Donald Davidson has officially been IMS Historian since 1998, but in reality, he has been the foremost authority on Indianapolis Motor Speedway history since arriving at the track in May 1964.
Gifted with what is known as a “selective retentive easy access” memory, Donald possesses an incredible ability to recall even the most minute statistics, facts and trivia about Indianapolis 500 drivers, teams and team owners, and its many other colorful personalities.
A frequent author, television and radio commentator, Donald was inducted into the IMS Hall of Fame in 2010, the Indiana Broadcast Pioneers Hall of Fame in 2013, he was awarded the “Sagamore of the Wabash,” Indiana’s highest civilian honor, in 2016, and entered the USAC Hall of Fame in 2017.
Davidson will speak at the Prop on Wednesday, June 19 at noon. For reservations please visit www.thepropylaeum.org/upcomingevents or call 317-638-7881 x4.
