Indy 500, 2014-- Part 7: Al Unser, Jr.

And, the Unser name is familiar to me, even as a somewhat Indy 500 novice.  I know there were several Unsers who have won the race.  A quick look at Wikipedia showed that Al Unser, Jr is a two-time Indy 500 winner: 1992 and 1994.

His father, Al Unser, Sr., has won it as has his uncle Bobby.

Next time you drive Route 66 out west, you should visit the Unser Racing Museum about 3 miles north of old 66 in Albuquerque. Tell them you know Al.

Yep, I said hi to him.

I think the Unsers are from New Mexico if I recall.
