Stefan Wilson will race in the Indianapolis 500 this year with Andretti Autosport.

Wilson, 31, contested his second Indy 500 with Andretti back in 2018 finishing 15th (below), where he ran up front until having to pit for fuel late on.

He has two more IndyCar starts, one at Baltimore in 2013 with Dale Coyne Racing and his maiden Indy 500 with KVSH in 2016 when he finished 28th.

“After leading laps with Andretti Autosport at the Indianapolis 500 in 2018, I’m hungry to return and finish the job,” said Wilson, brother of the late indyCar race winner and Formula 1 driver Justin Wilson.

“I’ve worked tirelessly to make this return happen and I am so thankful that LOHLA SPORT [sponsor] has believed in me to represent them.

“It’s a dream come true to rejoin Andretti and also partner with Honda once more in the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.”

Team boss Michael Andretti added: “We’re excited to not only welcome Stefan back to the team, but also to have a new partner in LOHLA SPORT come on board to experience their first Indy 500.

“We have a great history with the Wilson family and we’re hopeful we can build on successes we’ve had in the past this May.”

Wilson – who raced in last year’s IndyCar iRacing Challenge – joins Marco Andretti, Colton Herta, James Hinchcliffe, Ryan Hunter-Reay and Alexander Rossi in the team’s six-car line-up.
