2024 Featured Guest

There isn’t a name more synonymous with speed than Mario Andretti, our 2024 featured guest for Breakfast at the Brickyard, presented by Midwestern Engineers, Inc.

His achievements became legendary: The world watched as he won the Daytona 500, the Indianapolis 500, and ultimately the Formula One World Championship, an unprecedented trifecta. No other race car driver has ever won all three titles. Mario took the checkered flag 111 times during his career – a career that stretched five decades and across six continents.

It wasn’t just the winning that made Mario a champion. It was the way he did it. Filled with a lifelong passion for the sport, he had an incredible drive to win and a competitive spirit. Off the track, he is admired for his great warmth, dignity, and class. Mario’s fans, and Indiana, love him.

Mario is one of motorsports’ greatest ambassadors and respected voices. We cannot wait to have him as our featured guest on May 18!
