Creative Quotations from . . .
Al Unser, Jr.
(1962-____) born on
Apr 19
US auto racer. "Little Al" won the Indianapolis 500 by .043 second, closest finish in race's history.
Dad taught me everything I know. Unfortunately, he didn't teach me everything he knows.

Besides winning, [the most fun thing is] getting out there and mixing it up with friends; it's the competition.
In that first race [Indy 1982] I lapped A.J [Foyt] . . . I lapped Gordon [Johncock] and I passed my Dad -- it was like I lost something. It was the day I knew I was one of them I couldn't look at them that way ever again.
Every race I run in is in preparation for the Indianapolis 500. Indy is the most important thing in my life. It is what I live for.
I don't want to get into anything that would only be half-way. If we're going to commit to it, then we're going to commit to it all the way.
