Opening Lap Contact Hampers Long Beach Result for Meyer Shank Racing

Long Beach, Calif. (14 April 2019) – After a momentum-building run in the opening three races of the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series season, the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach race weekend proved to be a bitter pill to swallow for Meyer Shank Racing on Sunday.

First lap contact at the start of the 85-lap race cost Jack Harvey any chance for a return to top ten results with the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda Indy Car. The team finished the race 22nd.

Running a special Acura branded livery for the first-time Acura title sponsored event, Harvey was aiming to maneuver through the field early after starting from the ninth row on Sunday’s race.

The 23 car field took the green flag on the notoriously narrow and unforgiving 1.968-mile temporary street circuit as Harvey made it cleanly through the initial corner. But it was a SoCal traffic jam as the field navigated through the Turn 2-3 Fountain complex of corners with Harvey getting hit from behind and left stranded on course.

Once getting restarted, the Meyer Shank Racing team quickly brought Harvey into the pits to replace the damaged rear wing while making an effort to stay as close to the lead lap as possible.

Unfortunately, once funneled back into the fray, Harvey was three laps down and from there it was an 80-lap sprint to the finish as Harvey finished a frustrated 22nd.

“We were lacking some substantial pace as I think we had some pretty significant damage from that shunt,” said Harvey. “I was just trying to get to the end of the race to  collect as much data for the team as possible. This weekend has been kind of a struggle for us. But even in a race like I had, I was still pushing as hard as I normally would and there was no difference in mentality. We’ll have a take a look at the data tonight and see where we can improve for the Indy GP.”

The race result marked a disappointing end to a big weekend for MSR. With the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda representing Acura this weekend, as well as a healthy and enthusiastic group of AutoNation guests on hand proudly carrying the Drive Pink colors, the team was left wishing for a better result for the team partners but will look forward to preparations for a big month in Indianapolis.

“This weekend was a tough one for us,” said Mike Shank. “We started to get back on track with pace and we were feeling pretty confident in our race pace. But unfortunately when you race on a street course like Long Beach, things like this can happen and there wasn’t much we could do about it other than get back out there and push as hard as we could. I was impressed with Jack for never giving up. It’s tough to know that you’re several laps down and not lose focus, but he did an amazing job.”

The next round of NTT IndyCar competition with head to Indianapolis Motor Speedway to kick off the first round of racing during the Month of May for the IndyCar Grand Prix on May 10-11.

Meyer Shank Racing Expands IndyCar Program in 2019

Meyer Shank Racing Expands IndyCar Program in 2019

Pataskala, Ohio (22 January 2019) – Building on the team’s 2018 six-race NTT IndyCar Series program, Meyer Shank Racing (MSR) is pleased to announce that the team will contest a 10-race program in 2019 with driver Jack Harvey.

The MSR schedule will once again include an entry in the Indianapolis 500 and will grow to include nine IndyCar road course events as the team continues to build the program with sponsorship from AutoNation and SiriusXM.

MSR will open the 2019 IndyCar season in St. Petersburg on March 10th, before heading to Texas for the series’ debut at the Circuit of the Americas. April will be another two-race month for the team with outings at Barber Motorsports Park and Long Beach ahead of the Indianapolis Grand Prix and the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 in May. June will see the team in action at Road America, with a run at the team’s home event at Mid-Ohio in July. The team will head west for the final two rounds of the season with outings at Portland International Raceway and the season-ending event at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

Continuing its technical partnership with Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports (Arrow SPM), Meyer Shank Racing is eager to take on the 2019 season with Harvey as the team continues to build on the IndyCar program.

“I am really excited to see the way this program has grown over the past season,” said Mike 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.”

“The partnership with Meyer Shank Racing has been so mutually beneficial, and I’m excited to see it continue and grow,” said Sam Schmidt, co-owner, Arrow SPM. “Being able to share data, resources and personnel only helps both teams’ efforts as we all strive to win more races. I’m really looking forward to another great year with MSR, Mike (Shank) and Jim (Meyer) working alongside everyone at Arrow SPM.”

Returning to the MSR squad are AutoNation and SiriusXM which have been integral parts of MSR’s inaugural year in the IndyCar Series. AutoNation had a large presence at the IndyCar season finale in Sonoma with its traveling “Drive Pink Shasta” and is excited to partner with the Ohio-based team again.

SiriusXM is returning for its second multi-race season with Meyer Shank Racing. SiriusXM first appeared on the side of the team’s IndyCar during the 2017 Indianapolis 500 then joined the team again for its partial campaign in 2018. SiriusXM will sponsor the No. 60 car for all 10 races the team runs in 2019.

“We are proud to continue to support Meyer Shank Racing and Jack Harvey’s No. 60 car as they expand their schedule in 2019,” said Jim Meyer, Chief Executive Officer of SiriusXM. “Jack (Harvey) turned a lot of heads with his performance in last year’s Indy 500 and we are excited to see what he and the MSR team will do on the track for 10 races this season.”

