Remembering broadcasting icon Bob Jenkins with IndyCar’s Jake Query

August 10, 2021

On today's episode Charlie is joined by the IndyCar Radio Network's Jake Query to honor and remember late motorsports broadcaster Bob Jenkins. Jenkins passed away on Monday at 73-years-old following a battle with brain cancer, and an outpouring of tributes have followed in the past 24-hours from around the racing world. Jenkins' broadcasting career began with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Radio Network in 1979, and he quickly rose to the lead anchor for NASCAR on ESPN from '79 to 2000. Locally, Jenkins' role as the radio voice of Indianapolis 500 from 1990 to 1998 is highlighted by the 1992 finish -- still the closest in 500 history.
