The NTT IndyCar Series announced on Tuesday that Jim Cornelison, who is best known for singing Back Home Again In Indiana ahead of the Indianapolis 500 will sing the Star Spangled Banner ahead of the Gallagher Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway which takes place on July 30.

Speaking about the news, J Douglas Boles, President of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway said:

“The national anthem is an integral, historic part of our pre-race pageantry and tradition. “As we welcome the NTT INDYCAR SERIES back to IMS for another race on the road course, it’s fitting that Jim, who plays such a pivotal role in one of our Indianapolis 500 pre-race traditions, is also back at the Racing Capital of the World performing for our fans at the track and those watching on NBC.”
