Andrew said that it is great that the winner of the Indianapolis 500 drinks milk and he says it is an absolute honor to be involved in the 500.
I asked Andrew if he had to be nominated for the position this year and he said that the Indiana Dairy Association nominated him for the post.
He said that he is truly excited to go down in history as the milk man for the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge. Andrew went on to say that if fans want to see the what the drivers milk preferences are for Sunday’s race they can visit the Indiana Dairy Association’s website.
Andrew said that it is an honor to represent not just his family but the 900 other dairy farmers from across the state of Indiana for Sunday’s race.
The tradition of winners drinking milk at the Indianapolis 500 dates back to 1936 when Louis Meyer asked for Buttermilk and a lasting tradition was born. For more information about the American Dairy Association of Indiana visit – https://winnersdrinkmilk.com/
