Indianapolis - The longtime voice of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is being laid to rest Monday.

Tom Carnegie was the public address announcer for more than 60 years. He died Friday at the age of 91. His family held a private funeral Monday.

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway will hold a public memorial Tuesday for the late public address announcer.

The service is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. at the Hall of Fame Museum. It is open to the public and will be streamed live on the Internet at http://www.livestream.com/indianapolismotorspeedway.

Friends and colleagues of Carnegie will share their memories and stories. A special area in the museum will be set aside through Feb. 28 to celebrate Carnegie's life. Fans will be able to leave cards, notes and other tributes in this area of the museum over the next two weeks.

Carnegie worked at the speedway from 1946-2006 and called many of the most memorable moments in track history.
