He drove at Sebring six times (1966, 67, 69, 70, 71, 72) and won three (1967, 70, 72). Retiring after the 1994 racing season, Andretti continues to hold the all-time Indy car record for poles won (67), race starts (407), and laps led (7,587) and is second all-time in Indy car victories (52). In 2000, Andretti was named the "Driver of the Century" by both the Associated Press and Racer magazine. He was inducted into the Sebring International Raceway Hall of Fame in 2004.
