>> this fire destroyed everything i've worked for 30 years. and it's like we need to find a kitchen somewhere because we need to do the pasta for the children. >> unfortunately, that mission was clearly over, or so he thought. until he got home, turned on his computer and learned what happens sometimes when really bad things happen to really good people. he got thousands of messages online and hundred more in person, all of them offers to pitch in. >> whatever i can do. >> a fund raiser. ny way we can help. >> with that, the man who started serving all those kids on his own was alone no more. >> you want to make sure that you rebuild that restaurant so you can continue to serve all these children. more than a dozen caterers and competitors offered their kitchen for free. he didn't miss a single day feeding his favorite customers.
6:58 am
people have also donated money to help rebuild the restaurant. >> is everything good? >> do you think you'll look back say i'm actually glad that happened? >> you say you give a lot and get it back. i get one million times back. >> now that's a lot of karma. >> pauley: still to come. full speed ahead with mario andretti. and later -- >> i was invited to go cross country skiing. >> pauley: jim gaffigan, good sport. as after a dvt blood clot,ital i sure had a lot to think about. what about the people i care about? ...including this little girl.
6:59 am
and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding.
7:00 am
both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. >> pauley: behold a replica of 1966 ford gt-40 exactly the type of car mario andretti drove that year. more than half a century, mario andretti is still driving. and even giving our mo lock could a lift for this sunday profile. >> you would have thought i'd be nervous climbing into the buck
7:01 am
seat of a race car at sonoma raceway, but when the driver is a 77-year-old grandfather, why worry? suddenly i'm going 180 miles an hour. who does gramps think he is, march? >> i'm an adrenaline junk key. without it i'd die. >> even though he's long retired from racing every few weeks, mario andretti takes the wheel at race tracks around the country as part of the mario andretti racing experience. he and his fellow drivers give thrilling and i can attest, some what terrifying rides to everyone from racing fans like greg of san jose. >> if you take a roller coaster and multiply by about five that might be close. but there's no rails. >> to nba superstar stephon curry. >> that was unbelievable.
7:02 am
>> andretti is arguably the greatest race car driver of all time. during his half century long career it seems there was no car he couldn't tame. >> i would say like animal trainer if you can make a tiger something that detroy you purr, you're good animal trainer. this is the same thing, you got to make that car that can destroy, make it purr, do the things you want it to do. >> we're back at daytona the lead is he still mario andretti. >> what always made andretti stand out was his versatility. he one on ovals. on road courses and on dirt. >> you don't have them separated. >> that's exactly right. i would go from the grand prix of italy to indianapolis to the dirt track race. >> no wonder the associated press named him driver of the
7:03 am
century. you have a trophy from hot wheels, come on, who wouldn't want that? >> how do you like that? >> that to me would be the pinnacle. >> would think so, anyway. >> mario andretti's road began in italy where the end of world war 2 left his family in a refugee camp in lucca. the family didn't own a car. but he and his twin brother, aldo, parked cars in a local garage. >> we were just testing some standing starts, you know, a little bit of burn outs. that's how i learn my standing starts in formula one with some of these poor customer's cars. whenever i valet a car today i'm thinking, i wonder if they're doing the same thing. >> note to self, always self park. >> when he wasn't abusing other people's cars he was at the movies, watching racing, like in this film caring clark gable and barbara stan wick. and then when mario was a 15 the
7:04 am
andrettis came to america. they settled in nazareth, pennsylvania. this is one of your first house in america. >> yeah. >> right after moving in, mario and aldo noticed a potion nearby. >> big lights maybe a mile away. it was at the fairgrounds. all of a sudden a big explosion of engines. oh, you know, aldo and i looked at each other, we booked. we followed the roar of the engines. here was local half a mile dirt track. >> this is where the noise came from? >> came from, exactly. >> that made you and your brother run? >> yes. >> you found? >> we found our future. >> the brothers cobbled toga race car. and mario began building toward a family of his own. >> i met him when i was about 16. at a holy family dance, the church dance. >> that was the start of 56-year and counting marriage to dee ann
7:05 am
andretti. >> he was already all about motorsports. >> oh, yes. i don't think he had anything else on his mind. >> he must have had something else on his mind because he started dating. >> well, that's true. >> i said, well, if i'm ever given anything in my life i hope i have the opportunity to become a race driver. from there on quite honestly i never really had a plan b in my head. >> mario's sons michael and jeff 'and nephew john followed him into racing. if you want to understand just how competitive mario andretti is, consider the portland grand prix in 1986. >> michael, tried to pass his father. look at him sneak to the inside and make a nice move. >> i got screams from my engineer, michael's starting to have some fuel problems. >> see if that car has enough fuel to go the distance. >> also lap came down to father and son. >> i just stood up on the seat. we're coming down for a drag race to the checkered flag.
