Watch How Jim Nabors Is A Tradition At Indy 500 Since 1972

The biggest spectacle in all of motorsports is The Indianapolis 500. If you’re there experiencing it, you would know that no words can describe what it’s like.

Even before the green flag drops to start the 500 mile race of the greatest drivers in the world, there’s just the feel of being there.

And right before the start, there’s been a tradition that dates back to 1972. And that is Jim Nabors singing ‘Back Home Again In Indiana’.

But now, it’s been confirmed that this year’s edition of the ’500′ will mark the last time that he’ll sing the song live at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The 83-year-old Nabors, who now lives in Hawaii, has cited his health as the reason behind his decision.

Here’s a video of the start of last years Indy 500 featuring Jim Nabors singing the song:
