FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – Jack Harvey failed the cognitive test he was due to take after a hard practice accident at Texas Motor Speedway and was not allowed to compete on Sunday.
Santino Ferrucci has been named the 45th Honda replacement driver by Rahal Letterman Lanigan. Ferrucci drove the car in five races last year, and as a current Dallas resident was available when RLL needed an emergency fill.
Harvey crashed in last practice on Saturday and IndyCar said the accelerometer measuring g forces exceeded the minimum threshold. It meant he needed an assessment on Sunday and IndyCar did not allow him to compete.
The Rahal team had to build a new chassis to replace the one destroyed in the crash. IndyCar allowed the team to remain in the Texas garage until Sunday morning. Ferrucci was given a 15-minute session on the track to get started before the race and gave 10 laps.
