Petrolicious Shop Celebrates Mario Andretti’s 1969 Indy 500 Victory
Mario Andretti needs no introduction. He is perhaps the most well-known name in racing, has been an icon of motorsport and American culture for five decades. He is one of only two drivers to have won races in Formula One, IndyCar, World Sportscar Championship and NASCAR, and is the only person to have won races in 5 different decades. That is a resume that will likely never be equaled in the modern era.
Curb is celebrating the 50th anniversary of motorsport’s most notorious racer’s win at the 1969 Indy 500, which launched his legendary career spanning five decades with a series of prints and tees. You can select from the two designs, the Pre-Grid, or the one emblazoned with Andretti’s famous quote about control.
Curb’s approach to art, design, and typography reflects the playful and optimistic feeling of the 60s and 70s racing. Period correct typefaces, graphic style, and color choices applied to quality materials with the attention to detail.
They have also created a Limited Edition of 500 Official Mario Andretti Indy 500 50th Anniversary Celebration prints. These posters feature the car that took Mario to victory that incredible day. Each print is 18″x24″ on acid-free archival paper with a gold metallic finish. You might not be able to drive like Andretti, but with this poster on your wall, you can at least feel like a champion.
