05/06/06 This rumor is upgraded to 'fact' today. All three generations of the racing Andretti family will take to the famous oval for a ceremonial lap at noon Sunday as the track opens for practice. Mario Andretti will drive the No. 1 Dean Van Lines Hawk/Ford in which he earned the pole position for the 1967 Indianapolis 500. Michael Andretti and Marco Andretti will drive their 2006 Indy 500 cars, Michael in the No. 1 Jim Beam/Vonage Dallara/Honda/Firestone and Marco in the No. 26 NYSE Group Dallara/Honda/Firestone.

05/03/06 Rumor has it that Mario, Michael and Marco Andretti could be on the track together during opening day of Indy 500 practice this year. One has to wonder if Mario might drive his 1969 Brawner Hawk Indy winner with Michael and Marco in their 2006 cars. Recently Mario's pole winning 1966 car was out on the track for a few laps, so perhaps that could be the car. Of course we are speculating about what exactly is planned, only that we should look for the three of them on opening day.
