INDIANAPOLIS — Aldo Andretti has died, said Andretti Autosport.

Aldo was 80-years-old when he died on Wednesday in Indianapolis.

He’s the identical twin brother of IndyCar legend Mario Andretti, and while his life took a different direction, Aldo shared a passion for racing like his brother, said Andretti Autosport.

Aldo was born in Montona, Italy, and he and his family emigrated to the United States in 1955 and went on to start the greatest racing dynasty in history.

Nothing mattered more to Aldo than his family, said the release. He had five children, MaryJo, Mark, Adam, Carolyn, and John who died in January.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 5 at noon, at St. Malachy Catholic Church in Brownsburg, and the family will greet friends from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Jan. 4, at Stevens Mortuary in Indianapolis, Indiana.
