EDMONTON - It’s kind of a wash when it comes to making wishes come true.

Canada’s Paul Tracy wished to race in a sixth consecutive Edmonton IndyCar race and Honda Canada granted him his wish. And while he’s here, as will be the case at the Honda Indy Toronto, Tracy will raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

“I want to thank Honda Canada, Kevin Kalkoven and Jimmy Vasser for the opportunity to race in front of Canadian fans,” said Tracy in the first of a two press conference day here Monday.

“I am not racing full time and it’s a great thing giving me a chance to race in Canada and do it for a cause like this.

“Racing is a pretty selfish sport but doing it for a cause has given me great satisfaction. I am proud to be able to support and raise awareness for this organization that assists Canada’s children in need of wishes coming true.”

Last year Tracy raised $56,021 for Wounded Warriors, a figure matched by Honda Canada. The project will work the same this year with donations at the track and a chance to sign the drivers’ suit Tracy will wear in the race.
