Congratulations to Scott Miller who is this week’s Andretti Autosport Fan of the Week! Scott lists IZOD IndyCar Series driver Ryan Hunter-Reay as his favorite Andretti Autosport driver.
Miller has been following Ryan Hunter-Reay’s career for the past few years. He appreciates his loyalty to his fans and admires how Hunter-Reay carries himself off the track. Miller grew up near Mario (Andretti) and Mario’s brother, Aldo. Fascinated with racing at an early age, Miller followed Mario’s career and attended as many races as possible. “My favorite racing memory was watching Mario win the 1969 Indianapolis 500, it was an incredible experience,” said Miller. “I remember watching him place second in the 1981 Indianapolis 500 and I still believe he should have won!”
Miller is thankful for the work our sister company, Andretti Sports Marketing, has done to revive races. “Even though the Andretti name means ‘racing’ to so many people, it’s great to see them get involved in places like Milwaukee where it looked like the race wasn’t going to happen anymore,” comments Miller. “The name (Andretti) completely represents areas of racing that mean a lot to me and many other fans!”
We are very excited to announce that the 2012 IZOD IndyCar Series Champion, Ryan Hunter-Reay has been nominated for a 2013 ESPY award in the ‘Best Driver’ category! Voting for the ESPYS is now open, so cast your votes here: http://x.co/1Foq5.
