Today is the 77th birthday of My All Time Favorite Racing Driver, and in my opinion, is either the greatest or tied for the greatest racing driver to ever live. Happy Birthday to Mario Andretti. He is one of two men to have won both the Daytona and the Indianapolis 500. He is also the 1978 Formula One World Drivers champion, but in my opinion, his greatest accomplishment would be the fact that he is one of 3 people to win a major race at a dirt oval, paved oval, and a road course in one season. If you ask Mario, his best achievement is being the father of his 3 children, Michael, Jeff, and Barbara, with his wife Dee Ann, who have been married for over 55 years. Michael and Jeff followed in their fathers footsteps, and Michael's son Marco, also followed the family job. In addition to Marco, Mario has 6 other grand children, Marissa, Miranda, Isabella, Lucca, Mia, and Mario, who is named for his grandfather. Also, happy Birthday to his twin brother Aldo, who is the father of NASCAR Winston Cup Series winner John Andretti.
