NASCAR America: Ken Squier tells the story of Mario Andretti’s Daytona 500 win

Mario Andretti didn't fit with the racing style of his day, but he used his unorthodox driving style to become a Daytona 500 champion.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Mario Andretti’s win in the 1967 Daytona 500. It was the IndyCar legend’s only win in 12 NASCAR starts.

Legendary announcer Ken Squier narrates a video essay on how Andretti’s race win came to be and how Andretti joined A.J. Foyt as the only drivers to win the Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500.

Andretti will serve as an honorary race office for the 59th Daytona 500 this weekend.
