Adam Andretti

For those of you desperate for any and all motorsports news relating to Open Wheel racing like your chief hack… Then you may wish to tune-in to Autosport Radio this Tuesday night, (4PM Pacific/7PM Eastern) as “Master of Ceremonies, ” Mr. Donald Kay will have Adam Andretti as “Juan ‘O” his guests.

Adam is the son of Aldo Andretti, Mario’s older brother and John Andretti is his older brother, with Michael & Jeff being his cousins. The 28 year old Brownsburg, Indiana native has just signed a contract with the newly formed FuZion AutosportIndy Pro Series (ISP) team and will contest the entire 2008 season.

Adam is a Skip Barber graduate and started his racing career in the half scale mini stock cars series with the help of brother John, before racing shifter karts in the SKUSA series for two years. Next he raced in Formula 3 along with a drive in the Rolex 24 before changing gears and joining the RASSCAR Featherlite southwest series from 2001-02. He’s also driven a Corvette at Sebring in the SPEED Cup Challenge as well as being a driving instructor for “Road ‘N AD”(Road & Track) as well as the Richard Petty Driving Experience before making his ISP debut at Chicagoland in 2007.

Joining Adam as a guest on this program will be Mike Hull, who’s become the “Cheepster’s” (Chip Ganassi) right-hand man. Mike is in charge of engineering for Target Chip Ganassi Racing and has been a vital cog at TCGR since 1992…
