Foyt Releases A Statement Following The Death Of His Friend Al Unser

Four-time Indianapolis 500 winner and NTT IndyCar Series team owner AJ Foyt has released the following statement following the death of his friend and fellow four-time Indianapolis 500 winner Al Unser:

“I was really sorry to hear about Al Unser. “We were able to catch up in July at the 4-time winners deal [photo shoot] we did at Indy and I’m glad for that. I always thought a lot of Al, even when he first came to Indy. That’s why I was happy to give him his first ride there. He was a nice person and well-respected because he was a cool, smart race driver. Always knew what he was doing, knew how to take care of a car. He was very smart and when he was winning you had to be because racing was a lot more dangerous back then. I always had a lot of respect for Al. It’s a sad day.”
