    John has sadly lost his battle with cancer...

    My prayers are with the Andretti family through this tough time.

    What a wheelman and gentlemen he was, he was always a class act and always had a smile on his face.

    Aww man, that's a shame. He always came across to me as a really good guy.

    I remember his Daytona win very well - the 1997 Pepsi 400. I was 12 years old, and I did NOT want my arch nemesis, Dale Earnhardt, to win that race. I sure as heck didn't think John was gonna be able to hold him and the rest of the field off, but somehow, he did, and I was ecstatic.

    Farewell, John. :(

    The 30 second (Camping World) tribute to John Andretti which aired before a commercial segment during the truck race is very well done.
    Both understated and effective, very much like John Andretti as I remember him. A perfectly silent clip of just a few images and the following words:

    •True Ambassador
    •You will be missed.
