I looked at the rudyrucker blog and it's just a blog by someone who snapped that picture at a race. No info on the unicycle guy he is from or even what type if racing the team does (drag racing? stock? F1? Indy? ?).

Unfortunately his jacket has no terribly obvious signs on it, but the bridge to cross the track behind him suggetss it's not drag, stock or Indy .

I've ridden one of these a fair bit, and they're a lot of fun, get the tyre pumped up and you can do quick turns but it's easier to do big turns on it. The rim looks stupidly weak though, the seam looks like it's riveted together! You can see in the picture, near the bottom there's a little black tab, not sure what it is to be honest. It's definitely a novelty thing, but it would be interesting to see other designs/better quality. The purple/green paint it just awesome though!

Evidently some of the photos were taken during the 2005 and 2006 Champ Car race in San Jose.
