INDYCAR: Marotti Racing closes in on IndyCar program - Marotti Racing

Will Marotti says his dream of fielding a team in the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 is taking the necessary steps to become a reality.
The Connecticut-based pastor recently visited chassis manufacturer Dallara in Italy, and reveals the Marotti Racing team is working on other key relationships to solidify a limited Verizon IndyCar Series program in 2016. "I would say as of today we're comfortably at 80 percent completion on the project," Marotti (LEFT) told RACER. "I'm quite confident we'll have a car entered; I've been to Dallara, put my hands on the chassis we intend to purchase as our primary, and we'll also buy a gently-used chassis as the backup. We're excited about bringing a brand-new car to Indy and plan to do more than compete; we want to race." Like the Grace Autosport team that is planning to make its Indy debut with the support of a partner team, Marotti says he's pursuing a similar deal with an existing IndyCar entrant. "We've been fortunate to meet some folks in Indianapolis and have made some connections; we've reached out to about a half-dozen teams, made a lot of phone calls and trips to meet with teams, and we've landed on who we're going to align with," he said. "We're not ready to announce names, but I think they're excited about us, and we're excited about them, so we have that settled. We're going to be with a team that is capable of winning the race and we aren't going there to be satisfied finishing 22nd." Marotti has also expanded his Indy 500 plans to include the Indianapolis road course race. "Our goal, originally, was only for the 100th race, but it became apparent that because we're new, and have a new car, we need to run the Angie's List race to get the team ready, to do pit stops, and all the stuff you don't want to do for the first time in the 500," he said.

(CNN) 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. Marotti Racing has aligned with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports with the No. 77 team car, which will start in the 10th position at Sunday's Indy 500.

"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.
