at least, that's who I remember it.

I will never forget eating with Bobby Unser, Al and little Al in Bobby Unser's trailer in Milwaukee, and meeting a few others like Rick Mears, Mario Andretti and Jose Garza. The Unser's were the nicest racing family I ever met.




That is what my face looks right now as I am reading this, Scott!!!...

WOW, is all I can say...how fortunate you were to meet with Indy Car 'Royalty'....
