In the spring 2012 edition of American Road Magazine our National Road column features a story about the Indianapolis Speedway. Other than the fact that both surfaces were navigated in cars, you might well ask, how are they related?

In Part I of our two part series on the Indianapolis Speedway entitled Kissing the Golden Brick, my guest is track historian Donald Davidson. He is uniquely qualified to tell the tale of this famous race course since he is its full time historian, a position found nowhere else in the world. Donald tells us in this segment how he came all the way from Great Britain to be the track historian and about how the Indianapolis Speedway was born from a vision that Carl Fisher had to promote the newly introduced automobiles to the American public.
