Announcer Gary Lindall a legend at Toledo Speedway

Posted: Updated:

Often imitated, never duplicated.  There's only one Gary Lindall.

The voice of Toledo Speedway says his signature catchphrase "Look Out!" just sort of happened.

"The first time the two cars came close, I yelled ‘look out'", he says.  "I went ‘I think I've got something'."

Lindall has been calling races for 35 years, and in doing so he's established himself as one of the best announcers in the business.  He's been working at Toledo Speedway for 15 years, and has become arguably more popular than most of the drivers.

In 2004, Lindal was inducted into the Michigan Motor Sports Hall of Fame, which he considered a dream come true.

"I was just a fan in the stands at one time," he says.  "To have all the achievement and meet all the people, never did I ever think it would be like this."
