Mario Andretti, the open-wheel star, became the first foreign-born winner of the Daytona 500 in 1967. He’ll return to Daytona this year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his win for Holman-Moody.
The Daytona 500 victory only added to Andretti’s iconic legacy as one of the best drivers ever. He’s the only driver to win the Daytona 500, Indianapolis 500, a Formula One World Championship, along with four IndyCar titles, and many other wins across different disciplines of racing.
