Robby Unser Ready to Take PetroMoly/Team Pelfrey To a Win at Indy 500Robby Unser, the IRL's Rookie of the Year says he's ready to take the PEP Boys Indy Racing League's Team Pelfrey "PetroMoly Race Car" to a win at the Indianapolis 500 during the Memorial Day weekend.
"The PetroMoly Race Car is running fast and strong," Unser said. "My speeds all across the board were tight. And only three drivers have turned in faster lap times than me. During qualifying, I ran a four lap average of 221.304 mph for the total time for the run of 2:42:672. Even with the bad weather we experienced, it was a consistent run. The straightaways were slow, but we managed to qualify in the 6th row, in the 17th position."
"Team Pelfrey and I are focused on winning the Indy 500 this year. I know we can do it!"
Lance J. Rosmarin, President of Worldwide PetroMoly said, "We've seen Robby do an outstanding job with the PetroMoly Race Car at every race so far this year. Team Pelfrey has the entire car tuned to absolute perfection. Add in the engine performance advantages that PetroMoly oil adds to the equation, I think we have an excellent shot at the Winners Circle this year."
Worldwide PetroMoly, Inc. manufactures, markets and distributes high-performance lubricants for use in all types of motor vehicles, compressor engines and high-technology INDY style race engines. PetroMoly products incorporate a new patent-approved process technology called molytech(TM). These products contain stable and suspended molybdenum disulfide (moly), a hard and extremely low-friction metal, which fills in the micro-porous, crater-like surfaces of pistons, rings and cylinder walls. This creates a more efficient engine environment and prevents metal-to-metal contact, thereby reducing friction, heat and wear. Moly is a slick and powerful antioxidant, known to have the world's lowest coefficient for friction. Worldwide PetroMoly is a sponsor in the Pep Boys Indy Racing League.
