ALBUQUERQUE, NM--(Marketwired - May 23, 2014) - Enerpulse Technologies Inc. (OTCQX: ENPT) announced today that racing legend Al Unser Jr. has joined the company as its Pulstar® Pulse Plugs Performance Expert. Unser Jr., a two-time winner of the prestigious Indianapolis 500, will be a consumer advocate for Enerpulse; assisting Enerpulse in delivering automotive enthusiasts improved vehicle power and performance.
"When I initially tried the Pulstar plugs in my 2011 Chevy Suburban LTZ I noticed an increase of two miles per gallon (MPG) and dyno testing showed that I had picked up 5 horsepower," explained Unser Jr. "I could really feel the power, all just by changing my spark plugs."
Unlike conventional spark plugs, 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.
Unser Jr. is a two-time IndyCar Series champion and has 34 IndyCar wins. He was the winner of both the Indy 500 and the Series championship in 1994. Unser Jr. was inducted into the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America in 2009.
"I am extremely excited by this partnership," according to Unser Jr. "I am not a physicist, but I do know a thing or two about getting the most power from your engine; and the performance improvement I experienced with Pulstar Pulse Plugs is nothing short of amazing."
Unser Jr. will participate in the 2014 Indianapolis 500 as a race team coach for KV Racing. He will return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway from June 6 to 8, where he will race in the "Indy Legends Pro-Am" feature that will be part of the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association's Brickyard Invitational weekend.
