MOORESVILLE, North Carolina – On the track, Marco Andretti is driving with fierce desire and determination that has led General Manager Kyle Moyer to say it’s the best he’s ever seen Mario Andretti’s grandson race. Unfortunately, mechanical failures, mistakes and plain bad luck has the son of team owner Michael Andretti mired in seventh place in the Verizon IndyCar Series standings.

Perhaps a return to his best racetrack will be enough to save Andretti’s season.
