Congratulations to Stephanie Van Tieghem who is this week’s Andretti Autosport Fan of the Week! Stephanie lists IZOD IndyCar Series driver Marco Andretti as her favorite Andretti Autosport driver.
Stephanie grew up around racing in Charlotte, N.C., and took several class field trips to Charlotte Motor Speedway as a kid. She became an IndyCar fan in 2008, when watching her first race on TV. “I was immediately hooked. I fell in love with IndyCar then and haven't looked back,” said Tieghem. “I go to at least one IndyCar race a year.”
Her favorite racing memory was when she made her first appearance at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Carb Day in 2011. The memory of “being in the track and hearing an Indy car for the first time ever in-person still gives me chills.”
This May, Stephanie predicts Marco to bring home the coveted Borg-Warner Trophy at the Indianapolis 500, and like all of us here at Andretti Autosport, she is cheering for one of our drivers to bring home the IZOD IndyCar Series Championship at the end of the season!
The 97th running of the Indianapolis 500 starts today, Saturday May 11th. Be sure to follow us on Twitter, @FollowAndretti for all things Andretti Autosport during the month of May!
