Pataskala, Ohio (18 June 2019) – Meyer Shank Racing (MSR) returns to NTT IndyCar action in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin for the REV Group Grand Prix at Road America on Sunday – the sixth stop on the team’s 10 race 2019 IndyCar schedule.
MSR driver Jack Harvey will make his Road America debut on the lengthy 4.0-mile road course on board the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda as he looks for another podium run.
Harvey has excelled in his outings on road courses so far this season, most recently impressing with a start and finish of third in the INDYCAR Grand Prix to claim his career-first IndyCar podium in challenging conditions at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Harvey will take his recent road course success and his eagerness to learn a new track with him to the Badger State.
“I’m very excited to get to Road America, I think it is one of the best racetracks in North America,” said Harvey. “This will be my first time behind the wheel there, although I have been coaching there and have done some practice on the sim to learn the layout. I have a little bit to learn but we will try to follow our momentum from the GP in May.”
While the race is the first IndyCar outing for MSR, the team carries a long career run on the 14-turn road course including eight appearances in IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship competition. Six of those appearances resulted in top-five finishes for the sports car division of the team.
“Road America is one of the best tracks that we have the opportunity to race on,” said Mike Shank. “As a team, we have many years racing there with our sports car program so we are not going into it completely blind. The level of competition in IndyCar is so high, and we continue to grow and learn each race weekend with this IndyCar program. We will use all the tools we have to hopefully have another solid weekend and get Jack back up on the podium again with AutoNation and SiriusXM.”
The REV Group Grand Prix at Road America will kick-off with practice on Friday, June 21st followed by qualifying on Saturday, June 22nd at 4:00pm ET (tape delay on NBCSN 5pm ET). The 55-lap main event will go green on Sunday, June 23rd at 12:50pm ET with live NBC coverage beginning at 12:00pm ET. Listen in all weekend long to IndyCar Radio coverage on SiriusXM channel 209 or online channel 970.