7:06 am
>> coming off the corner he's out of fuel and here comes the finish line. >> i beat him by two inches. >> the closest indy car finish in history. >> we much on the podium he was not happy. somebody told him, michael, michael, it's father's day. >> happy father's day dad. >> when you heard on the radio your son is having problems were you thinking, yes! >> don't tell him that. >> that's my husband and that's my son? >> oh, yeah. i used to hate when they were together on the track because neither one would give an inch. it's scary. >> scary doesn't begin to define auto racing. i'm going to read you a list of names here. red riegel, jud larson, dick atkins, don branson, billy foster, ronnie petersen. >> that's the dark side of the
7:07 am
sport, obviously. these are some of my closest friends that i lost. in the sport. >> this 178 crash took the life of of teammate ronnie petersen. >> when most of these men died, you already had kids. did your wife say, you got to stop doing this? >> no, i know what she was going through obviously because we were going through it together. but dee ann was such a rock for me. she in so many ways she suffered in silence. >> i guess that's really what i did, yes. >> was there ever a moment where you thought, i got to tell him to stop this? >> no, because i knew what i was getting in for. you don't stop somebody if they have a real goal in life. >> did you ever think, i might have to end up raising these kids alone? >> i often thought of that, yeah. but it's just the risk you take. >> andretti competed in almost 900 races, missing only two
7:08 am
because of injury. he walked away from this triple somersault at indianapolis in 2003. you knew how competitive he was. >> oh, yes, for sure. >> and still is? >> uh-huh, yes. >> you'd think that just maybe in his eighth decade mario andretti would be ready to put it in park. and indeed you can sometimes find a more mellow mario at his winery in california's napa valley. hoisting a glass of sangiovese with the wine tourists. >> when i'm here, when i bring the family here, just replenishes my spirit. something that's soothing not just you enjoy couple of glasses but this is really a labor of love. >> but then sunday comes and mario is back at the track. his grandson, marcos driving these days for the andretti team led by mario's son, michael.
7:09 am
look in the pit and there's grandpa. does marco want your advice? >> he takes it. i mean, i volunteer, you know, some advice. >> when he comes to see you race does he come as your grandfather or as a racing legend that might have advice. >> he comes as my grandfather, you know, that really -- pulls for me. it kills me as much as it kills me when it doesn't go right. it feels good. >> i would never use the word retired to describe you. so let's just say at this stage in your career is there something special about race day? >> race day is always a new day. when i was younger i said some day when i become more mature i'm going to lose those butterflies. and i never did. from the first race to the last race i had those same butterflies, you know why? because it meant something to me. >> perhaps the best word to describe march?
7:10 am
driven. >> does it feel like you're back in it when you get in the car? >> always. it's my element. when they put me in a box it's going to have wheels on it. >> pauley: jim gaff gone's. >> like death, taxes and kale it may never go away. roller derby. ♪ now give up half of 'em. do i have to? this is a tough financial choice we could face when we retire. but, if we start saving even just 1% more of our annual income... we could keep doing all the things we love. prudential. bring your challenges. before we hit the beach, i'we can't stay here!o.

7:12 am
>> pauley: winter officially ends tomorrow. not soon enough for our contributor jim gaffigan. >> winter is still here. can you believe it? like death, taxes and kale, it may never go away. this week the northeast was hit with a nor'easter, which is like easter but instead of eggs and candy, you get snow and your screaming children kept home from school. it's harder to deal with a snowstorm in march.
7:13 am
snow and cold are interesting for about a week in december then winter turns into the dead poinsettia that sits around your house making you depressed. oh, on wednesday i was invited to go cross-country skiing. i live in new york city. i can't believe cross-country skiing is even a sport. hey you know how in downhill skiing there is that awkward part of getting over to the lift? well, what if we just did that?" cross-country skiing seems like a sport that someone came up with after they bought skis and discovered they lived nowhere near a mountain. "we don't need a mountain. we can ski.ùcross country." most winter sports seem like some last ditch effort you'd employ to escape the 'become nibble snowman. "look the only way we are going to get out of here is if we cross-country ski." "really?" "that or snowshoe?" "what will we eat?"
7:14 am
uneffortalityly we're going to have to ice fish. "we're going to have to sled or luge." "couldn't we just get a group of dogs to pull us?" people that enjoy winter in general seem mentally unstable. i just enjoy going outside when it's freezing and doing things nobody would want to do. if you were caught doing some of these winter activities you'd be sent to an insane asylum. look you need help. i saw you walking through the woods with tennis rackets tied to your feet. and yesterday i saw you sweeping a frozen lake. just bet some ship. there's nothing wrong with it. winter is the worst. no wonder we drink so much on st. patrick's day. we deserve it. >> pauley: a taste of ireland is next. >> a lot of people still think

we live on corned beef and cabbage here in ireland. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo is specifically designed to open up airways to improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. learn more about better breathing at mybreo.com.
