2022 Writers’ Roundtable, Vol. 40: Marco Career Highlight?

Today’s question: Earlier this week, Marco Andretti was confirmed to compete next year in his 18th Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge. Unfortunately, Marco couldn’t hold back Sam Hornish Jr., who after nearly crashing in Turn 3 on Lap 199 delivered one of the best final laps in race history. Had Sam not done so, imagine how Marco’s career would be thought of today. Andretti was out front consistently, finding the lead 10 different times for 31 laps. Paul Kelly: The cruelty of the “Month of August” 2020 sticks out to me the most when thinking about Marco Andretti’s career. But it didn’t happen, and the pressure on Marco to deliver at Indy ratcheted every year. It would be great for Marco, the Andretti family and global motorsports.
