Rick Ware Racing, making its fourth start in the Indy 500 with the No. 51 entry, welcomes back BioHaven as an anchor sponsor for the third-consecutive year. RWR is thrilled to continue its successful partnership with Dale Coyne Racing, and chase Rookie of the Year honors with driver Sting Ray Robb.
The first driver RWR had behind the wheel of its No. 51 entry was James Davidson in 2020. Following him were Pietro Fittipaldi (2021) and Takuma Sato (2022), a two-time winner of the Indy 500 in 2017 and 2020.
The prestigious crown jewel event for the NTT IndyCar Series takes place on the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend at the 2.5-mile quad-oval of Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
“This race is such an incredible event filled with so much history,” said Rick Ware, team co-owner. “We have learned so much through the past three years and we’re ready to apply all that knowledge to this year’s race. We are looking forward to seeing how Sting Ray Robb and the No. 51 BioHaven-Goodheart team perform at The Brickyard during the next 12 days.
“Speaking of BioHaven, I can’t thank them enough for being part of our IndyCar efforts the last two seasons. They are an industry leader, which fits well with participating in an iconic event like the Indy 500.”
