We of the Vintage Indy Registry, along with our media team member Robert Underwood IV, would like to give a heartfelt thank you to all participants, sponsors and supporters of the Open Wheel Icons event. Moreover, a special thank you to Gateway MSP Owner Curtis Francois, sponsor John Bommarito and VP/General Manager Chris Blair, along with Sally and the entire staff at Gateway Motorsports Park who made Open Wheel Icons a success, and all of us shine.
Simply put, you each were an integral ingredient to our success. This endeavor could not have been possible without the generous contributions of Hagerty Vintage Motorsports Insurance, Speedway Motors, Bubba Burgers, Bell Helmets and Omologato Watches. We thank each and all! The event was a resounding accomplishment, and Ron and I look forward to 2019,
´╗┐with great things in the works!
Till next time, we wish everyone the best.
