MONTEREY, California – A night of heavy drinking and game of truth or dare between Marco Andretti and the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca management team ended with the third generation driver getting Laguna Seca’s famed turn 2 renamed from the ‘Andretti Hairpin’ to the ‘Marco Andretti Hairpin’. “All I had to do was stuff an entire bag of Hostess Mini Frosted Donettes in my mouth without puking”, said a smiling Marco, “But that idiot Steve in corporate didn’t think I could do it. Well the new ‘Marco Andretti Hairpin’ sign at turn 2 will show all the haters who the best Andretti is. In your face dad!”
A ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for Saturday just prior to qualifying when the NTT Indycar Series visits in September.
