Unser Jr. On Indy: ‘It’s More Than Just A Race’

The Unser name rings loud around the 2.5-mile oval of Indianapolis Motor Speedway every year when the NTT IndyCar Series hits the race track during the month of May, and for good reason. “I wanted to be successful at Indy, and the only way you can do that is by winning the race. “Honestly, it’s devastating to come that close and not win,” Unser said. Looking back on the breakthrough, the most vivid memory Unser has is quite simple. “Then it became a race between Scott and I,” Unser said. Unser’s second and final Indy triumph came with Team Penske in 1994. Late in the race, Fittipaldi crashed out of the lead while attempting to lap Unser, who was running second at the time. Yes, it’s a race, but it’s more than just a race,” Unser said.
