(ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.) - Retired race car driver and two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Al Unser Jr. has pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated and racing on a New Mexico freeway.

Unser entered his plea Wednesday in Albuquerque Metro Court, a day before he was set to go to trial for aggravated DWI, drag racing and reckless driving.

He was sentenced to 90 days in jail but a judge deferred jail time in favor of 364 days of supervised probation.

Unser was arrested in September after he was accused of racing another car in his Suburban and driving over 100 miles per hour near Albuquerque. He was charged with reckless driving and aggravated driving while intoxicated.

His attorney, Sam Bregman, said Unser completed 30 days of inpatient treatment for alcohol abuse.
