Auto Racing – 1987 – Indy 500 – Al Trautwig Interviews Mario Andretti After Car Failure At Mile 460

Racing legend Mario Andretti won the Indy 500 in 1969…..but other than that race….it was Andretti’s only win at the Indianapolis 500 in 29 attempts…..as Super Mario has had so many incidents and near victories at the Indy 500 that critics have dubbed the family’s performance after Mario’s 1969 Indianapolis 500 victory the “Andretti Curse”….which is evidenced by this interview at the 1987 Indy 500….when Mario Andretti had been the leader of the race all the way up to 20+ laps remaining…..when once again, the “Andretti Curse” came into play.
