more history "Mr. 500" passes Andy Granatelli

Post by dieseldr on December 31st 2013, 6:07 pm

On hemmings online daily blog. An interesting story/ bio of the granatellis, some of the races, the teams, affiliation with Petty's. Another piece of history gone in '13. Some interesting business ventures, promotions, ....... and an explanation of what STP really stands for. A flambouyant feller to say the least.

Yeah, I read that yesterday. A real shame as Andy was one of 'the' guys for Indy for so many years. Good guy too from what I have read. The STP Turbine cars were soooooooooooooo cool. Wish they would have won Indy.

Later,

Lee
