One of the largest conventions Indianapolis has every year is the Future Farmers of America. There are tens of thousands of young FFA members in Indy right now taking care of their important business and seeing the sights around town.
Some of them visited the Andretti Autosport facility. What a great idea! How much more grassroots can you get than the FFA? These people are YOUNG, too. This is something all of the Indy-based racing teams should do—throw open their doors and encourage touring. Hopefully IMS does the same thing and gets the youngsters around the track.
Indy Car needs all the fans it can get, and the FFA folks could just as easily support something else. So way to go Andretti Autosport. They continue to do a lot off the track too.
