MagnaFlow’s new video highlights the life of longtime MagnaFlow Ambassador and world-renowned racing legend, Mario Andretti, following the 50th anniversary of his first Indianapolis 500 victory.
Oceanside, Calif. (April, 2019) – MagnaFlow has announced the release of its latest video spotlight, “The Sound of Passion,” which features MagnaFlow brand ambassador and racing legend Mario Andretti. The video allows viewers to join Andretti in his home as he recalls his early childhood years in Italy, beginning with the Italian Grand Prix at Monza. He recalls vividly the sound of the Formula One engines and how experiencing the race firsthand sparked his fascination with racing, ultimately leading to one of the most successful racing careers the world would ever see.
Throughout the course of his racing career, which lasted nearly five decades, Andretti established his dominance as a driver in everything from midget cars to Formula One, taking the checkered flag a staggering 111 times and solidifying his legacy as one of the most decorated drivers of all time. A true racing enthusiast, Andretti’s interest was not limited to one type of racing and he competed at a high level in every form of racing he dedicated himself to. His success led to him being named “Driver of the Year” in three different decades (the 1960s, 70s and 80s), “Driver of the Quarter Century” in the 90s and the Associated Press named him “Driver of the Century” in January, 2000.
Andretti has served as an ambassador and friend to MagnaFlow for over 17 years and, while his success as a driver is unparalleled, it was his pure passion for the sport that led MagnaFlow to first partner with Mario. Despite retiring from active competition over two decades ago, Mario’s commitment to the automotive world is unwavering and MagnaFlow is humbled to work with an individual who has left an undeniable impact on the sport and set the precedent for those who follow in his footsteps.
