Congratulations to Lisa Jensen, who is this week’s Andretti Autosport Fan of the Week! Lisa lists IZOD IndyCar Series driver Marco Andretti as her favorite Andretti Autosport driver. Jensen appreciates how Andretti is handling the pressure of his iconic heritage and how he is quickly developing and maturing on the track.
Jensen has always been a fan of the legendary racing family. She thinks the entire Andretti family represents a tradition of excellence and they each display a commitment to success on and off the track. The Andretti name holds a special place in the Jensen household. Lisa’s husband, John, proposed to his wife 11 years ago at the Andretti Winery in Napa, Calif. “Mario got to see the ring before I did! The Andrettis made us feel like family that night,” said Jensen.
At the 2012 IZOD IndyCar Series Championship in Fontana, Calif., Jensen had the opportunity to stand on the grid before the race, making that her favorite racing memory to date. “Being there that day was incredible, seeing the joy and celebrating with a team that had worked so hard all year was one of the best experiences,” Jensen comments. “Michael Andretti may be a great driver, but he’s an even better manager and businessman.”
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.
