Michael Andretti has confirmed his intention that Sunday’s Indianapolis 500 would be his last as a driver, ending a career that spanned 28 years.Say what you will about "the Andretti Curse", but Michael still gets to walk away on his own terms instead of being driven out in an ambulance. It's nowhere near the same as having his face on the Borg-Warner, but having the lead for 431 laps without a victory at IMS may be a mark that stands for quite some time.
Andretti finished 13th in Sunday’s race, which was won by fellow Andretti Green Racing driver Dario Franchitti. It was Andretti's second Indy 500 after a two-year hiatus in which he didn’t race. This time, he indicated he’s done for good.
”Right now I have no thought of coming back,” Andretti said Monday during a photo session at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for Franchitti and other team members. “I would be very surprised if my feelings changed. I’m glad I did it -- it was all good -- but I was going crazy this month.”(MORE)
At any rate, thanks for the memories Michael. Even the bad ones.
