Bobby Unser was enjoying the early years of retirement when Audi placed a call to his home in New Mexico.The German brand had an intriguing sales pitch for the Indy 500 legend to consider: head to the deep south—NASCAR’s Central Church of Alabama, better known as Talladega Speedway—apply his renown chassis development skills to an underperforming project, and then set speed records above 200mph with a heavily modified 5000 CS Quattro.The three-time Indy winner completed that promotional task with ease in March of 1986.
