In 2014, nearly 11 million people tuned in to the race that is broadcast worldwide.

More than 400 affiliate IMS Radio Network radio stations located throughout the United States
and Canada will broadcast live Race Day coverage of the Indianapolis 500 at 11 a.m. Sunday,  
with a pre-race show, followed by the race broadcast at 12 p.m.

The radio network's Indianapolis 500 coverage also will be broadcast live on
XM Satellite Radio channel 209 and
SIRIUS channel 216

Many of the local radio stations that broadcast the IMS Radio Network offer online streams,
meaning listeners do not have to be in their broadcast range to tune in. 94.1 FM in Calcium,
New York, 94.5 FM in Birmingham, Alabama and 95.3 FM in Clinton, Missouri all offer online

Listeners can also tune in using
shortwave radios via the LeSea Broadcasting Network, and
those in the military can listen through the
American Forces Radio Network.

All IndyCar races can be listened to on the web at

After two years as IMS Radio Network “chief announcer”
Paul Page has decided it was time to call it quits. The
veteran announcer came back in 2014 for a second stint
in that role as he previously was the “chief announcer” for
the network from 1977-1987. From there, he’d become
the head announcer for ABCs IndyCar coverage before
moving into the same role on the NHRA side.

But, IndyCar got him back in 2014 which was a very
popular move. Unfortunately, he didn’t want to stay long as
he decided last year was it.

The IMS Radio Network hired
Mark Jaynes in that role
as the Beech Grove, Indiana resident becomes the sixth
“voice of the 500.”

The 52-year old joined the network in 1996 and has been
a regular ever since. He was most recently the lead
announcer for all the Indy Lights races and served on the
Verizon IndyCar Series broadcast in a fill-in role in the
booth on practice and/or qualifying days.

Joining Jaynes on the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series
broadcasts broadcasts will be Davey Hamilton who
serves as the driver analyst, Jake Query, Nick Yeoman,
Michael Young, Dave Furst, Katie Hargitt and Rob
Sid Collins ..... Mark Jaynes
Former Voice of the 500’s:

Sid Collins (1952–1976)
Paul Page (1977–1987)
Lou Palmer (1988–1989)
Bob Jenkins (1990–1998)
Mike King (1999–2013)
Paul Page (2014–2015)
