Mario Andretti and Rick Mears remember Al Unser

December 21, 2021

Al Unser was one of the greatest drivers in Indianapolis 500 history. When he won his fourth Indianapolis 500 in 1987, he joined AJ Foyt as the only drivers to win the famed race four times in a career at that time. Since then, Rick Mears joined them as a four-time winner in 1991 and Helio Castroneves won his fourth Indianapolis 500 on May 30.

Pit Pass Indy show host Bruce Martin pays tribute to Unser, who died from a rare form of cancer on December 9. Unser was 82.

In addition to winning four Indy 500s, Unser also won three INDYCAR National Championships and scored an impressive 39 victories. In addition to his outstanding IndyCar record, Unser also finished fourth in the 1968 Daytona 500 NASCAR race and had another fourth-place finish in a NASCAR race at Riverside, California in 1969.

Racing legends Mario Andretti and Rick Mears join show host Bruce Martin to remember the great Al Unser on this edition of Pit Pass Indy.

In the world of racing, "Penske" means performance ... and winning. For good reason. Since 1966, Team Penske has won 44 national championships, 17 IndyCar alone. And last year, Team Penske recorded its second-straight NASCAR Cup Series championship and won its record 19th Indianapolis 500. Those are results that are tough to top.
