Trisha Hoffman interviews the famous race car driver about his Catholic faith

You may have heard the famous question, "Who do you think you are, Mario Andretti?” But where did it come from? Mario says the first time he believes he ever heard it was in Santa Monica, California, in 1977. He was a passenger in a car with his friend Vince Granatelli who was driving when police pulled them over and the officer asked, "Who do you think you are:  Mario Andretti?" To which Vince pointed to Mario and replied, "No, but he is!" As far as who came-up with the line, Mario says has no idea but he does know that he has angels to thank for his incredible life and career.
