SUBMITTED PHOTOS IndyCar driver James Hinchcliffe has been inducted into the Red Cross’ Indiana Region Hall of Fame for raising blood donation awareness nationwide. During the local ceremony, Hinchcliffe was surprised by blood donors Madelynn Guerra (left) and Madison Mowry, both of whom he had never met. Their donations were among those used to help save his life after a horrendous crash May 18, 2015, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Hinchcliffe said he is hopeful that blood drives can be held onsite this season at IndyCar Series events.
