Robby Unser makes his Goodguys AutoCross debut at the Goodguys Lone Star Nationals in Ft. Worth, Texas. Unser’s appearance represents Speedway Motors’ first foray into Goodguys AutoCross competition.

Robby Unser will pilot the Speedway Motors G-Comp ’65 Nova outfitted with Speedway Motor’s new G-Comp Front Suspension Kit and a full complement of AFCO coil-over shocks in Goodguys AutoCross competition..

The Nova has a BluePrint 454-cid Pro Series small-block V-8 backed by a Tremec five-Speed transmission and features a host of aftermarket performance parts from Billet Specialties, Dynatech, MSD, ProCar and Weld Racing.

Unser hails from one of America’s most storied racing families. The son of Indianapolis 500 champ Bobby Unser and nephew of Al Unser (another Indy 500 winner), Robby began go-kart racing at age 8. By his teens he was racing stock cars, sprint cars and Formula Fords. Unser won the American IndyCar Series title in 1989 and has raced in the Indy 500 twice, earning IRL’s Rookie of the Year honor in 1998. He’s won the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb nine times, competed in Formula D drifting events and also worked as a driving coach.

In addition to powering the Nova through the Goodguys AutoCross course, Unser will be available for autographs at the Speedway Motors Big Rig and in the AutoCross pit area. Watch for him at upcoming Goodguys events in Charlotte, North Carolina; Pleasanton, California; and Scottsdale, Arizona.
