Son of Michael, currently in the Indycar series with his dad's team. Although having the famous surname helped, Marco was hugely successful in the Barber Formula Dodge Eastern and National Championships and also in Star Mazda, which helped his rapid rise to the IRL in 2006. Andretti then, at that time, became the youngest winner of a major open-wheel racing event. However, his expected title success hasn't come since. Has also raced in sportscars and A1 GP since his IRL debut.
