Congratulations to Chad Higley who is this week’s Andretti Autosport Fan of the Week! Chad lists IZOD IndyCar Series driver James Hinchcliffe as his favorite Andretti Autosport driver. Hinchcliffe is the only three-time winner this season and seventh different winner through 10 of 19 races.
Higley attended is first Indianapolis 500 in 1987 and watched Al Unser, Sr. take home the coveted Borg-Warner Trophy. The 71st running of the Indianapolis 500 marked Higley’s most memorable experience in open-wheel racing, not only because he witnessed Al Unser’s fourth victory around the 2.5-mile oval, but also because he met Mario Andretti.
During the 2012 Milwaukee IndyFest, Higley had the opportunity to meet all the IZOD IndyCar Series drivers during their autograph session in the INDYCAR Fan Village. “Thanks to IndyFest, I was able to meet all my favorite drivers,” said Higley. “It’s moments like the autograph sessions when you get to interact with the drivers that make me love IndyCar.”
Thank you to everyone who submitted a form to become the Andretti Autosport Fan of the Week. Be sure to tune-in and watch the Pocono INDYCAR 400 this Sunday, July 7 at 12 p.m. ET on ABC. Please check back next Friday as we select another winner!
As always, thank you for your amazing support.
