THE MARIO ANDRETTI RACING EXPERIENCE WHERE 10 LUCKY FUEL REWARDS® MEMBERS WITH GOLD+ STATUS WERE CHOSEN FOR A RIDE AROUND A REAL INDY TRACK ON A RACE-DAY WEEKEND WITH “DRIVER OF THE CENTURY” MARIO ANDRETTI
GEORGE BOWLING — Fuel Rewards® Member with Gold+ Status
George Bowling: I received a text from my son, and I called him. He had told me that he had a chance to ride in an Indy Car with Mario Andretti. And I was just like, “No way.”
AARON McNEIL — Fuel Rewards® Member with Gold+ Status
Aaron McNeil: And so, I clicked on it and I was like, “Are we serious?”
JIM WILLIAMS — Fuel Rewards® Member with Gold+ Status
Jim Williams: When you first take off (laughs) and you start moving very rapidly and start hitting these curves, and you think, “Oh, we’ll slow down a little bit,” and you don’t slow down, he speeds up! George Bowling: When you’re in that vehicle, the G’s (G-Force) that you pull and the pressure that you feel on your body going around in just those two laps...it was just an incredible experience. George Bowling: That was great!
MARIO ANDRETTI — Legendary Race Car Driver
Mario Andretti: To be able to give a passenger a good ride and show them what it’s all about, and you only get a lap and a half, and you figure that in a race you’d be doing 200 laps or something with another 25 cars around you! Aaron McNeil: Being a Fuel Rewards member with Gold+ Status at Shell is something I keep in mind. I don’t go to other stations. I recognize when I’m getting quality. Everybody that knows me knows I’m going to Shell whenever I need to fill up. That aspect of saving and the whole process is even better! Finding where the Shell stations are on the app, the convenience of being able to put in a four-digit code right at the pump, get fuel, and be back on my way, it’s just really quick, easy, convenient, and I’m confident in the product I’m getting.
