Virginia Tire & Auto will host racing legend and Firestone brand spokesman Mario Andretti on Thursday, April 3, at its location in the Broadlands community in Ashburn, Va.

Andretti was named Driver of the Century by the Associated Press. He was a longtime test driver for the Firestone brand and helped develop the racing tire that led to many of his most notable achievements, including victories in the Indianapolis 500 and Daytona 500, three Champ Car National Championships, and the F1 World Championship. Andretti’s relationship with the Firestone brand spans four decades.

“We are thrilled to have Firestone spokesman Mario Andretti visit Virginia Tire & Auto,” says Julie Holmes, vice president. “Like Mr. Andretti’s commitment to automotive excellence and accomplishment, we are committed to providing every customer with a winning experience in car care and being a trusted source for any Firestone tire needs.”

Andretti will visit with fans and sign autographs outside the store from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. The dealership will provide food, entertainment and prizes to those in attendance.

Virginia Tire & Auto is a family-owned business that has been in operation since 1976. It is based in Fairfax, Va., and has 12 locations in northern Virginia.
