RIP Bobby Unser

Bobby Unser, three-time Indy 500 champion, dies at 87: 'There was nobody like him'

Bobby Unser, three-time Indianapolis 500 winner and a larger-than-life, colorful character in racing who would talk to anyone anywhere about "the greatest sport in the world," passed away at his home in Albuquerque, N.M., Sunday at the age of 87.

Unser was best known in racing for being the first driver to win the Indy 500 in three different decades, 1968, 1975 and 1981. Only four-time-winner Rick Mears has surpassed Unser in number of wins.

Unser is one of just 10 drivers to have won the Greatest Spectacle in Racing more than twice, a list which also includes his brother Al Unser Sr. (1970, 1971, 1978 and 1987). He was also the uncle of two-time Indy 500 winner Al Unser Jr.
