My sincerest sympathies go out to the whole family. I went through grade school with one of his daughters, Charlotte, so I have always felt I had a remote connection to him. I will never forget his voice. He WAS the 500 to me!
God bless you all. Peace be with you!

My deepest sympathy to the Carnegie family. I met Tom at the track in 2000 even though i have heard his voice for years. He will always be the Voice Of The Indianapolis 500.... May the family find peace in God at this sad time.

Toms voice was worth driving 1500 miles to listen to. Dad and I did it for 20 years. The finest voice in the business. You will be sadly missed.

Dear D.J. and the entire family of Tom Carnegie, please accept my sincerest sympathies on your -- and all of our -- loss. While I knew of Tom for many years because of his association with the Speedway, I didn't meet him personally until we moved to Indianapolis in 1984 to work for Bryant. Tom immediately became my friend and make me feel welcome in the racing community. Together, we worked on many Bryant Racing projects with drivers Chip Ganassi, Josele Garza, Johnnie Parsons, Rich Vogler and Stan Fox. We were a little, local team sponsorship with the Machinest Union, Jonathan Byrd and Ron Hemelgarn, and Tom always treated us as though we were one of the front runners. Tom also did many of our local Phil Hedback Bryant radio spots, and I also got him involved with our national Bryant radio and TV commercials we did with General Chuck Yeager. He was a wonderful man, a wonderful friend and will always be an icon in the history of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. God bless him and grant him rest. We shall think of him at the 100th anniversary of the 500 in May, and shall always remember him in the future.

My sincerest condolences to the Carnegie Family. Of the 61 years that Tom announced at the Speedway, I had the honor of being there on race day for 56 of his 61 years. Tom's voice is instilled in my memory forever,and I will sorely miss hearing him any more.

Nobody did it better than Tom Carnegie. He WAS the Indianapolis 500, as famous or more so than legendary Sid Collins. I've been going to the 500 since 1970. Opening day of time trials used to be as big as race day. The time trials were Tom's domain. What a booming, velvety smooth voice! My first "date" with my wife-to-be lasted 18 hours, as we drove to the time trials from Chicago and back the same day in 1977. RIP, Mr. Carnegie. You were the best.

My father a Engine Re-Builder from Detroit, The Motor City would listen to the race on the radio and later watch it on TV. No one said a word or disturbe Dad. With the newspaper in one hand and a pencil in the other. he made notes. Later he chartered a Bus. Beer,Snacks and a "Ticket" to the Race. Dad follwed the "THE RACE"
till he past away at "91".
