INDIANAPOLIS — Pedestrians in downtown Indianapolis no doubt did a double take late Monday morning.
Yes, that was Mario Andretti at Meridian and Washington, up above the intersection in a bucket truck.
The 1969 Indianapolis 500 winner was helping install a Mario Andretti Drive street sign which commemorates his win, 50-years ago.
Andretti raced in 29 Indianapolis 500's from 1965 to 94, but 1969 was his only victory at the speedway.
At 79-years-old, Andretti remains an icon and fan favorite in the world of auto racing, and now has his own street.
