Indy 500 Veterans, Next Generation of Unsers Enjoy Podium Finishes on Final Day of Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational

Two Indianapolis 500 veterans were among the podium finishers Sunday as the fourth annual Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational wrapped up with races in all 12 groups of the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

1992 Indianapolis 500 Rookie of the Year Lyn St. James teamed up with Bruce Hamilton to win the 9F1 class of the Historic GT/GTP Enduro in the No. 85 2008 Dallara Infinity, placing third overall in the 90-minute race. The St. James-Hamilton team turned the quickest lap of the race, 1 minute, 25.927 seconds on the 14-turn, 2.439-mile IMS road course.

Five-time “500” starter Dennis Firestone placed second in the 2CF class of the Group 2 Feature Race 2 in his No. 10 1976 Crossle Formula Ford. Firestone finished fifth overall in the eight-lap race.

A new chapter of the Unser family legacy at IMS also was written Sunday. Loni Unser, the 19-year-old daughter of Indy 500 veteran Johnny Unser, won the 3CP class of the Vintage/Classic Endurance Race with teammate Marcus Pillion in the No. 8 1960 Porsche 356B Coupe.

Gar Robinson won the TA2 class feature race for Trans Am presented by Pirelli from the pole in the No. 74 Pura Vida Tequila/74 Ranch Resort Chevrolet Camaro. Robinson triumphed by 3.379 seconds over runner-up Dillon Machavern in the 42-lap race.

Adam Andretti, the younger brother of Indianapolis 500 and Brickyard 400 veteran John Andretti, finished sixth in the No. 44 ECC/Anchor Bolt & Screw Dodge Challenger in the TA2 race.
