Team One Cure Entry for the
May 28th Indianapolis 500
One of Tony’s favorite race tracks, the famed oval of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) is the focus of Team One Cure for the Month of May 2017. Alongside other initiatives, Team One Cure has entered the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 scheduled for Sunday, May 28th. Veteran racer, Jay Howard, will pilot the No. 77 for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports.
Like Tony, Jay Howard started racing go-karts at 7 years of age although “across the pond” in his native England. Like Stewart, Howard has open-wheel experience at IMS and is poised to race as an advocate for people and pets battling cancer while pursuing a victory for Team One Cure. The racers also share a deep love for children and animals – making Howard the perfect choice to represent Team One Cure.
A few sponsorship opportunities are available to support the No. 77 Team One Cure entry and receive not only a customized benefits package but the satisfaction of helping fund research for comparative oncology. IMS is hugely supportive of the Team One Cure initiative, as is Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, and so there’s a rare win-win opportunity for a handful of partners to “join the Team”.

In March, the Foundation will introduce a web site dedicated for the Team One Cure Program. It’s just that important! Stay tuned as we’ll announce the site through social media, our e-newsletter and on this primary Tony Stewart Foundation web site.
