The word "versatile" fits second generation race driver John Andretti very well; in fact, Andretti almost redefines the word itself. A driver since the age of nine, Andretti has been behind the wheel of almost everything with four wheels underneath it, a few with two wheels and a couple with treads and runners. Starting in sanctioned go-kart racing, Andretti has made is mark in all forms of auto racing including USAC midgets, IndyCars, NHRA Top Fuel dragsters and NASCAR.

It seemed a predetermined fate that Andretti became a race car driver. Born to racer Aldo Andretti - twin to Indy car legend Mario Andretti, John Andretti had racing streaming through his blood. It doesn't stop at his bloodline however, as Andretti's Godfather happens to be another Indy car legend - A.J. Foyt. Despite the rich family history it was John who branched out, and today, has become one of the most versatile drivers on the Andretti racing family tree.
