Mario Annicchiarico of the Edmonton Journal wrote a story yesterday about Paul Tracy and his future plans to help up-and-coming Canadian drivers.
Stefan Rzadzinski appears to be the first driver in line.
Tracy says he would like to get Rzadzinski behind the wheel of an Indy Lights car for the Grand Prix of Edmonton, and perhaps a few more road course events this season.
Rzadzinski, 18, was named Ontario Formula Ford “Rookie of the Year” in 2009 and won a full Skip Barber regional scholarship at last winter’s Skip Barber Karting Scholarship Shootout.
He made good use of the opportunity last weekend, winning Race 2 at Virginia International Raceway in the Skip Barber Summer Series after starting eighth.
His next race is scheduled for May 19-22 at Watkins Glen International.
This is great news for young Canadian drivers and certainly nice to see Tracy giving back to the sport. Stay tuned for future updates on this program.
