Abstract (Document Summary)

TAMPA - A book logo linked to the Church of Scientology has been removed from the car of racer Mario Andretti, who said he did not want to be associated with the book when he drives in the GTE World Challenge of Tampa.

A logo for the best-selling book, Dianetics, was taken off Andretti's high-performance Porsche on Friday night. But the veteran driver said Saturday he ``had nothing to do with (the Dianetics sponsorship) in the first place. It's not something I believe in, so I don't want to make it appear like I'm endorsing it.``

Andretti and his son, Michael, are competing for the Kremer Racing Team this weekend in the GTE World Challenge of Tampa. Achim Stroth, manager of the team, said Saturday that Andretti objected to the logo immediately after seeing his car.
