Stefan Wilson Qualifies No. 24 Dreyer & Reinbold Racing Cusick Motorsports CareKeepers Chevrolet For 107th Running of the Indianapolis 500

(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.”
“We’re really happy with the effort put in by Stefan Wilson and Dreyer & Reinbold Racing to get us to this point,” said Don Cusick, Founder & CEO of Cusick Motorsports. “We saw a lot of big names on the bubble of making the show, and some big names eliminated, but we are solidly in the field. The No. 24 Dreyer & Reinbold Racing Cusick Motorsports CareKeepers Chevrolet had a little more to speed to unlock in qualifying, but we have a lot to show on race day. We are starting on the ninth row from the inside, but I feel like we can move the car up pretty quick and show what we can do.”
Race preparations continue with a practice session on Monday, May 22nd from 1 to 3pm ET followed by the final practice on Carb Day – Friday, May 26th from 11am to 1pm ET.
