So I was chatting with Mario Andretti yesterday...
« on: March 14, 2016, 09:11:20 AM »
I told him the first race I attended was Sebring 1970.  He said: "that was a good one!"

My buddy Pete had just one job. And he fucked it up.



You've only got to spend 5 minutes on sebringfans.com to realize that, while many of them may be knowledgeable fans, this race is mostly a drinking binge with some noisy cars in the background... I'm kind of amazed (and disappointed) that track management doesn't do anything to try and go a bit more upmarket.--some FerrariChat.com douchebag

I also got some photos of another childhood racing hero. He picked a booger and wiped it on the side of the golf cart as he passed by.

Pete redeemed himself.  Here I am showing Mario last year's photo.  "I waited 45 years to get a photo with you and had to wait another year to get a good one."

Haha, I've never seen someone so angry about seeing Mario Andretti. I like to think he's some former racing nemesis of Mario from the 60's. "I'll get you one day Andretti!"
