Watch the Video – an Evening with Mario Andretti
A few months ago, it was my particular privilege to host a fireside chat and interview with the incomparable Mario Andretti at the World of Speed Motorsports Museum in Wilsonville, Oregon. This is a marvelous automotive museum proximus to Portland, and if you’ve not yet been, then you must visit. It’s an engaging property, well assembled and displayed, its current exhibit “Mario Andretti: Racing Royalty” displaying 11 of Mario’s significant racing cars. The museum organized an evening attended by 350 or so people, featuring and dedicated to The Man, as its annual fundraiser, and I’m flattered that they asked me to join Mario on stage for an evening of talking about his life, family, and remarkable career (and some wicked fun storytelling).
