An INDY NXT by Firestone graduate, Devlin DeFrancesco is a Toronto native and driver for Andretti Steinbrenner Autosport. Born 15 weeks premature, DeFrancesco spent the first four months of his life in an incubator at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Hospital and was issued his last rites many times in case he didn’t survive. Today, he and his family regularly support the hospital. In racing, DeFrancesco has won races in North American and European karting, claimed the Spanish F3 title in 2017 and won the Rookie of the Year crown in USF Pro 2000 in 2020. Looking to this season, DeFrancesco has high hopes for what can be achieved.
