He was still winning in his 50's. He was driving a sprint car that I had bought for him. The Experience of a Lifetime is for the racing enthusiast! The Mario Andretti Racing Experience This is the only place where anyone with a driver's license can drive a full-size, 600 hp, Indy-style race car.

But my relief at this discovery is replaced by regret at what the speedway reveals. Come with loved ones, or host your event at Andretti Winery and enjoy Old World Charm.

That is Mario Andretti's nightmare. Andretti joined , , , , Fittipaldi and Peterson in the select group possessing sufficient skill to bring schizophrenic Lotus machinery to near its full potential.

However, due to facial reconstructive surgery following a major racing accident, Aldo does not look identical to Mario. Tap the brake too late.
