About Don Kay
                                                                                                                                                                                                     is the fastest hour in motorsports and is hosted by Don Kay. The show features interviews with the best drivers, car owners, team members, and sponsors from all forms of auto racing - starting with the Indy Racing Series and the crown jewel of racing...the Indianapolis 500. 

Producer and host for, Don Kay remembers attending the short track races in the Chicago area as a kid, Soldiers Field, O'Hare Raceway, and Blue Island Speedway. In 1959 and 1960, he went to a theater to watch the Indy 500 on closed circuit and had no interest. However, after being convinced to go to Indy in 1963 and watching the cars come out of turn 4 for the start first hand, he was hooked.

After spending what was, at the time, a lot of money to follow the circuit, it occurred to Don that a television show would be a way of going to the races and get paid at the same time. He started off in 1968 and quickly got carried away. Instead of just following the Indy Cars, he also started going to NASCAR races, before it even became popular. From there he started going to Formula 1, then Drag Racing, eventually working for an Indy Car team in 1982 and starting a radio program.

After moving back to Indy, to work with another Indy car team, Don Kay started once again after the show's 5 year hiatus. Since then, the show has grown not only in Indy, but to have a worldwide following.
