IndyCar clears Harvey to race after crash in season opener
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — IndyCar on Friday cleared driver Jack Harvey to return to competition following a frightening crash in the season-opening race.
Harvey was briefly evaluated at a Florida hospital following a multi-car crash in the March 5 race on the streets of downtown St. Petersburg. Kyle Kirkwood launched airborne over the top of Harvey's car in the crash.
Rahal Letterman Lanigan said Harvey will race April 2 on the oval at Texas Motor Speedway. The British driver missed the Texas race last year with a concussion diagnosed ahead of the race from a crash earlier in the weekend.
His latest injury was not disclosed by the IndyCar medical team, which did not clear Harvey last week to test at Sebring International Raceway.
