Congratulations to Caryn Sappelli, who is this week’s Andretti Autosport Fan of the Week! Caryn lists IZOD IndyCar Series driver and the Mayor of Hinchtown, James Hinchcliffe, as her favorite Andretti Autosport driver for his positive attitude and sense of humor.
Growing up around racing enthusiasts, Sappelli instantly started following the IZOD IndyCar Series, Formula 1 and vintage racing. Sappelli has had many racing memories, but her fondest memory was when she attended her first Indianapolis 500. “The excitement of attending my first Indy 500 race was incredible and it was such a thrilling experience,” said Sappelli.
Sappelli has been a fan of the Andrettis ever since she started following racing. “Andretti is a legend in racing; I’m inspired by Mario’s life story,” said Sappelli. “I love that there are three generations involved and that they maintain a stable of top drivers.”
As the team prepares for the 97th running of the Indianapolis 500, Sappelli is anxious to watch all five Andretti drivers take to the famed 2.5-mile oval. Live qualifying coverage starts Saturday, May 18 on NBC Sports Network at 11 a.m.
