Indy Racing Northern Light Series driver, Al Unser Jr., and Daughter Cody Unser will display the Cody Unser First Step Foundation logo on Al Unser Jr.'s Galles ECR Racing Tickets.com Starz Encore Superpak car. The logo will be displayed on Unser's car throughout the 2000 Indy Racing season.

Unser is eager to gain awareness for Transverse Myletis, the paralyzing disease that struck his 13 year-old daughter, Cody, last year. Cody has been extremely active with the foundation, and was presented with a commendation on February 4 by the New Mexico State Legislature for her work to combat paralysis and generate public awareness of Transverse Myelitis.

Unser hopes that carrying the logo on his Galles ECR Racing car will help build on that awareness.
