Race car driver Charlie Kimball, the first and only licensed driver with diabetes in the history of the Indy Racing League to race at the highest level of the Series, was nominated this week for the Firestone Tire-iffic Award. He was nominated for capitalizing on his best qualifying effort to run up front and finish 11th in The Honda Indy™ 200 at Mid-Ohio this past Sunday.
The award comes with a cash prize and if Charlie wins, he plans to donate a portion of the money to the diabetes community.
But the competition is steep — Charlie is up against Ganassi teammate and former Indycar champion, Scott Dixon and is currently running “neck and neck” for votes with fellow Rookie, James Hinchcliffe.
Please go to the www.indycar.com home page (bottom right) & vote for Charlie Kimball in the Firestone Tire-iffic Award.
The voting deadline is EOD this Thursday, August 11.
