and the Midwest. These events will be open forum, Q&A based presentations, with Donald taking time to answer questions from the audience.

He is the co-author of the Autocourse Official History of the Indianapolis 500. His expertise has lent a helping hand to multiple national outlets covering the Indianapolis 500 over the years and his persona has become synonymous with radio coverage of the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing.” In 2010, he was inducted into the Auto Racing Hall of Fame, and recently, the Indianapolis Star declared Davidson as one of the 100 most influential people in the history of the Indianapolis 500.
