    Jim Amstutz was a good friend of my wife and I. We first met him as a raucous hockey fan at Memorial Coliseum in 1976. He became known from there to Bill Lipkey who maintained an office in the coliseum. Lipkey gave Jim his start in race announcing at Kokomo and he announced at many other tracks until his death. We will miss Jim. His death was a shock. We applaud his zest for life and his fine accomplishments.
