MICHAEL ANDRETTI

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 
not impossible.

Andretti rose to the challenge and has become one the winningest owner in 
INDYCAR history.

Since joining INDYCAR in 2003 as Andretti Green, Andretti Autosport has 
compiled 50 IndyCar Series wins and 24 Indy Lights victories.

The team claimed consecutive 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 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. Hunter-Reay also captured his first 
Indianapolis 500 win for the 98th Running in 2014.

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 three sons (Marco, Lucca and Mario) and two daughters (Marissa and Mia), resides in Indianapolis with his wife Jodi, two cats and a dog.
