RIP Al Unser

When I first got interested in Indy car racing, I was a fan of Big Al and Bobby Unser.  I never liked Little Al, and Bobby became less likeable to me as I got older, but I always liked Big Al.

The first 500 I went to was when Al  won his first race. Went back the next year and the same thing happened. He was one of my favorites for sure. I got a lot of insight into the Unser family dynamic when I recently read the Al Unser, Jr book. Some of it I would probably rather not known. But it reminded me that even legends and heroes are really just human beings like the rest of us. It is a sad day as a generation of drivers pass away one by on.
