When you have been racing IndyCars your whole career, perhaps you would be ready for a change of scene?  So many have been curious about Al Unser Jr.’s attraction to driving the ZAP Alias electric car in the Automotive X PRIZE and we examine some of his recent interviews.  As Edmunds.com writes, the race for the 100 MPGe Automotive X PRIZE is ‘oh so quiet‘ and this is part of the attraction for Unser.  Earth2Tech asked Unser if he missed the roar of the engine?  “Not at all,” says Unser.  Many have speculated that Unser is doing it because it is the green, environmental thing to do.  Perhaps they don’t know Unser very well, nor his family, who have been driving all kinds of automobiles and pushing automotive innovation for over 100 years.  EarthTechling looked into Unser’s latest interest: electric cars.  Also, long-time Unser fan Ronald Ahrens spent some time on the ground with the man at Michigan International Speedway.  Learn more about the racing legend and why he’s so charged up about EVs.
