Celebration of Racing & Automotive Legends

Join us as we once again as the Crown Hill Heritage Foundation celebrates the Racing & Automotive Legends at Crown Hill with IRMA (Indiana Racing Memorial Association)! This event will include individual metal TOUR MARKERS installed & the introduction of our mobile-friendly RACING LEGENDS TOUR APP! The highlight of the tour app are twenty audio recordings made by IMS Historian Donald Davidson and former IMS Announcer Bob Jenkins!

This fascinating self-guided RACING LEGENDS TOUR APP takes visitors to the resting places of racing legends from the Racing Capital of the World by using GPS coordinates on your their cell phone. From there you can read the bio of the person buried there and/or listen to the audio recordings! Custom-made metal TOUR MARKERS will have been installed at the graves of the four Speedway founders, Carl G. Fisher, James A. Allison, Frank W. Wheeler and Arthur Newby and dozens of others!

These TOUR MARKERS and the self-guided RACING LEGENDS TOUR APP are a continuation of projects planned with IRMA. In 2017, the Crown Hill Heritage Foundation partnered with IRMA to install the “Racing Legacy” historical sign on Section 13, down the hill from Speedway founder Carl G. Fisher’s private family mausoleum, and in 2018 they installed the “Final Finish Line,” a row of bricks a yard wide across the road with special bricks engraved with the names of the four IMS founders.

No Registration is necessary.
