Justin Wilson's race car will return to the track for the IndyCar season finale.

Andretti Autosport announced Thursday that series veteran Oriol Servia will drive Wilson's No. 25 Honda at Sonoma Raceway this weekend.

Wilson died Monday, a day after a piece of debris from another car struck him in the head at Pocono Raceway.

"Justin was a true racer and advocate to our sport," team owner Michael Andretti said. "We will have Justin and his family in our hearts this weekend as we honor him in the way he would want us to, by doing what he loved — racing."

Servia and Wilson were close friends, which makes Servia's task "so difficult on so many levels for obvious reasons."

"I am honored and emotional with the opportunity of driving his car this weekend," he added.
