Congratulations to Susan Scott, who is this week’s Andretti Autosport Fan of the Week! Susan lists IZOD IndyCar Series driver Marco Andretti as her favorite Andretti Autosport driver.
Scott has been a lifelong race fan who traces her love for the sport back to her first Indianapolis 500 experience when she was a little girl. She was immediately enamored with open-wheel racing and started to closely watching her first favorite driver, Michael Andretti, during his days with CART.
In 2011, Scott watched Marco Andretti win his second career race at Iowa Speedway in the Iowa Corn Indy 250, making that her fondest racing memory to date. “It was Marco's win at Iowa that really won me over as a fan,” said Scott. “That was such a great race. I think my brother and I (and the whole crowd) were up out of our seats for the last 20 or so laps. It was a great race and he just hung on, fought for it, and won!”
Even though Scott is a loyal (Marco) Andretti fan, she appreciates all of the Andretti Autosport drivers and wants to see the team on top of the podium each weekend. “If there is any rivalry between the teammates, it seems to only be the best type – to push each other to be better,” comments Scott. “I’ve enjoyed seeing the resurgence of the Andretti Autosport team throughout the years and I’m looking forward to an Andretti win this weekend!”
Be sure to watch all of the Iowa Corn Indy 250 action on Sunday, June 23 at 2:30 p.m. ET on ABC. 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!
