IndyCar Series drivers Josef Newgarden and Justin Wilson will compete on a different playing field as they maneuver 120lb robots to shoot 2’ diameter exercise balls into “goalie zones.”

Driver of the No. 19 Dale Coyne Racing Honda Dallara, Wilson will be partnering with FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC®) Team “Robowranglers,” from Greenville High School, Greenville, TX. The team will be bringing their robot Vader to the match.

Driver of the No. 67 Sara Fisher Hartman Racing Honda Dallara, Newgarden will join the local favorites, Clear Creek Independent School District’s FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC®) Team “Robonauts” and their robot Recoil.

Great friends away from the track Newgarden and Wilson are fierce competitors in their Indy cars and will likely carry that over when they go head-to-head in the robotics contest. The driver whose team finishes second in Saturday’s battle will have to make good on a pre-determined wager prior to Sunday’s race.

Both drivers have been supporters of FIRST robotics since 2013 and believe robotics and motorsports show young people the “cool factor” in STEM studies.
