While most pastors stood behind their pulpits on Sunday morning, Rev. Will Marotti was on the racetrack in Speedway, Indiana.

Marotti, the lead pastor of New Life Church in Wallingford, Connecticut, fell in love with racing growing up, and, just over a year ago, he gathered up the necessary resources to form a team to enter the Indianapolis 500. Sure enough, on May 29, Marotti led the first-ever Christian team to a 12th place finish at the 100th running of what is known as The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
Although one of his goals was to establish the brand of Marotti Racing, he also had a bigger goal in mind:
"There has never been an Indy racing team led by a minister," Marotti said in a press release preceding the race. "It may seem unusual that a pastor would lead a racing team, but I have been a racing fan since I was a young boy and it's a prime missionary field...Now, as a pastor, I see the race as a place to reach out with the Gospel as well - and that is what my team is praying we can do!"

Be it on the radio, on television or in person, Rev. Will Marotti hasn't missed an Indianapolis 500 since 1969. But this year is very different.
In the 100th running of the race, he incredibly has the chance to win it.
In one of the unlikeliest stories of this year's Indy 500, there will be "no pastor faster" than Marotti, who is the owner of Marotti Racing, founded in 2015.
...
"It's curious, it's unique, but people have been very, very accepting and very gracious," Marotti told CNN in a phone interview. "And yeah, there's a few jokes along the way, like 'Jesus take the wheel' and the 'faster pastor' thing, but it's been a great experience."
Instead of buying a ticket and sitting with other fans, Marotti will be watching the race at the timing stand with the engineers and the strategists who are in radio communication with the team, soaking it all in.
"I'm just here to learn," Marotti said. "I've been a fan my entire life. I know a lot about it because I've been a fan and I've been a very enthusiastic fan, but at this level, this is something I'm stepping into for the first time, so I am 100% a student."
Lifelong love of racing
Marotti, a senior pastor at the non-denominational New Life Church in Wallingford, Connecticut, said he fell in love with racing when he was a little boy, watching quarter midget racing at a local track with his father. A little more than a year ago, he started thinking about starting his own racing team.
He knew it wouldn't be easy, and he knew it would be expensive, revealing that having one car for one month for the Indy 500 costs around $1 million.
"When I started, I called the track first at Indianapolis and IndyCar and told them what I wanted to do," Marotti said. "They said, 'Listen, that's a great ambition, but understand this. A thousand people a year like you call us saying they want to do this, and nothing ever takes place.' You're driving at something here that's extremely difficult to find, but none of the teams really took us seriously."
A pastor leading an IndyCar team does seem incredibly far-fetched, but Marotti pressed on, calling every IndyCar team that was out there.
...
"Our goal was pretty simple," Marotti said.
...
"He's a phenomenal driver," Marotti said of the 41-year-old.
...
"You're out on the basketball court," Marotti said, his voice quavering, "And in your mind, you're shooting for the last shot, and the buzzer goes off, and you let the ball go, and you swish it, and you win the championship, and you did it.
