Sad news, but what a long and amazing life he had. And a great long and successful career he had too. Like the Foyts and Andrettis, the Unsers are a great racing dynasty

Often overshadowed by his wins at The Brickyard are his 13 wins at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb.

A relic when I started watching racing, I recall him mostly as a broadcaster, but he was certainly one of the best of his day.

Rest well, Uncle Bobby!

The Unser family loved Pike's Peak.

Bobby sizzled around Indy in Dan Gurney's Eagle, that 1972 pole position really ushered in a new era.
