ALDO ANDRETTI DOESN'T WANT JOHN DOING DOUBLE DUTY

MotorSports PhotoSource OnLine editorial services director Mark D. Motz interviewed John Andretti and his father Aldo recently about John's desire to compete in both the Indianapolis 500 IRL race and the Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR Winston Cup event on the same day.

While John is enthusiastic about the prospects of repeating the feat he accomplished in 1993, his father is against the idea.

"I personally don't think he should do it," Aldo said. "He's got too much to lose by trying to run at Indy. He's got a commitment to his (NASCAR) team.

Despite his father's feelings, John has arrived at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and has completed his physical. Now all he has to do is find a ride.

Find out what both father and son have to say about this endeavor on the MotorSports PhotoSource OnLine Web site. The complete story is online now, so check it out.
