Mario Andretti, Hawk-Ford, 1969, Indianapolis 500
From an original painting by famous motorsports artist Colin Carter. This high-end "dry-fit" type Jersey depicts this famous movement in racing history.
Racing legend Mario Andretti was always destined to win America's greatest race, and it came on his fifth attempt, racing his back up Hawk-Ford after wrecking his Lotus-Ford in an earlier practice run. Starting at No.2, he sailed past pole-sitter A.J. Foyt on the first turn to take the lead and held this for 116 of the 200 lap race. After his main competitors Ruby, McCluskey, and Foyt were forced to drop out, and in spite of almost hitting the wall on lap 150, Mario cruised to victory, two laps ahead of Dan Gurney at an average speed of 156.867 miles per hour.
