Meeting Mario Andretti in Ashburn With Slim

There is likely no more famous race car driver than Mario Andretti.  The Andretti family is the royal family of racing.

Below is my father with the huge Firestone tire with Mario Andretti in the middle of it at the Ashburn Virgina Tire and Auto

Below is my father, Mario Andretti and me.  Mario was very nice to me and my father.  He signed photographs and my Corvette sweatshirt that I will frame.  I told him how bummed I was when his grandson Marco lost by 0.0635 of a second to Sam Hornish Jr. in the second closest finish in Indy history.  We met Steve Ferry there as well and it was a great day meeting Mario Andretti!
