Vision Racing team drivers Ed Carpenter and Ryan Hunter-Reay, ambassadors for the Wellness Tour, are encouraging fans to get in the driver's seat when it comes to managing their health by visiting the Wellness Tour Unit.
"At Vision Racing, we're known for our skills on the racetrack, but our commitment to the fans extends off the track as well," said Vision Racing Owner Tony George. "Along with Lilly's continued support, we can raise awareness about diabetes and improve the health and well-being of our communities, one race at a time."
Throughout the month of May, the Wellness Tour will provide three days of free diabetes testing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, culminating with the Indianapolis 500 on May 24. Additionally, during the 2009 season, the Wellness Tour will travel to IndyCar Series races in West Allis, Wis.; Fort Worth, Texas; Newton, Iowa; Richmond, Va.; and Lexington, Ohio.
