Cars Yeah with Mark Greene

Johnny Unser is a spokesperson and technical advisor for Cooper Tires. For over 15 years he has worked with various departments within Cooper Tires including design, testing, motorsports, advertising, marketing, and sales. If the Unser name sound familiar, it should. Johnny is the son of the late Jerry Unser, the first Unser to race at the Indianapolis 500. Johnny’s uncles, Bobby Sr., Al Sr., and cousin Al Jr. all continued the tradition compiling nine wins at Indy. Johnny began racing after college and qualified for the Indianapolis 500 in five consecutive years. He is a veteran of five Indy 500’s, has won championships in the American IndyCar series and he won the 12 Hours of Sebring. He competed in the 24 Hours of Daytona eight times and finished second in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. He also won the grueling ALCAN 5000 mile rally three times. Johnny recently opened Unser Racing and Entertainment in Denver, a premier indoor karting facility and corporate conference center.
