Biography

Italian-American auto racer who began his career in 1956 with his identical twin brother, Mario. In order to obtain racing permits, the boys falsified their ages and entered local competitions when they were 18. Aldo crashed at the end of their first season. He was in a coma for three weeks and was given last rites. He returned to racing but felt he had "lost his edge." He abandoned the sport in 1969 following another accident. He retired from racing and entered the world of business with investments in different ventures. He co-owns and manages a tire business and an auto supply business.

Aldo's son, John Andretti (born 3/12/1963) is also a race car driver.
