Speaking on the “Dale Jr. Download” podcast, [Mario] Andretti was asked about his involvement in racing after stepping out of the cockpit, which includes being involved with his son’s racing ventures. Michael Andretti, the son of Mario, fields Andretti Autosport in the NTT IndyCar Series, a team that has won four IndyCar championships and has five Indianapolis 500 victories.

Michael Andretti was denied the opportunity to field a team in Formula 1 earlier in the year, in a move that sparked much public outcry from fans. Now, it sounds like Andretti could be preparing for a venture in the NASCAR Cup Series.

“With Michael being involved in every aspect of our sport, that gives me reason to find a home no matter where I go,” Mario Andretti said. “Pretty soon, it’s going to be a home even in Cup, and I hope I’m still alive for that.”

Last summer, Michael Andretti seemed to show interest in Andretti Autosport joining the NASCAR Cup Series. One of the team’s main sponsors, Gainbridge, became a key partner with Spire Motorsports, which fields three NASCAR Cup Series entries.
