Congratulations to Jennifer Switz, who is this week’s Andretti Autosport Fan of the Week! Jennifer lists IZOD IndyCar Series driver, Marco Andretti, as her favorite Andretti Autosport driver because of his competitiveness and character on and off the track.
Jennifer and her family have been life long fans of the Andretti’s. “They are strong, hard driven and competitive in all racing genres. They are genuine with their fans,” said Switz. “I have and will always be an Andretti fan!”
Growing up in Indiana and now living in California, Jennifer still keeps to her Indianapolis 500 traditions. “We will be set from the start of the race festivities to the checkered flag and everyone knows NOT to call during that time,” said Switz. “We wouldn't answer anyway, because the Indy 500 to us is what the Super Bowl is to others.”
Jennifer’s fondest racing memory dates back to Michael Andretti’s last race in Long Beach, Calif., in 2002. “I was at Turn 9 yelling and cheering Michael to victory along with the rest of the crowd,” says Switz. “I couldn't talk for two weeks because I was cheering him (Michael) on so much.”
Thank you to everyone who submitted a form to become the Andretti Autosport Fan of the Week. Please check back next Friday as we select another winner!
As always, thanks for your amazing support.
