Tuesday 20th February 1934
Born on this day, Bobby Unser, retired U.S. automobile racer. He is one of ten drivers to win the Indianapolis 500 three or more times, and one of only two to have won the 500 in three different decades (1968, 1975, 1981). His brother Al and nephew Al Junior have also achieved enormous success in the sport. A 13-time winner of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, Unser became a television commentator for Indycar races after his retirement working for the ABC, ESPN and the NBC. He can often be seen visiting his family’s Unser Racing Museum in Albuquerque where many of the family’s cars are on display.
