63 year old Mario Andretti - retired since 1994 - gets back behind the wheel today to shake down a car during testing.
Instead he hit debris between turns one and two while running at more than 200 miles an hour. He is airborne for over 100 yards - he flips twice and eventually lands just fine. And folks that's what he is - just fine. He walked away from the wreck and says he has no soreness. He plans to come back to the track and test again. (------------)
