30 Days in MayDay 11

No. 11 Mario Andretti – 1973 Viceroy Parnelli/Offy

When Mario Andretti joined Al  Unser and Joe Leonard at Vel’s Parnelli Jones for the 1972 season, it was expected this “Super Team” would dominate the Indianapolis 500 and the IndyCar circuit.

As it turned out, these years were not a lot of fun for Andretti.

In 1973 he started a strong 6th, but retired after four laps with a broken piston to finish 30th.
