ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- Pulstar® Pulse Plugs Performance Expert Al Unser Jr. returned to the winner's circle at the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the June 8 Charity Indy Legends Pro-Am Race. Unser Jr., and his amateur partner Peter Klutt, took the top prize on the track's road course in the marquee event of the three day inaugural SVRA Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational.
"What a thrill to be back in the winner's circle at Indy," said Unser Jr. on the victory. "I also loved the opportunity to represent Pulstar Pulse Plugs during this historic race. I want to thank Pulstar for organizing a couple of great autograph sessions that gave me the opportunity to connect with fans."
Unser Jr., a two-time winner of the prestigious Indianapolis 500, participated in the 45-minute race that paired former Indy 500 drivers with amateurs to race vintage, 1963-1972 Chevrolet Camaros, Chevrolet Corvettes and Ford Mustangs. Unser and Klutt, president of Legendary Motorcar Co. and a former TV show host, drove Klutt's 1969 Corvette to the win. Unser was one of 24 Indy 500 veterans in the field that included drivers Eliseo Salazar (who finished second with Gary Moore), Willy T. Ribbs (third place winner with Ed Sevadjian), Buddy Lazier, Scott Goodyear, Mark Dismore, Robby Unser and Lyn St. James.
During the weekend event, Unser Jr. signed autographs at the Pulstar booth in Garage Alley where race fans had the chance to enter a raffle to win an Unser Jr. signed Pulstar pit crew shirt.
As a consumer advocate for Enerpulse Technologies Inc. (OTCQX: ENPT), Unser Jr. is assisting the company in delivering automotive enthusiasts improved vehicle power and performance.
