The legendary pipes of Jim Cornelison will be ringing throughout IMS once again next May. 

Indianapolis Motor Speedway announced the singer will return to the mic again in 2019 on Thursday. 

From indianapolismotorspeedway.com:

“Jim has become a familiar, anticipated voice for Indianapolis 500 and IndyCar Series fans in just two years, so we’re thrilled he’s back with us on Race Day and joining in on the entire countdown to the Indy 500,” IMS President J. Douglas Boles said. “Everyone loves Jim and his passion for IMS and IndyCar, and his stirring pre-race performances are becoming a Month of May highlight for everyone.” 

Cornelison is known to sports fans everywhere as the powerful voice behind “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Chicago Blackhawks’ home games. He also has captivated Indianapolis 500 fans and viewers for the last two years, generating widespread praise and social media applause since taking the “Back Home Again in Indiana” mantle in May 2017."

From Jim Nabors to Jim Cornelison, "Back Home Again In Indiana" at The Greatest Spectacle In Racing is in good hands.
