102-yr.-old woman rides with Mario Andretti, says he didn't drive fast enough

Posted: Updated:
MUNCIE, IN - A 102-yr.-old woman says her ride-along with racing great Mario Andretti was not fast enough. 

Edith Pittenger rode with Andretti in a two-seat race car this week, but was not impressed by the 180 mile an hour laps.


Pittenger says she hoped to hit 200 miles per hour, but Andretti said that was above the maximum. 

Dozens of family members joined Pittenger at the speedway.  For her 100th birthday, Pittenger went parasailing.
