Bills Today

How McLaren Racing changed two Bills' fans lives forever


Last month, McLaren Racing gave two Bills fans the experience of a lifetime. 

After the Bills played the Titans on Monday Night Football, McLaren Racing surprised two Bills fans who were at the game with a week-long trip to introduce them to the speed-fueled world of McLaren Racing and Formula 1. 

McLaren selected fans of the Buffalo Bills because the Bills are McLaren driver Daniel Riccardo's favorite team, and the Bills have the best and most passionate fans in the world. 

Two fans Matt Reigelsperger and Nolan Ringo traveled from Nashville to Austin and the trip ended with the Formula 1 US Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas. 

Both fans had no clue what they were getting into, but it turned out to be something they'll never forget. 

"You gave two guys that would've never had the opportunity to do something like this, you gave them an experience that money can't buy," Ringo said.

The day after the game, the two arrived back at Nissan Stadium swapped their Bills gear for some McLaren swag and got in a Papaya-orange McLaren and they were off on their journey. The two went skydiving, received a message from Josh Allen, did laps on a lap track and so much more. 

Reigelsperger is so happy to be welcomed into the McLaren family and will cherish these memories forever. 

 "This trip wasn't even really about friendship, it was about family," Reigelsperger said. "I'm part of Bills Mafia or the Bills family because my dad raised me as a Bills fan. And I'm also now part of the McLaren family. They opened up their world to us and accepted us, and now I get to share those moments with my son… I can't wait to get back and show him that he's also part of this family."
