Biography

Three-Time Indy 500 Winner
Mention the name "Bobby Unser" to the average person, and winning auto races instantly comes to mind. Bobby Unser, the older of the two famous racing brothers, established the family legend many years ago by capturing his first Indy 500 win in 1968. He has also won the "Brickyard" classic three times (1968, 1975, and 1981.)

Bobby Unser has compiled one of the most impressive lists of accomplishments in American racing history. Quickly glancing over his racing record, it is easy to see why he was selected as one of Sports Illustrated's "Top Five Athletes" in the popular magazine's first twenty years.

Bobby Unser's accomplishments include the first driver to record a 200 mph qualifying average speed in Indy car competition, 35 career Indy car wins, 49 Indy car pole positions, eight 500-mile Indy car victories, winnings over $2.6 million, four International Race of Champions (IROC) wins, and a record of 13 Pikes Peak Hill Climb wins. Additionally, he owned and prepared Al Jr.'s car for the Pikes Peak winning effort in 1983 and son Robby's winning efforts in 1987, 1988, 1989, and 1990. Bobby Unser won the inaugural Jaguar Fast Masters Racing Series in 1983, and in 1993 set new land speed record of 223.709 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Bobby Unser has become one of the most insightful spokespersons in the history of auto racing. Leaning on his championship-studded and versatile racing career as a resource for racing knowledge, Bobby Unser has opened the intricate world of racing to the sports public. He has served and continues to serve as one of the corporate industry's premier spokespersons. He worked as ABC's chief analyst on the network's Indy 500 telecasts, was a race analyst and commentator for CBC television, an automobile-racing commentator for ABC, and appears as a guest speaker at an average of 40 functions all over the country during the year.

Companies such as Audi, the American Gas Association, Bombardier Snowmobiles, Mechanical Industries, Mid-Western Transit, Turbo Tek Enterprises, IBM, General Motors, Heublein Corporation, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, Champion Spark Plugs, Jorgensen Steel, Mobil Oil Corporation and Industrial Training Systems are just a sampling of the corporations which have used Bobby Unser's services to communicate their ideas and promote their products. Bobby Unser's motivational book, Winners are Driven, was released in March of 2003. Bobby has appeared on television shows including Kudlow and Cramer, Hannity and Colmer, and The Best Damn Sports Show, and has given more than 100 radio interviews. His championship legacy provides him with unique insight into what it is like to be in the cockpit at 200 mph, as well as explaining the intricacies of race strategy, car technology, and advanced driving techniques. Bobby Unser's on-going association with drivers and team-owners alike make him a prominent Indy Car celebrity and his unique experience, both behind the wheel and behind the camera, make him both a colorful and insightful speaker.
