Analysis

Have Harvey and RLL formed IndyCar’s next winning match-up?

Jack Harvey’s move to Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing sparked plenty of debate, but their combined strength could prove golden, says David Malsher-Lopez.

Of the many silly-season driver/team changes that started brewing this past springtime – or even before that in the case of the split between Ryan Hunter-Reay and Andretti Autosport – Jack Harvey’s departure from Meyer Shank Racing was not foreseen. Not even by team owners Michael Shank and Jim Meyer.

It was unexpected, perhaps largely because Harvey seemed to have a job for life there. His gratitude to Shank and Meyer for having winched him out of post-Indy Lights No-man’s Land to become a part-time IndyCar driver in 2018 and ’19, then a full-timer from 2020, was palpable in his every interview. And in reciprocation, the team owners’ affection and respect for the 28-year-old from Bassingham, Lincolnshire, UK, for making the most of the part-time deal – a way trickier proposition in this era of extremely limited testing – knew no bounds.
