INDIANAPOLIS — Aldo Andretti took his last lap at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Wednesday, a week after his passing was announced.
Andretti, the twin brother of 1969 Indy 500 champion Mario Andretti, passed away at the age of 80.
Aldo was born in 1940 in Italy. While his life took him on a different path than his brother's, the family said Aldo was often at races supporting his family.
A statement on his passing said that Aldo was proud to have shared his life with wife and high school sweetheart, Corky, and their five children Carolyn, Mark, John, Mary Jo and Adam.
His son, John, passed away last year after a battle with colon cancer.
