Michael Andretti, driver of the No. 6 Big Kmart/Texaco/Havoline Ford-Lola is still one of the drivers in the hunt for the CART FedEx Series 2000 Championship. Following are a few notable celebrities rooting for CART's winningest active driver.

"I have been a racing fan for years, and Michael Andretti has always been one of my favorite drivers. He is exciting to watch, and brings so much to the sport, not to mention being such a good person, a champion on and off the racetrack. I wish him all the best for another Championship title this year, I know he can do it."
Monica Seles , Sanex WTA tennis player

"Good luck Michael. I think it would be great to see you win your second CART championship. I don't get to watch many CART races since we have 34 races of our own, but I'm pulling for you. I know how much work it takes to fight for a championship all season. It is pretty special to win one, let alone two. Keep up the good work and we're rooting for you at Roush."
Mark Martin , driver of the No. 6 Valvoline/Cummins Ford Taurus in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series

"Keep up the hard work and you will have your second championship."
Ricky Rudd , driver of the No. 28 Texaco/Havoline Ford Taurus in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series

"Michael, best of luck for a second CART Championship...your great talent continues to inspire us all!
Kathy Ireland , actress and supermodel

"Mike - there's nothing I'd like better than seeing you win another championship -- unless, of course, it's seeing you in fishnet stockings and a strapless sundress. Good luck with the rest of the season and put the Andretti name on top!"
Tim Allen , actor

"Being from a family of actors, I've always been fascinated with other famous families. In the racing world, there are none more famous than the Andretti's. Not only am I a huge fan, but I consider it my great honor to call Michael Andretti and his family my friends. Good luck in your Championship bid!"
Daniel Baldwin , actor/director

"Good luck in your bid for your second Championship. One is hard to come by so good luck with your second one. The tight points race is good for the CART series. Keep up the hard work."
Wayne Gretzky , former NHL Hockey Player
