Honda in Partnership with Indiana Donor Network

Wilson is set to return to the iconic field of 33 in May as the British-native
will take the wheel of the No. 25 Driven2SaveLives Andretti Honda for the 102nd
Running of the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race. As the fifth entry for Andretti
Autosport, Wilson will join teammates Alexander Rossi, Marco Andretti, Ryan
Hunter-Reay and Zach Veach. 

“I’m very excited to be officially joining the Andretti
Autosport team for the 102nd Indy 500,”
Wilson. “It has been a roller-coaster
ride to get here, but when looking back, I’m really pleased and feel very
fortunate to be in the spot I’m in now. I’ve just kept thinking about the
future, knowing that I’d be joining one of the most successful teams in

“We’re really happy to
welcome Stefan back to Andretti Autosport and proud to see him running the No.
said Michael
Andretti. “While not on track, Stefan was
a big part of our Indy 500 effort in 2017, and we’re looking forward to getting
him back behind the wheel at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.”

In his third Verizon

“Ultimately, we are working to register more donors,” said Wilson. “Organ donation
and transplantation is a cause I’m connected to through the loss of Justin, who
saved five lives. We’ll be working with Driven2SaveLives to provide hope to
patients on the national wait list, and honor donor heroes.”

Since inception,
more than 1,000 individuals have made the decision to register as an organ,
tissue and eye donor as a result of the Driven2SaveLives campaign. 118,000
people nationwide are waiting for a lifesaving organ donation. 

“Stefan is

holds 32 starts in the Indy Lights series, including 14 starts, and two wins
and five podiums, with the Andretti Autosport Indy Lights stable in 2011.

Wilson, Andretti Autosport and I won a few [Indy Lights] races together
but came up short in the 2011 championship hunt. Since then, my career has been
a bit of a rocky road. It’s taken a tremendous amount of determination, and
that determination only grew stronger when we lost Justin. In a way, I feel
like I’m racing for him as much as I am for myself. I do want to succeed in my
own career and prove that I belong, but also, I want to do something he never
got the chance to, I want to win the Indy 500. That’s part of what drives me.

I really want to thank Mark
Miles, Doug Boles, Michael Andretti and the rest of the Andretti Autosport
organization. A lot of the agreements were initially done in good faith, and
I’m very thankful for all the effort that has brought us here.”
