RIP to a LEGEND.
Today, the racing world mourns the passing of three-time Indianapolis 500 champion Bobby Unser. He was the total package – adored by fans, funny and charming, and a true champion.
An icon, always remembered.
A very tough hard-nosed racer. He will be sorely missed in the racing community!
Sad day for the racing world. Loved to watch him in the 500. Prayers to his entire family.
Can’t wait to see what the track does to honor his memory this may and the memory of all the others great people of this world and beyond
I worked for Auto Racing Digest as a photographer in the late 70s and early 80s covering events in Southern California. Had the good fortune to meet Bobby, Al and Jr. All of them were very approachable and happy to take time to meet with Fans.
RIRH certainly he is in Racing Heaven…so fortunate to have met him & his bride in 2015 on The Ride For The Relay Rte 66. Such a gentleman.
Rest In Peace Mr. Unser! One of my favorite Indy 500 memories is you calling the race as Little Al won it. Just pure unadulterated joy. You will be missed.
RIP Mr. Unser I am so glad that I had the pleasure of meeting you and your family and getting a hug from you while I worked at the track. You will definitely be missed. Prayers for the family, friends and fans. You were a true great.
He was inspirational in helping my customer Skip Hedrich get his racing licence back in the 60’s .RIP Bobby Unser
How sad. Truly one of my Hero’s back in the day. I first learned of this guy at the Pike’s Peak Hill Climb in ’62 and followed his career the rest of the way. Condolences to the family and thank you Bobby for all the fun. RIP
