Congratulations to Rick Abbott who is this week’s Andretti Autosport Fan of the Week! Rick lists IZOD IndyCar Series driver and 2013 ESPY’s ‘Best Driver’ winner, Ryan Hunter-Reay as his favorite Andretti Autosport driver.
Abbott has been an open-wheel racing fan since the early 60’s when he attended his first Indianapolis 500 around the historic 2.5-mile oval. “The best memory is being in the stands every year at the Indy 500 with my family and friends and still getting goosebumps when the green flag waves,” said Abbott.
Abbott’s early connection with open-wheel racing started by watching and following Mario Andretti’s career. Since then, Abbott has paid close attention to all four of the Andretti Autosport drivers. “Seeing an Andretti driver win the championship again would make for a great season,” said Abbott.
Thank you to everyone who submitted a form to become the Andretti Autosport Fan of the Week. Please check back next week as we select another winner.
As always, thanks for your amazing support!
