Loctite Honors 1997 Indy 500 Winner Luyendyk With Trophy And Cash Prize

    INDIANAPOLIS, May 28 -- Each year Loctite Corporation,
worldwide producer of specialty adhesives and sealants, presents the winning
driver of the Indy 500 with a cash prize and a trophy that is displayed
year-round in the Indianapolis 500 Museum.
    The company also awards cash prizes to the owner of the winning car and
chief mechanic and to the pole winner.
    The trophy and awards, which total $20,000, were presented today to Arie
Luyendyk who won the annual classic with an average speed of 145.827 mph.
Luyendyk's G-Force/Aurora finished a half-second ahead of second-place
finisher Scott Goodyear in one of the closest finishes in Indy history.
Luyendyk also won the 1990 Indy 500 at a record average speed of 185.981 mph,
a mark that still stands.
    For the past 25 years, all cars competing in the Indy 500, including every
winner, have been assembled with Loctite high-performance adhesives and
sealants throughout their engines, transmissions, electronic systems, and
frames.  The modern Indy car rolls onto the track with some 70 Loctite
applications.
    Headquartered in Hartford, Conn., Loctite has 4,300 employees and operates
production facilities throughout the world.
