This photo is incredible.
One of my favorite memories of Mario is of his back to back USAC Sprint Car wins at Oswego Speedway in 1966 and 1967. Two years ago Mario was in Syracuse to sign autographs at an American League Hockey game. The hockey game was in progress but all 10,000 fans were in line to meet Mario. A perfect gentleman.
MARIO IS THE BEST THING TO EVER HAPPEN TO AUTO RACING! AS A DRIVER ,ONE OF THE BEST IF NOT THE BEST EVER!AS AN AMBASSADOR FOR THE SPORT, HE HAS NO EQUAL.DONALD YOU SAID IT SO WELL IN FEW WORDS; THANKS!
Let me know what you think?
