Meyer Shank Racing expands Jack Harvey's IndyCar program for 2019

Meyer Shank Racing has confirmed Jack Harvey will expand his program with the team for the 2019 NTT IndyCar season.

Harvey will compete in a 10-race program across the season which will include the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 in May in the #60 AutoNation entry.

His program will begin at the season opener on March 10 in St.Petersburg, followed by the Circuit Of The Americas; Barber Motorsports Park and Long Beach will occupy April's schedule.

Harvey will also participate in the Indy Grand Prix before the Indy 500 in May, he will also appear at Road America in June and the team's home event at Mid-Ohio in July will follow. His final two events will be season's final two rounds at Portland and Laguna Seca.

Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports will also be continuing its technical partnership with the Meyer Shank outfit.

"We are extremely excited to be extending our program," said Harvey. "That has always been the goal for 2019 and it is amazing to achieve that and continue to grow what we are doing.

"I have to thank Michael (Shank), he has put in an immense amount of work and of course thanks to Jim Meyer for his continued support. Without either of those guys, in their own way, I wouldn’t have received the opportunity.

"We also wouldn’t be able to do any of this without our partners, AutoNation and SiriusXM. We are incredibly lucky to have two companies that believe in us and the vision of the team. Now it’s our turn to get out on track and do more races and hopefully get some better results.

"I believe in the team and in myself to do what we have to do. We are just thrilled to confirm this expanded schedule so we can deliver results for everyone.”

"I am really excited to see the way this program has grown over the past season," added team owner Michael Shank.

"Starting off with only six races is not easy, but Jack (Harvey) did a great job and really hung in there. With 10 races, Jack will have much more seat time and it will help us all around. I’m also excited to have both AutoNation and SiriusXM back on board with us.

"They have been such great partners to work with and there is only more to be excited about next year."

IndyCar's official test will get underway at the Circuit of the Americas on February 12-13.
