|Colin, Mario & Clint|
Mario Andretti and his twin brother Aldo turn 80 today. It is incredible to think that Mario is in such good shape that he still drives the 2-seat IndyCar at 200 mph.
Below we have collected a sampling of tweets wishing Mario a happy 80th birthday. Enjoy.
Happy Birthday @MarioAndretti & Aldo; brave enough to talk to you; you were so gracious to this young race fan & even better, talked racing! No selfies in ‘67, but took couple pix’s pic.twitter.com/Py6q9HWMd2

#HappyBirthday Mario Andretti, 80 years young today. One of the most versatile racing drivers of all time, successful in everything & everywhere, he scored his 18th & final GP pole at Monza in '82, for Ferrari, at the age of 42, & what a fantastic pic this is from that very race. pic.twitter.com/Q1M09kKTQS
