IndyCar team honors driver Bryan Clauson, organ donation

SPEEDWAY, Ind. (WISH) — The IndyCar Grand Prix kicks off Saturday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and fans at the track will be able to see a race team honoring driver Bryan Clauson.

Clauson, a Noblesville resident who had raced in IndyCar, died at the age of 27 in an August 2016 crash during the Belleville (Kansas) Midget Nationals USAC midget race. Clauson was an organ donor, and his organ donation saved five lives, according to the 

The Driven 2 Save Lives campaign raises awareness on the importance of organ donation. The Driven 2 Save Lives Education Garage is dedicated to organ, tissue and eye donation.

IndyCar Pippa Mann will drive a Clauson Marshall Racing entry this month featuring the Driven2SaveLives campaign.
