Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer
Michael Andretti is the winningest driver in CART history with 42 victories and
led 6,702 Indy car laps during his career, second only to his father, Mario. When
Michael ascended to the level of team owner, it was impossible to think any
team could live up to those standards and expectations. Impossible to think, but
Andretti rose to the challenge and has become one the winningest owner in
Since joining INDYCAR in 2003 as Andretti Green, Andretti Autosport has
compiled 48 IZOD IndyCar Series wins and 20 Firestone Indy Lights
The team claimed consecutive IZOD IndyCar Series championships in
2004 and 2005, winning 11 of 17 races including the Indianapolis
500 in 2005. In 2006, eight drivers drove under the Andretti
Autosport banner and all eight led laps during an event.
The 2007 season did not fail to enhance the Andretti legacy.
Andretti Autosport captured its third IndyCar Series title and
second Indianapolis 500 win.
Andretti again rose to the challenge in 2012 when he
brought the 2012 IZOD IndyCar Series championship back
home to Andretti Autosport. He served as not only the
team owner, but the strategist on Ryan Hunter-Reay's
league-leading four victories of the season and clinched
the tile in the finale race at Auto Club Speedway
in Fontana, Cali.
As one of the most well-known racing personalities in the United States,
Andretti stepped out of the race car on a full-time basis in 2003 as
CART's most successful driver.
After a two-year absence and feeling the itch to drive again,
he returned to the cockpit to drive in the Indianapolis 500 in 2006.
Andretti found himself leading "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing"
with as little as three laps remaining and ultimately finished third,
proving he is still one of the elite drivers in the world. Again in 2007, Andretti returned to the cockpit one more time. Andretti led one lap on his way to a 13th place finish in the final race of his career.
With his full-time driving career behind him, Andretti continues to set the standard in the racing industry, albeit from behind the pit wall.
Andretti, who has two sons (Marco and Lucca) and a daughter (Marissa), resides in Indianapolis with his wife Jodi, two cats and a dog.
