VIDEO: What it’s like to ride in an Indy car with Mario Andretti

It's a story you'll only see on ABC15 — and it's a story I'll never forget. (Watch video)

On Saturday, before the Desert Diamond West Valley Phoenix Grand Prix at Phoenix International Raceway, I had the honor of spending the afternoon with the only man in history to win a Daytona 500, Indy 500 and the Formula One World Championship, Mario Andretti — one of the greatest drivers to ever grab a steering wheel.

The G-forces? I never felt anything like it. I screamed like a little girl, but I don't think Mario heard me. Check out how I did in the above video.

Here's the good news: You can do it yourself! The Andretti Racing team offers 3-lap ride-alongs for just $99.99. For more information, go here or call 1-877-RACE-LAP (1-877-722-3527).
