Canadian Paul Tracy’s KV Racing Technology car will be sponsored by the Ontario Honda Dealers Association, and will support Wounded Warriors.ca., at the Honda Indy Toronto, July 12 on the streets of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Tracy, the 2003 Champ Car World Series champion, is one of the most successful and exciting drivers in the history of open-wheel racing.  The native of Scarborough, Ontario, Canada, will pilot the #15 Ontario Honda Dealers – Wounded Warriors.ca – KV Racing Technology Honda/Dallara/Firestone machine.

“We are extremely pleased that Paul Tracy will pilot a KV Racing Technology entry with sponsorship from the Ontario Honda Dealers Association in support of Wounded Warriors.ca,” said KVRT co-owner Jimmy Vasser.  “Having Paul drive in front of his countrymen with an organization like Wounded Warriors.ca on the sidepods of a KVRT car is an honor and a privilege.  I personally want to thank the Ontario Honda Dealers Association for making this possible.”         

Brian Tafler of the Ontario Honda Dealers Association said, “To have the Indy return to Toronto, sponsored by Honda, and not have Paul Tracy racing didn’t make sense to us.   So we decided to sponsor Paul.  When someone brought up the idea of supporting our Canadian troops, the decision to do that was both immediate and unanimous.  We have young men and women in harm’s way in foreign lands.  Not all come back unscathed.  We wanted to help those in need of numerous forms of assistance.  That’s why we decided to join with Wounded Warriors.ca to help bring awareness to their cause and to help raise funds for them during the Honda Indy Toronto race weekend.”
