Savoy Automobile Museum is excited to announce that on Friday, August 5, 2022, former Indy 500 announcer, Paul Page, will be at the museum for a special reception at 5:30 pm, followed by a lecture at 7:00 pm, moderated by Ken Gross, Savoy Automobile Museum Guest Curator.
Page will talk about a wide range of sporting events – from the ill-fated 1973 race to his insightful and sensitive interviews with iconic drivers, including four-time winner A.J. Foyt, who is renowned for being, as Paul puts it, “intimidating.” Paul will also describe many intriguing episodes, including an incident that unfolded at Foyt’s Texas ranch where Paul was a houseguest — a story that illustrates the legendary tough driver’s compassionate side.
He will also pay tribute to Sid Collins, his mentor. During the early 1950s, Collins developed a riveting multi-announcer broadcasting concept for IMS Radio Network and convinced long-time Speedway owner Tony Hulman of its merit. In his book, Page praises Hulman for his kindness while he celebrates the inclusive spirit of the Indy 500: “It’s a place for everyone: the wealthiest sponsors, owners, and stars; the middle-class ticket holders, and the blue-collar fans in the field.” Ken Gross will join Paul on stage to moderate the presentation. “I listened to Sid Collins and Paul Page for years,” says Ken. “It’s an honor and a thrill to be here with a living legend.”
Hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will be available in the Savoy Café during the reception. Tickets to both the reception and lecture are available at www.SavoyMuseum.org
. Included is admission to the museum, which will remain open from 10:00 am - 9:00 pm.
