Ed Carpenter Racing announced on Froday that Christian Rasmussen who will make his Indianapolis 500 debut on Sunday will drive the No.33 Riley Children’s Foundation Chevrolet in The Greatest Spectacle In Racing.

Speaking about the news team owner Ed Carpenter said:

“Riley Children’s Foundation does such incredible work in the Indianapolis community and no one deserves this recognition more. We are proud to present them with the primary partnership location on our No. 33 Chevrolet. With the Riley wagon visible around the world this Sunday, we hope kids in Indiana and beyond will be rewarded with the chance to thrive.”

This May, Riley Children’s Foundation teamed up with INDYCAR and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to launch Racers for Riley. All are working together to raise money for Riley kids and families as part of the centennial celebration of Riley Children’s Health. Money raised helps Riley kids have access to the best care, support and opediatric research.

Riley Children’s Foundation President and CEO Elizabeth Elkas said:

Throughout our long relationship, Ed Carpenter Racing has raised awareness about children’s health issues, highlighted Riley’s life-saving work on one of the world’s biggest stages and given scores of Riley kids a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit the track and meet their racing heroes. “We are incredibly grateful to the team for always making kids a priority, and for prominently displaying the Riley wagon at this year’s race.”
