Paul Page to voice INDYCAR Radio in 2014 and Photos of TK/Borg Warner Presentation up at TSO
By Patrick Stephan
Paul Page has been confirmed as the "new" voice of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Radio Network. Page takes over the role recently vacated by Mike King who stepped aside to focus on his family and other business interests.
Page originally started with the radio network back in 1974 as a pit reporter. He took over the play by play duties from 1977 to 1987 before moving over to the TV side with ABC where he stayed until 2004. After that, Page did some other sports, including the X-games, the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog eating contest, and most notably NHRA Drag Racing through 2012.
Page also had a stint with NBC Sports, calling mostly auto racing racing from 1978 through 1987. Paul joined the Indy 500 radio broadcasts in 2009 and 2010 for some brief guest announcer spots.

Also note, Tony Kanaan's face was unveiled today on the Borg-Warner Trophy at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. We have photos of that event up already (thanks Eric) and should have a brief report on the festivities later this evening.
Ok, back with more later - trying to shake off this vacation and get back to work :)

I've had the opportunity to work with Mark and know he is the type of business owner we would welcome in the series." said Derrick Walker, President of Competition and Operations, INDYCAR.
Mark Olson (2008 driver and team owner from 2009 to present) states, "I am grateful to the leadership of INDYCAR for their absolute commitment to doing the right thing for both the sport, as well as for their team owners and their drivers. Speaking as both a fan and as a participant, INDYCAR is a great property and it's been a lifelong dream to play even a small part. I look forward to opportunities to work together in the future."
