Mario Andretti Visits Chesterfield Grand Opening

Richmond’s WRIC-TV 8News station came out to Virginia Tire & Auto of Chesterfield for our Grand Opening on April 26.

CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WRIC) — Mario Andretti visited Virginia Tire & Auto of Chesterfield for its Grand Opening Ceremony while also holding a meet and greet with fans.

“No matter where I go for some reason we find race fans,” said Andretti. “That always makes it feel very good.”

Andretti, 79, signed autographs and took photos with a big smile while meeting people from all across Central Virginia.

Some fans even had Andretti sign the dashboard of their cars, like Jim Marr.

“It was really kind of exciting,” said Marr. “Nice to have a real celebrity and race car driver come out.”

“It’s always nice,” adds Andretti. “It’s a real compliment to have fans come around…they all have a little story to tell and we love race fans as you can imagine.”
