As I’m Super Impressed by this unique move…
Pretty Funny how Pumped I felt prior to Detroit’s Belle Isle first race Saturday morning after simply reading the ‘lil Blurb on Racer’com over Mikey A’s Andretti Autosport team, with the support of The dude’s longtime sponsor DHL taking up the initiative to adorn Ryan Hunter-Reay’s #28 Dallara-Honda with the Rainbow Flag on his car’s Sidepods and Aeroscreen for all of the IndyCar’s (three) races in June!
As reportedly this is the first time in IndyCar History that a Team has Supported Pride Month for the LGBTQ community, which I think is Fantastic! Although I’m not surprised that this “Outlandish” move would receive Criticism on Social Media. Since Oh My Gawd! A Rainbow Flag on the Sidepod of a racecar is such a Horrifying thing! Like imagine if Andretti Autosport had been really bold and just turned RHR’s racecar into a Giant Rainbow Flag motif covering the entire car, Gasp!
As My only complaint is that there aren’t more races in June for the car to be seen at, and I suddenly found myself rootin’ for Hunter-Reay to pull into Victory lane, Gasp! Even though he summarily Clouted the Wall during Saturday’s first race, at least the effort for Gay Pride got mentioned by Leigh Diffey on the TV Broadcast.
As Way to Go Mikey A’, Andretti Autosport and DHL!
