The Indianapolis 500 won’t be run today (rescheduled in light of the coronavirus pandemic for August 23). But the absence of the race today only makes us more nostalgic for the race.
Thus the Video of the Day: The final time that Jim Nabors sang Back Home Again in Indiana, which he did for 32 years, becoming a part of the Indy legend.
Actually, the title of the song is (Back Home Again in) Indiana, and it was written in 1917 by James Hanley and Ballard MacDonald. The song became part of Indy 500 lore in 1946, with Nabors performing it from 1971-2014, with the Purdue University marching band providing the music.
