Indy 500 1973: Mario Andretti
Mario Gabriele Andretti (born February 28, 1940) is a retired Italian-born American automobile racing driver, one of the most successful Americans in the history of the sport. He is one of only two drivers to win races in the four major motor racing categories: Formula One, IndyCar, World Sportscar Championship and NASCAR, the other being Dan Gurney. He also won races in midget cars, sprint cars and drag racing.
To date, he remains the only driver ever to win the Indianapolis 500 (1969), Daytona 500 (1967) and the Formula One World Championship.
