50th Anniversary Of Andretti’s Indy Win Marked With Special Museum Display



Wow 50 years already.

American motor sport legend Mario Andretti doesn’t lack for many accolades. He has totalled considerable success across Formula 1, sports cars, NASCAR, midgets, sprint cars as well as in IndyCars, and has good claim as the sport’s greatest ever all-rounder. But victory in the blue riband Indianapolis 500 was one that–almost–entirely eluded him. He won the uniquely challenging race just once, in 1969, indeed he only made it to the finish it on five occasions. This was despite taking part 29 times and that only two drivers ever have led more laps at the event than him, as well as despite Andretti’s glittering career including four IndyCar championships and 52 race wins in the category.
