Synopsis: Relentless determination, unrivaled charisma, and the ability to climb into any type of race car and win has made Mario Andretti a household name for more than thirty years. His accomplishments include four USAC and CART titles, the 1978 Formula One World Championship, winning the 1967 Daytona 500 and 1969 Indianapolis 500, and three victories in the grueling 12 Hours of Sebring sports-car race.
Mario achieved his dream against enormous odds. As a boy in Italy he and his family lived among Nazis under Communist occupation, lost everything they owned, and emigrated to America in 1955. As a teenager he built his first Hudson stock car and won his very first race. His unmistakable talent soon earned him seats in better, faster cars. Just six years after his first race, he drove to his first USAC championship and was Rookie of the Year at the 1965 Indy 500.
For the first time, his extraordinary life story is presented through exclusive interviews with Mario, his family, and the drivers and teams he raced with. In-depth descriptions of his greatest races and cars, combined with behind-the-scenes team photos and commentary by Mario himself, provide an insider's perspective on the progression of racing technology and the teamwork behind a winning effort.
Mario Andretti: A Driving Passion documents the toughness, intelligence, and humor that makes Mario the man so compelling and reveals the remarkable mixture of determination and luck, both good and bad, that defined his career as the most versatile and accomplished racer of all time.
