When Corvette Racing’s yellow C7.Rs take to the Circuit of the Americas this weekend, they will be adorned with remembrances that salute two race car drivers who have passed away recently.
Corvette Racing tweeted out the photo showing the stickers on the side quarter window of the No.3 Corvette C7.R just in front of the LED class position lights.
The first sticker remembers IndyCar driver Justin Wilson who died on August 24th after sustaining a head injury during the Verizon IndyCar race on August 23rd at Pocono Raceway. That sticker shows Wilson’s helmet and has the hashtag of #BadAssWilson.
The second remembrance is for Dick Guldstrand which shows his name and the years 1927-2015. Guldstrand, who was known as Mr. Corvette, was a Corvette racing legend and member of the Corvette Hall of Fame. Dick passed away at the age of 87.
Corvette Racing fans everywhere are appreciative of this gesture to remember these two great racecar drivers. God Speed Justin and Dick!
