    sincere sympathy goes out to his Family, extended Family, fans and fellow racers - left his mark on the world of racing in more ways than one

    Sad news to see, I followed his exploits quite a bit back when he was racing.

    :( x' a lot.
    Oddly I had no knowledge of this and watched an interview with him and Al jr. over the weekend on you tube. I followed the exploits of Bobby and Al sr. in their hay days. Bobby had to be helped to the stage for the interview, and that was sad.

    He spent some time up here in the 80s getting Robbie some time in a Sprint car. Loved his Pikes Peak endeavors

    Hey guys, check out this old video of a Bobby Unser roast.
    It was recorded in May of 2018. It has Robin Miller as mc, Parnelli Jones, Johnny Rutherford, Roger Penske, Paul Page, Rick Mears and some others. Well worth watching with your feet propped up, dog by your side and a tall pour of Jack!

    RIP racer.
    He competed as close to the heavens as one could when on Pikes Peak.
    Bet this was something to see!
