Catching Up With … Group 1001 CEO and President Dan Towriss

Michael Andretti recently added a one-time college baseball pitcher to the ownership group of his large motorsports empire, but this was no ordinary former athlete. I’m very involved in the business side, and Michael and I talk multiple times a week. Question: I understand that your wife, Cassidy, has a strong connection to INDYCAR and has been a longtime fan. That’s what kicked everything off, and three days after the race Michael called me to say he wanted Zach back on his team as he had grown up (with that team in the junior categories). Question: How much of your work time each week is focused on motorsports?. I think the plan with Andretti Global is to be in every major motorsport series on the planet, so there are a lot of things happening, and we’re in a lot of series in addition to INDYCAR. Question: It would seem there’s a lot to keep up with. We have about 100 guests coming in, and they’re excited about the race.
