Stewart To Sponsor Car In '500'

Schmidt Peterson Motorsports announced Tuesday morning a joint venture with Tony Stewart for the team's No. 77 entry in May's Indianapolis 500.

The entry will come in the form of Team One Cure, an initiative setup by The Tony Stewart Foundation. The project is meant to create awareness of the Colorado Sate University Flint Animal Cancer Center (FACC) and their work on cancer treatments for both people and pets.

“We learned that with the One Cure program, cancer treatment breakthroughs are happening through collaboration between scientists and doctors working with both people and pets,” Stewart said. “It perfectly fits with my foundation’s missions to help children and animals. Sam Schmidt represents the very best in an injured racer overcoming adversity, plus we share the passion to win at IMS.”

According to the SPM release, the driver will be announced soon.
