Mario Andretti Headlines IZOD Legends of IndyCar at Infineon
Race fans will have access to arguably the biggest name in the history of open-wheel racing at the Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma on Sunday, Aug. 22.

Mario Andretti will headline the IZOD Legends of IndyCar ticket package at Infineon Raceway, but it doesn’t stop there. Andretti will be joined by Al Unser Jr., Rick Mears and Johnny Rutherford in this star-studded package.

Combined, these four drivers have won the Indianapolis 500 10 times, and they will be available at the Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma in August. Andretti headlines the quartet; he is the only driver in history to win the Indianapolis 500, Daytona 500 and Formula One world championship. In fact, no American has won a Formula One race since Andretti’s victory in the 1978 Dutch Grand Prix.

Race fans will have access to Andretti through the IZOD Legends of IndyCar ticket package, which includes a reserved ticket to the big race on Sunday, Aug. 22, garage and pit/pre-race pass, plus access to an exclusive Q&A session with Andretti, Unser Jr., Mears and Rutherford on Sunday morning. All this for just $99.

“One of the great strengths of the IZOD IndyCar® Series is the legacy of the Indianapolis 500 and the legendary drivers who have competed and won on that circuit,” said Steve Page, president and general manager of Infineon Raceway. “This package offers a terrific convergence of the Indy tradition with the excitement and stars of today’s racing.  It’s a wonderful opportunity for our fans to experience both at one event.”

Mears won the Indianapolis 500 four times, while Rutherford won the event three times. Unser Jr., meanwhile, took the checkers in Indianapolis twice.

This should make for a once-in-a-lifetime experience for open-wheel race fans, who will be treated to what should be a very entertaining Q&A session just hours before the green flag is dropped on the Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma on Sunday, Aug. 22.
