BRAZIL, Ind. (WTHI) - A local club got a great lesson in racing history on Wednesday and it was all thanks to a very special guest.

Donald Davidson is a historian at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

He took the time to speak to members of the Brazil Rotary Club at a lunch meeting.

He touched on several parts of the 110-year history of the track.

They include the speedway's connection to the Terre Haute area, with the Hulman family.

He said he is honored to be able to travel the Hoosier state and tell people the history of the speedway.

"We just want to spread the word, and say if you go to the track, great...but if you've ever been, go, and if you used to go and you stopped...start coming again," Davidson said.

Davidson said he used to travel with Tony Hulman to give talks about racing and the speedway.
