Jack Harvey cleared for Texas return after St. Pete accident

Jack Harvey is cleared to compete in next week’s running of the PPG 375 at the 1.5-mile oval Texas Motor Speedway (TMS), Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing (RLL) announced.

Harvey was one of several drivers involved in an accident during the 2023 NTT IndyCar Series season-opening event earlier this month at the Firestone St. Petersburg Grand Prix. Harvey was taken to a local hospital for further evaluation before being released later that night.

During his time recovering from the March 5th St. Petersburg accident, Harvey sat out the March 13th’s private test from Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds, Alabama after not being cleared by the series’ medical staff. RLL picked up three-time winner in Formula 2 Juri Vips to test the No. 30 Honda for the organization.

Harvey was evaluated again by the team, between the test date and last week’s announcement. In which, he passed to compete in Fort Worth, Texas on April 2nd. The 29-year-old Birton missed the round at TMS last season after sustaining a heavy crash in practice and sustained a concussion.
