Race fans, the month of May is almost here! In fact, tomorrow marks the first open test on the oval at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Like always, celebrations of the race’s history will take place throughout the month.
In particular, there is already one particular celebration that has the racing community excited.
As you may have heard, IMS is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Mario Andretti’s 1969 victory in the race.
Today, Open-Wheels would like to announce that we are also kicking off one of our own celebrations. During the month of May, we will release a “Memories with Mario” feature in anticipation of the 103rd running of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
Whether it’s on-track stories, encounters at the track with Mario, or other memorable meetings, we want to hear them all – from you, the fans!
These submissions will have a chance to be featured in our special tribute to Mario.
Make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter so that you get all the latest tributes to Mario Andretti. As always, we will have continued in-depth coverage of the NTT IndyCar Series as well.
Happy 50th anniversary, Mario!
