Racing Legend Al Unser

Sunday, May 28 is the 107th running of the Indianapolis 500 mile race. The Unser family, Al, Bobby, and Al Jr., have won the 500 a record nine times. Our guest is racing legend Al Unser, who passed away on December 9, 2021 and who still holds the record for most Indy wins.

New Mexico People Place and Ideas host Stephen Spitz sat down with Al in 2005 at the Unser Museum to talk about the Museum, what its  like to first take the track at speeds over 200 mph, how to win, and racing against your own son. The show explores all this and much more.

Produced with assistance of Gus Tafoya, and Tristan Clum.
