“We are thrilled to announce Sir Jackie Stewart will be honored at the RRDC’s annual legends dinner. The Formula One World Champion’s career-long dedication to safety has been invaluable to the sport,” said Rahal. “We are also pleased to support Race for Dementia, a cause that is close to Sir Jackie’s heart.”

He will become the 14th legend to be recognized by the RRDC and will join such racing icons as Dan Gurney, Mario Andretti, David Hobbs, Roger Penske and Jacky Ickx.
