BOBBY UNSER, along with his younger brother, Al, belongs to one of the most famous racecar families in America. He won the Indianapolis 500 three times–in 1968, 1975, and 1981. Unser’s list of achievements in the sport is quite impressive: he had thirty-five career Indy wins; was the first driver to record a 200 mph qualifying average speed in Indy car competition, career winnings of nearly $3 million (in an era where prizes were much smaller than today), and was inducted in the International Motorsports Hall of Fame, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame, the Novi Motorsports Hall of Fame, the Sprint Car Hall of Fame, and the Pikes Peak Hall of Fame. In addition, Unser has served as ABC’s chief analyst for the network’s Indy 500 telecasts and has served as a spokesman for numerous corporations including Audi, IBM, GM, Goodyear Tire, and Mobil Oil. He speaks at about forty corporate events annually. Behind the scenes on the racing circuit, he is still involved as an advisor to many in the racing business.
PAUL PEASE runs a corporate consulting and training business whose clients include Rockwell Automation, Blue Shield, and Hyatt Hotels. He is the author of two leadership books and has also written for various industry trade magazines.
