Scoop Malinowski (how's that for a name?) has a nice "Biofile" on Mario Andretti at CBS Sportsline. It contains nifty information such as:

Funny Racing Memory: "Believe it or not, it was in 1977, I won the Italian Grand Prix. I fell asleep in the car on the grid (just prior to race start). We jumped in the cars, waited the five minutes for the signal. It was really relaxed. Then they gave you the 30 seconds. Suddenly everyone started their engines, I wake up, What the heck?!? It was right in that time in the afternoon -- so relaxed I fell asleep [smiles]. And I was on pole. The mechanics laughed. They couldn't believe it."
Talk about ice in the veins.
