|Flat12 Partners with Schmidt Peterson for #GetWellSoonHinch
T-Shirt Campaign; Proceeds To Go To James Hinchcliffe Charity
Schmidt Peterson Motorsports and Flat12 Bierwerks are rallying around their IndyCar driver, James Hinchcliffe, after his involvement in a major crash at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Monday May 18. James is currently at IU Methodist Hospital, out of surgery, and is expected to make a full recovery.
Indianapolis Motor Speedway has officially ruled that Hinchcliffe will not be racing in the Indy 500 taking place Sunday, May 24. “Unfortunately, we can’t cheer for James this year, so we’re now cheering for all the drivers to have a safe and exciting race,” said Sean O’Connor, president of Flat12 Bierwerks.
In support of motorsport safety and James’ recovery, fans can pick up a #GetWellSoonHinch t-shirt at Flat12 to show their support for James. A portion of the proceeds of the limited edition t-shirts will go back to a charity of James’ choice. Hinchtown Hammerdown, James’ collaboration beer with Flat12, is also available at the Indianapolis taproom, Kroger, and local package stores. Fans have already begun voicing their support and raising a pint to James of his #Hammerdown brew.
Sam Schmidt of Schmidt Peterson Motor Sports believes his driver will be back in an IndyCar before the end of the season.
“James has always been there for his fans, now his fans have an opportunity to be there for him.” – O’Connor.
