Bobby Unser And Parnelli Jones

by Mike –

I had the privilege and thrill recently to meet Bobby Unser and Parnelli Jones. The venue was The Candy Store in Northern California the home of many beautiful classic cars.

Bobby Unser and Parnelli Jones were fascinating, they told some great stories from their racing days.

Parnelli Jones has six Indy 500 wins and he reminded us that he is the oldest living Indy 500 winner and right behind him is Bobby Unser. Unser won the Indy 500 three times and the Pikes Peak race a record 13 times. These two legends have many more race successes and important contributions to motor sport than I can list here.

This event was a benefit for Racing In America which is part of The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.

The Henry Ford Museum sounds like a great place for car lovers to visit and Racing In America sounds like an organization worthy of our attention and support.

Below are pictures of the venue at The Candy Store.
