Fifth Place Finish For Jack Harvey At Iconic Indianapolis Indy Lights Race

British racing driver Jack Harvey secured another top-five finish, this time at the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Friday. Friday’s fifth place finish means that the rookie driver hasn’t finished out of the top five in all seven races of the season so far, and remains in fourth place in the Championship standings.

Harvey had a very strong qualifying session on Thursday - averaging a speed of almost 187mph - and qualified on the front row of the grid for the first time since he began racing in Indy Lights. Coupled with being quickest in Practice, the Racing Steps Foundation-backed driver was confident of a strong finish in Saturday’s race; dubbed The Freedom 100.

With 40 laps of the iconic 2.5-mile oval ahead of him, the Schmidt Peterson Motorsports driver lined up on the front row of the grid for the rolling start. In the opening stages of the race Harvey could feel that the pace from qualifying was no longer there and dropped a few positions down the field. However, Harvey remained part of the five-car breakaway until a caution on lap 14 that lasted for eight laps and bunched up the field.

At the restart, Harvey was in P5 and successfully held off the advances of Garcia until the checkered flag was waved.

“It’s been a frustrating weekend as we started off topping the table in practice. Then on Thursday we qualified P2, which was completely unexpected as our focus for the session was the race so we weren’t expecting to qualify so high. We therefore went into the race confident of a very strong result and so was disappointed to not have the pace of Thursday and to only come away with P5;” commented Jack Harvey.

“We’re puzzled as to why the drop in pace happened but on the plus side we are still lying in fourth place in the Drivers Championship. Our aim now must be to start getting some more points back and to climb back up the standings. We’re only half way through the season so there’s all to play for;” continued Harvey.

2014 Indy Lights Championship standings:

(1) Gabby Chaves 264 points

(2) Zach Veach 264 points

(3) Luiz Razia 257 points

(4) Jack Harvey 237 points

(5) Matthew Brabham 232 points

The next round of the Indy Lights series will take place at Long Pond, Pennsylvania on July 6th.
