IndyCar: Wilson feels back to full fitness

By

IndyCar race winner Justin Wilson is confident he is back to full fitness in the wake of injuries sustained in last year’s series finale.

Wilson, who confirmed last week that Dale Coyne Racing had exercised its option on his services for 2014, says that he had no physical issues in the Rolex 24 at Daytona last weekend. The TUDOR United SportsCar Championship opener was the 35-year-old’s first race back after fracturing his pelvis at Fontana last October.

“Up to the race, I’d never done more than eight laps in a row, so I was a little nervous going into it,” admitted Wilson, who drove a Michael Shank Racing Riley Ford DP at Daytona. “I always felt that I had the fitness back, but you can never be sure until you yourself in a race situation. It felt good and I had no after-effects.”

Wilson is scheduled to get back behind the wheel of Coyne’s IndyCar during the Sebring pre-season test, which begins on Feb. 3.
