John Andretti, 1963-2020

John Andretti, one of racing’s most versatile drivers in the modern era and a member of the famed Andretti family, died Thursday. Andretti, the son of Aldo Andretti and nephew of Mario Andretti, won races in Indy cars, stock cars, sports cars and nearly won a national drag race. Andretti died of complications related to colon cancer. Andretti won a CART race in Australia in 1991 driving for Jim Hall’s VDS Racing team. Andretti backed that win up with one on the sport’s shortest tracks, Martinsville Speedway, in 1999.
