EPISODE SUMMARY

1991 was a great year for the Newman-Haas Racing Team. Our driver, Michael Andretti, had a magnificent season — 8 race wins, 8 pole positions and nearly 1,000 laps led.

The 1991 season-ending race was held at Laguna Seca, California. Mike won the pole position, the Marlboro Challenge and lead every lap of the race on Sunday to clinch the PPG Indy Car Championship.

In this episode, I’ll talk about Michael and Mario Andretti — the first father-son Indy Car Team and pay tribute to my NHR teammates, who made it all possible.
