(Indianapolis, IN) May 22, 2023 – In a weekend that saw the highest qualifying speeds in the history of the Indianapolis 500 and legendary names bumped from the field, Stefan Wilson qualified the No. 24 Dreyer & Reinbold Racing Cusick Motorsports CareKeepers Chevrolet 25th for the 107th Running of the Indianapolis 500. Wilson took three qualifying attempts during Saturday’s qualifying session, eventually securing an inside spot for Row 9 on the grid with an average four-lap speed of 231.648 MPH.
“I am really thankful to everyone at Dreyer & Reinbold Racing and Cusick Motorsports for producing an amazing car,” said Wilson after completing the fastest qualifying run of his career to date. “I am a little disappointed as I made a small mistake on that final run and it cost us a couple of places on the grid, and I feel like this car deserved to be a little higher and closer to where my teammate Ryan [Hunter-Reay] is going to start. It’ll make things a little more challenging in the race coming from 25th, but we feel really confident with the race car and race trim. We’ll be giving it all we’ve got on race day.”
