ALBUQUERQUE, NM--(Marketwired - Jun 2, 2014) - Enerpulse Technologies Inc. (OTCQX: ENPT) announced today that Pulstar® Pulse Plugs Performance Expert Al Unser Jr., will race again at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway in a Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) event. Unser Jr., a two-time winner of the prestigious Indianapolis 500, will compete in the "Indy Legends Pro-Am" on June 8 at 12:30 pm on Indy's road course.
Unser Jr. will sign autographs at the Pulstar booth on Saturday, June 7 and Sunday, June 8 from 2 to 3 p.m. The Pulstar booth is located at Garage 21, Gasoline Alley, Corridor "C." In addition, race fans will have the chance to enter a raffle at the Pulstar booth to win an Unser Jr. signed Pulstar pit crew shirt.
According to SVRA, the 40-minute race of American muscle cars will include 1967 to 1972 vintage Corvettes, Camaros and Mustangs. The Indianapolis 500 veterans will be paired with amateur drivers, each taking a 20-minute stint. Five minutes will be allotted for driver change. Several other "500″ veterans will join Unser in the feature, including nine-time Indy starter Lyn St. James, Indy Racing League stalwart Mark Dismore, and Willy T. Ribbs, the first African-American driver to ever qualify for the "500."
"I'm excited to get back to Indy to race," explained Unser Jr. "My family and I have had a lot of success there and it will be fun to compete against some of the veterans that I went head to head with during my competitive race days. I'm also excited to represent Pulstar and let people know about my new partnership with the company."
Unser Jr. is assisting Enerpulse in delivering automotive enthusiasts improved vehicle power and performance. He recently installed Pulstar Pulse Plugs in his 2011 Chevy Suburban LTZ and noted an increase of two miles per gallon (MPG). In addition, dyno testing showed Unser Jr. had gained 5 in horsepower.
Pulstar Pulse Plugs use an integrated capacitor that stores and compresses electrical energy to intensify the spark. This process increases fuel economy and engine performance -- a revolutionary benefit unattainable by any conventional spark plugs on the market.
