Stefan Wilson is looking to run in his first Indy 500 this year in the 100th running of The Greatest Spectacle in Motorsports.
He has dedicated his entry to honor his late brother INDYCAR star racer Justin Wilson who died from injuries in a crash last August at The Pocono (PA) Raceway. Stefan’s entry is the #25 Driver2SaveLives-KVRT Chevrolet/Dallara/Firstone car with sponsorship from the Indiana Donor Network. Organs donated by his late brother remarkably gave life to five persons.
Stefan began his month of May program today (Wednesday) with a visit to patients at Indianapolis’ Peyton Manning St. Vincent Children’s Hospital as part of the Racing For Kids Program.
Bringing the excitement of VERIZON IndyCar racing to the youngster at the Indy hospital, Stefan signed autographs, talked about the Indy 500 and his career in motorsports and answered question from the young patients.,
The stop at Peyton Manning St. Vincent was Stefan’s second Racing For Kids hospital visit. His first visit was in Iowa with his brother Justin a longtime Racing For Kids Team member and the 2014 Racing For Kids Driver Of The Year.
The Wilson Family magic with kids was evident during the hospital stop. Just like Justin always did, Stefan left the hospital with a host of well wishes and a group of young new fans who surely now will be pulling for their new “favorite” driver when the green flag drops at The Indianapolis Motor Speedway on May 29.
