This May, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and IMS Museum is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Mario Andretti’s winning of the 1969 Indianapolis 500 (IndyStar article ), (Autosport article). The win came in a back-up to the car.

He led 116 of the 200 laps to score the most prestigious win of his IndyCar career in Andy Granatelli’s STP-sponsored Clint Brawner-designed Hawk III-Ford. Hemmings Daily has a great article, entitled, Fifty years ago, Mario Andretti scored his first – and only official – Indianapolis 500 win” describes Mario’s interesting month of May in 1969.



I created two originals commemorating Mario’s “overcoming the odds” 1969 Indy 500 win.

The IMS Museum’s exhibit celebrating the 50th anniversary of Mario Andretti’s 1969 wining of the Indianapolis 500 will feature Son of Indy’s “Mario’s ’69 Winner” on aluminum panel. The exhibit is open May 1st to November 10th, 2019.
