Chat with JR Hildebrand

JR Hildebrand
As a rookie, Hildebrand sits 8th in the points standings.

Welcome to SportsNation! On Wednesday, we'll be chatting with IndyCar rookie JR Hildebrand as he prepares for Saturday's Firestone Twin 275s at Texas Motor Speedway. This year's race features a new format, where instead of running one 550k race, there will be two full-field 275k races, with two winners being declared and half points awarded in both races.

Hildebrand, 23, started a couple of races in 2010, before taking over as the full-time driver of the No. 4 car for Panther Racing. He made headlines earlier this season as he nearly won the Indy 500, finishing second after a small crash on the final lap. Fans can follow him on Twitter: @JRHildebrand.

Send your questions now and join Hildebrand Wednesday at 1 p.m. ET!
