Grand Hall, Indiana Landmarks Center

Indianapolis Motor Speedway historian and storyteller extraordinaire Donald Davidson returns to Indiana Landmarks Center, and he’s bringing friends. In his fourth annual appearance for Indiana Automotive, an Indiana Landmarks affinity group, Davidson will interview Indy 500 drivers about racing and track culture at the famed Brickyard, a National Historic Landmark. There’ll be a Q&A, of course, including Davidson and veteran drivers Johnny Parsons, Jr. and Spike Gehlhausen.

Known for his radio program The Talk of Gasoline Alley, Davidson’s story-like responses to questions display humor and insider knowledge in equal measure. This year, Parsons and Gehlhausen will join him on stage in the Grand Hall at Indiana Landmarks Center, 1201 Central Avenue in Indianapolis.

Davidson’s talk is $10 for members of Indiana Automotive, $15 for members of Indiana Landmarks, and $20 for the general public. Indiana Landmarks Center is an accessible venue.

The affinity group welcomes members interested in the early auto visionaries and the preservation of the cars they made, their factories, showrooms, and homes, and the landscaped parkways and roadside architecture birthed by the auto age. Click here to learn more about Indiana Automotive.
