Andretti Autosport gives Justin Wilson 2-race deal that includes Indianapolis 500

Justin Wilson will race in the Indianapolis 500 for Andretti Autosport.

The British driver doesn't have a full-time ride in IndyCar this season, but on Friday announced a two-race deal with Andretti. He'll drive the No. 25 Honda in the Grand Prix of Indianapolis and the Indianapolis 500.

Wilson is an 11-year veteran of the IndyCar Series. He has seven career wins and 26 podium finishes.

Andretti fields full-time cars for Marco Andretti, Carlos Munoz and reigning Indy 500 winner Ryan Hunter-Reay. The organization fielded five Indy 500 entries last year.

The team has a fourth car entered in Sunday's season-opening race, where Simona de Silvestro will drive for Andretti in a one-race deal.
