Michael Andretti Booking Agency Profile

Call PFP Sports Talent Agency at 1.800.966.1380 if you would like to contact a Michael Andretti booking agent for a speaking engagement, personal appearance, product endorsement or corporate event. Auto racer, Michael Andretti, was born October 5, 1962 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Michael Andretti is a retired CART and Formula One driver with Italian heritage. He now co-owns the Andretti Green Racing team in the Indy Racing League. He qualified eleventh for the 2007 Indianapolis 500 after finishing third in the 2006 Indianapolis 500.

Michael Andretti is the son of Mario Andretti, one of the most successful auto racing drivers of all time. He is a graduate of Nazareth Area High School in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.

Michael Andretti has driven in numerous sports car races at different times in his career. Many were Andretti family efforts, especially with his father Mario. After competing in the 2003 Indianapolis 500, Andretti retired from full-time IndyCar racing. He led the race for 28 of the opening 94 laps before a throttle linkage failure put him out of contention once again. That year he bought into the "Team Green" squad run by brothers Kim and Barry Green in CART. It became Andretti Green Racing and for 2003 the team moved to the Indy Racing League IndyCar Series.

That year, Tony Kanaan won the 2004 IndyCar Series Championship for Andretti Green Racing. In 2005, Britain's Dan Wheldon won the Indy 500, and the Championship for the team. In 2007 Scotland's Dario Franchitti won the Indianapolis 500 and the IndyCar Series title for AGR.

Michael is from the famous Andretti racing family. His brother Jeff Andretti competed in IndyCar. Michael's uncle Aldo Andretti was an open wheel racer until an accident ended his racing career. Aldo's son John Andretti (Michael's cousin) raced in IndyCar before he became a NASCAR regular. He returned to IndyCar in 2007 to race the Indy 500, and will race in the 2008 edition too. Aldo's other son, Adam also is a racecar driver. The Andretti family became the first family to have four relatives (Michael, Mario, Jeff, and John) compete in the same series (CART).

Andretti was married to Sandra Spinozzi from November 1985 to 1996 and they had two children, son Marco (born March 13, 1987) and daughter Marissa (born October 31, 1990). He remarried on December 24, 1997, to Leslie Wood. They had a child, Luca, born September 16, 1999. On September 7, 2004, Andretti filed for divorce. Two years later on July 15, 2006, Andretti announced his engagement to model, actress, and 2000 Playboy Playmate of the Year Jodi Ann Paterson. The couple were married on October 7, 2006 at the Andretti Winery in Napa Valley, California.

Michael Andretti has an estate upon an adjacent tract of land to his father's mansion of "Montona" in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, where he grew up. However that property was listed for sale in January 2008 for $3.4 million. His sister Barbara is the listing agent and said Michael has several other homes and will always have a Nazareth connection. Michael's other homes include a property in downtown Indianapolis where his son lives (near his championship race team headquarters), a residence in Miami Beach, and several other properties for investment purposes.
