Artist: Colin Carter
This print is taken from an edition of 850 by world renowned artist Colin Carter. Racing legend Mario Andretti was always destined to win America’s greatest race, and it came on his fifth attempt, racing his back up Hawk-Ford after wrecking his Lotus-Ford in an earlier practice run. Staring at No 2, he sailed past pole sitter A.J.Foyt on the first turn to take the lead, and held this for 116 of the 200 lap race. After his main competitors Ruby, McCluskey and Foyt were forced to drop out, and in spite of almost hitting the wall on lap 150, Mario cruised to victory, two laps ahead of Dan Gurney at an average speed of 156.867 miles per hour. A limited edition of 850 signed and numbered prints signed by artist Colin Carter and Driver of the Century Mario Andretti.
