Andretti Autosport owner Michael Andretti and Leroy.

NEWTON, Iowa — In honor of Take Your Dog to Work Day, Andretti Autosport owner Michael Andretti brought his German Shepherd, Leroy, to the Andretti Autosport garage at Iowa Speedway after the first IZOD IndyCar Series practice.

Andretti bought the Leroy – who is trained as a protection dog – for his wife, Jodi, earlier this week.

“He was watching the cars go around earlier,” Andretti said. “I think he likes being here.”

Take Your Dog to Work Day began in 1999 to celebrate dogs as companions and to promote adoptions by showing off the bond between dog and owner.
