As I noted in early April Toronto driver Paul Tracy will race a partial 2011 season with Jay Penske’s Dragon racing team, which includes five races with two of those races being the Edmonton and Toronto IndyCar events. It was just announced that Honda Canada Inc. has jumped back on board to sponsor Paul for the 3rd year in the both Honda Indy Toronto and Edmonton races. They will also continue their support of the Make-A-Wish Canada Foundation.
The Scarborough driver, who continues to fight for his rides, will race in the car known simply as the #8 make-A-Wish Canada/Dragon Racing/Honda/Dallara/Firestone car! And I will know it as #8, or in a hurry, 8. By the way, can you imagine what one of these cars cost to fill up at the pumps?
The Make-A-Wish Canada Foundation raises money to help children with life-threatening medical conditions receive a magical wish. Last year fans and Honda Canada, with matching dollar-for-dollar donations, raised over $100,000 and hopes to do much better this year.
