Ed Carpenter Racing announced on Wednesday that Rinus Veekay will drive the No.21 Bitcoin Chevrolet for the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on Sunday 30th May.

Ed Carpenter Racing has partnered with Strike to fundraise on behalf of the Bitcoin community and support all necessary on-track activities for the Month of May.  Strike will handle all payments and donations for the effort through its lighting network and payment application. The Bitcoin car is for the people and supported by the people. A unique QR code enables the world’s first peer-to-car contribution model allowing anyone in the world to donate. Bitcoin has a fixed supply at 21 million with no more to ever be made and ECR is honored to represent Bitcoin on the No. 21.
Speaking about the announcement, Jack Mallers, founder of Strike commented saying:
 “Ed’s message is simple; he doesn’t want to race for potato chips or soft drinks at the Indy 500. “This year, Ed is racing for human freedom, financial literacy, financial inclusivity, and is using the platform he’s earned throughout his career to promote the most powerful message possible in pushing humanity forward. We’re tremendously proud to support his efforts.”
Team owner Ed Carpenter says:
With the power of the Bitcoin community backing ECR in our 10th season of competition, our team is more than ready to attack the Indy 500 and capture our first Borg Warner Trophy. We want to kiss the bricks, drink the milk, then watch Bitcoin race past $100k!”
