MARIO ANDRETTI’S 1993 PHOENIX-WINNING CAR HEADLINES EARLY COMMITMENTS FOR 25-YEAR CELEBRATION AT PHOENIX GRAND PRIX

2/10/18
The Phoenix Grand Prix at ISM Raceway on Saturday, April 7 will feature the triumphant return of Mario Andretti’s No. 6 Kmart/Texaco-Havoline Lola/Ford – the same car he piloted to Victory Lane in the final win of his illustrious career – on April 4, 1993 here in Phoenix at ISM Raceway.    

The win at Phoenix  was  Andretti’s first in the 1990s, as he became the only IndyCar driver to record victories in four different decades.  This historically significant race winning car for Mario Andretti is the first of many amazing cars and personalities that will be gathered to celebrate Mario’s final win 25 years later at the Phoenix Grand Prix.  

“We are honored to be able to host this celebration for Mario Andretti’s final win,” said ISM Raceway President Bryan R. Sperber.  “To have his race winning car return to phoenix for the first time since winning 25 years ago will make this celebration at ISM raceway even more special.”  

As part of the lead-up to the 25th anniversary celebration, ISM Raceway, the Verizon IndyCar series and Classic Racing Times are working together to honor the cars and drivers from the 1993 race.  That star-studded field consisted of some of the most successful open-wheel drivers of that era, including Al Unser Jr., Emerson Fittipaldi, Bobby Rahal, Arie Luyendyk, Paul Tracy, Robby Gordon, Eddie Cheever Jr., Scott Pruett and Jimmy Vassar.

Tickets for the 2018 Phoenix Grand Prix on April 7 at ISM Raceway are available by calling 866-407-RACE (7223) or by visiting www.ISMRaceway.com.
