Mario's life in racing was rich in accomplishment, savored to the fullest. And today
that theme continues far beyond the race track. He has a winery, a petroleum business
and other interests. He works with a number of blue chip companies. His commitment
to these businesses and his personal involvement motivates all employees.


When Mario talks about the quality, performance and reliability of Firestone tires, he speaks from more than 40 years of experience. As a longtime test driver for the company, he helped develop the racing tire that led to many of his most notable achievements. With Firestone tires under him, Mario won the Indy 500, Daytona 500, three of his Indy Car National Championships, the Dirt Track Championship, three Sebring endurance races and his first F1 victory in South Africa. Mario has been an ambassador and loyal friend to Firestone and his relationship with the company continues.

Andretti Winery

In his quest for his various racing championships, Mario traveled the world. His travels to exotic places - combining great dining with fine wine - led to his ultimate appreciation of wine as one of life's pleasures. After years of measuring success in hundredths of a second, Mario retired from racing and turned his attention to the slow art of making wine.

Today the Andretti Winery in California's Napa Valley is a popular destination for tasting the finest wines, as well as a magnificent setting for special events.

The Mario Andretti Racing Experience

This is the only place where anyone with a driver's license can drive a full-size, 600 hp, Indy-style race car. This isn't a school where you go to learn to become a professional race car driver, but where you go for a three hour session that allows you to feel what it's like - and it's like no other. After a brief classroom session, you'll be in the cockpit of an Indy-style race car for the world's fastest driving experience. Offered at 12 oval tracks around the country, check the website for answers to frequently asked questions, for tracks and prices.

Andretti Karting and Games

Andretti Indoor Karting and Games is a popular entertainment destination with two locations in the Atlanta area. Appropriate for the whole family and ideal for hosting a special event or corporate meeting. Featuring high-speed super karts, European-style tracks, racing simulators, a state of the art arcade with 100+ games, a ropes course and so much more (all tested by the Andretti family). And if you prefer to be around action, but not participate, you can hang with friends in the bar, eat at The Andretti Grill where the chef is fabulous, or watch any number of big games on the TVs.
