2013 Indianapolis 500 champion Tony Kanaan called into the Hammer and Nigel Show Thursday afternoon to share an exciting announcement: Tony and his wife, Lauren will be the honorary chairs for this year’s Rev at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The event serves as the ceremonial start to the month of May and showcases the local food scene, while raising money for the Indiana University Health Foundation.
"I was quite honored when they invited me to be chair of Rev. It’s the biggest party we have at the speedway apart from victory lane at the end of the month. We have 63 local restaurants participating; you can taste every type of food and meet the drivers; we have live bands and best of all, it's all for charity. And of course, it is for IU Health, which is one of the biggest charities in town and we're trying to help them raise the funds they need to provide help and assistance to the people who need it the most
It's an enormous honor for me; it's a huge party at the Speedway, so I encourage everyone to come out and participate and say 'hello.'"
While VIP tickets to Rev 2019 are sold out, general admission tickets are $300 per person, and can be purchased at revindy.org.
Tony also took time to talk racing at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, his personal future in the sport, and driving for racing legend A.J. Foyt. Click the link below to hear Hammer and Nigel's full interview with Tony Kanaan:
