Behind the Bricks: The IMS Public Address system

A track as large as Indianapolis Motor Speedway needs an equally-large sound system, and the public address system at IMS does not disappoint!

The IMS PA system is one of the largest sound systems in the world. It’s operated out of a temperature-controlled room in an undisclosed location that’s off-limits to fans.

On this episode of Behind the Bricks, IMS President Doug Boles offers race fans a never-before-seen look at the central location of Public Address and some of the old-school technology still being used today.

Will Curry, facility and event audiovisual engineer at IMS, stopped by Daybreak on Friday to talk about the PA system, his role on race day, and why the music selection at IMS has improved over the last few years.
