Jack Arute was a fresh-faced 18-year-old just out of high school when he made his first trip to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. As a graduation present from his father, the two set out for the 1969 Indy 500. When he walked through the gates, it was everything he thought it would be: Gasoline Alley in front of him, and the yellow shirts blaring on their whistles to clear the way for the drivers passing through. He soaked it all in that day and took a hundred pictures. Arute realized that day just how special Indy was and how he wanted to somehow be a part of it. Arute eventually made that dream come true through his job as pit reporter for ABC Sports. From his initial fear of approaching A.J. Foyt in the garage as a cub reporter to watching Danica Patrick rewrite the role of women in motorsports when she became the first woman to lead a lap in the 89th running of the race and beyond, "Jackie" has seen it all. He now relates all of his greatest, funniest, and most meaningful stories in "Tales from the Indy 500".
