Challenging Indy Lights Weekend For Jack Harvey In Milwaukee

British racing driver Jack Harvey endured a challenging weekend for the latest round of the Indy Lights Championship at Milwaukee. Despite a tough weekend, Harvey is third in the drivers Championship, with just 23 points separating the three Championship contenders.

2014 is Harvey’s first year in Indy Lights and the young Brit leads the way as the highest placed rookie driver, with eight podiums to date, including two wins.

The Racing Steps Foundation-backed driver had a strong start to the weekend, posting the fastest time in Friday’s first practice session. However ahead of the second practice session of the weekend, Harvey suffered an engine problem which lost him valuable track time during the 90-minute session.

Harvey struggled for pace during Saturday’s qualifying session, setting the fifth quickest lap time for Sunday’s race. When the race went green for the Milwaukee Mile 100 at 1300 local time, the top four cars began to pull away from the rest of the field. However, by half distance, the Schmidt Peterson Motorsports driver’s pace picked up and he was able to start closing the gap.

After 100 laps of racing, Harvey crossed the finish line in P5, just five seconds behind race-winner Zach Veach, and a lap ahead of Harvey’s nearest challenger in P6.

“It’s been a a very mixed weekend for us at Milwaukee. We started off posting the fastest time in the first practice session but just couldn’t get the right set up for qualifying or the race so we struggled from then on. It’s disappointing after such a fantastic weekend in Mid Ohio but with the final two rounds of the Championship coming up this weekend, our focus now changes to Sonoma;” commented Jack Harvey.

“The fight for the Championship will go down to the wire with Zach, Gabby and myself separated by just 23 points. Our goal is another double win like we got at Mid Ohio as that would clinch the title for us. The track at Sonoma is similar to Mid Ohio so hopefully we will also be strong there and we can bring the title home for the team;” continued Harvey.

2014 Indy Lights Championship standings:

(1) Gabby Chaves 466 points

(2) Zach Veach 459 points

(3) Jack Harvey 443 points

(4) Matthew Brabham 366 points

(5) Luiz Razia 336 points

The final two rounds of the 2014 Indy Lights series will take place in Sonoma on August 23rd and 24th
