I believe he won the Indy 500 in 1968. How do I know this? Because my dad had two tickets and he took my older brother and not me. My brother didn't even like cars. I was 7 at the time and I remember crying in my driveway as they pulled away to head towards Indianapolis. RIP Mr. Unser, I almost saw you win the big one!
