INDIANAPOLIS – Motorsports legends Al Unser Sr. and Al Unser Jr. will headline the Grand Opening Breakfast presented by MAVTV at the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show on Dec. 6.
Hosted by distinguished racing journalist and broadcaster Dave Despain, the breakfast takes place immediately before the PRI Show opens its doors for the three biggest business days in racing. Despain will interview the Unsers in a casual, talk show-style setting, where they will share personal stories and experiences for an audience of more than 3,000 industry professionals.
“We are excited to kick off the 2018 PRI Show with not only one, but two Indy 500 winners,” said PRI General Manager Bill Miller. “The insights and stories shared by these legendary racers will make for a very entertaining breakfast, led by the great Dave Despain.”
During his legendary racing career, Unser Sr. won the Indianapolis 500 four times and earned three Indy car championships (1970, 1983, and 1985).
In 1990, Unser Jr. joined his father as a series champion before joining him as an Indy 500 winner in 1992. The younger Unser went on to win a second series championship in 1994, a season in which he also won the second Indy 500 of his career.
The Grand Opening Breakfast is offered exclusively to PRI attendees. The event, which includes a hot catered meal, takes place in the Indiana Convention Center’s Sagamore Ballroom. Doors open at 7 a.m., and the program begins at 8 a.m.
PRI attendees are admitted to the breakfast free of charge, but guests are advised to arrive early, as seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
This year’s PRI Trade Show will feature over 1,100 companies exhibiting in more than 3,300 booths, showcasing the latest developments in auto racing technology.
