Marco Andretti As Indiana Jones

IndyCar driver Marco Andretti was able to wear his Indiana Jones firesuit again at the ABC Supply/A.J. Foyt 225 race at the Milwaukee Mile on June 1st. He has to wear it as part of the sponsorship agreement with Lucasfilm and Blockbuster that advertises the new Indiana Jones film. Marco looks cute in it, although one does expect to hear him say “trick-or-treat” while holding out a candy sack.

The suit hasn’t given him any blockbuster climax yet, but Marco did cause some gasp-inspiring action when he was involved in a collision with Ed Carpenter that made his car into a ramp to launch Vitor Meira into the air. Marco’s assessment of the situation was “I just carried too much speed into the corner, and I had dirty air in front of me. I lost the front end and went up into him.”

I think it would have been better if he worked at least a mention of escaping from evil Nazis into the explanation.

For the rest of us, a good fashion choice would be the t-shirt that relative and fellow racer John Andretti wore at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway that said “I wanna be Marco Andretti”.