SiriusXM offers listeners live coverage of every NTT IndyCar® Series race, including the Indianapolis 500, through the 2019 season.

The 10 race IndyCar schedule is another indicator of MSR’s growth as it also competes full time in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The team closed the season with a run to the Petit Le Mans podium on the way to second in the IMSA GTD class championship, and recently announced an all-female driver line up for its Acura NSX GT3 entry for the 2019 IMSA season.

“We are going to have a busy year between IMSA and IndyCar,” said Shank. “But I know my guys and they work around the clock to get the job done. The schedule that we have chosen allows us to do both series without any interference, so we can give ourselves the best chances possible to get results.”

Harvey who made an impression last season with a near-win in the Indianapolis 500 is eager to get back behind the wheel of his pink No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda for another competitive season.

“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.”

Meyer Shank Racing will kick off the 2019 NTT IndyCar season with the official series test at Circuit of the Americas on February 12-13 followed by the fist event of the season in St. Petersburg on March 10th.

Meyer Shank Racing Closes First IndyCar Season at Sonoma Finale

Sonoma, Calif. (16 September 2018) – Meyer Shank Racing closed the curtains on its first Verizon IndyCar Series campaign after completing the season finale at Sonoma Raceway on Sunday. Jack Harvey fought hard in his No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda to bring home a 17th place result.

Working with technical partner Schmidt Peterson Motorsports (SPM), the 2018 season saw the first-year squad show promise in a year full of learning. The MSR and Harvey pairing has grown throughout their six race IndyCar campaign. Running a select schedule of events, the MSR effort has arrived for each race weekend ready to go and make demonstrable progress at each race outing.

Hopes were high heading into Sonoma as Harvey aimed to ride the momentum from his strong Portland outing earlier this month. An eighth row starting position for the Sonoma Grand Prix wasn’t ideal, but Harvey set his focus forward at the drop of the green flag for Sunday’s 85 lap race.

Clean running kept Harvey out of trouble through the first stint which allowed him to hold his starting position through to his first pit stop on lap 36. Fighting to maximize grip, Harvey continued on through the 44 laps of green flag running before the first and only full course caution.

Three near perfect pit stops and Harvey’s perseverance kept the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda in the fight, as the Honda-Dallara that carried AutoNation’s “DrivePink” campaign fought forward to close in on a dense pack with just eight laps to go. After 85 laps of hard-fought running, Harvey brought home a 17th place result.

“Overall I think that we had a lot of great moments in the year, but I don’t think we ever got the result that fully matched the potential that we had or that the team deserved,” said Harvey. “This weekend has been a struggle. Even though today clearly wasn’t my best day, if you look at the year as a whole, we had some good moments. I really have to thank everyone from Meyer Shank Racing and SPM. And without AutoNation and SiriusXM, neither of us would be able to get to be here, so really the biggest thanks go to them. I’m optimistic and hopeful that next year we will do more races and have more opportunities to get a better result.”

The season long IndyCar campaign checked the box on one of Mike Shank’s long-held goals, but the end of the year only brightens the focus on 2019 as Shank looks to grow and build the IndyCar side of his program.

“This year has been a whirlwind,” said Shank. “I think we came into it with realistic expectations and I think that helped us a lot. Obviously when we come to these races we want results. We want to get results for the team and of course for AutoNation and SiriusXM, who without them, we wouldn’t be here. This year has been a great stepping stone and we are aiming to do more IndyCar races next year. I can’t say enough about Jack (Harvey) and what he has done for us this year. We have all been learning together and now that we got the first season out of the way we can aim to get stronger and stronger for next year.”

Although the Verizon IndyCar season has come to an end, Meyer Shank Racing still has one race left as the team vies for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship at the season ending, Motul Petit Le Mans on October 10th-13th.

Meyer Shank Racing Fights Forward at the Grand Prix of Portland

Returning to Verizon IndyCar Series race action, Meyer Shank Racing (MSR) staged its most promising outing of the year as Jack Harvey showed well in the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda throughout the Grand Prix of Portland race weekend.

In Sunday’s 105-lap event, Harvey raced as high as fifth before coming home 16th after an advance in track position became elusive in the closing stages of the race following the timing of a full course caution.

Having finished its fifth Verizon IndyCar Series race of the season, MSR made progress to find the best balance to generate pace with the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda. The event weekend provided optimism for the effort as Harvey found a rhythm in his first ever outing at the Pacific Northwest circuit.

Following some strong runs in the opening practice sessions, Harvey posted his season-best qualifying result to claim a spot on the seventh row and was looking to move forward at the start.

A large lap 1 incident took out several the front runners and Harvey’s heads-up driving saw him maneuver around the carnage. Starting sixth on the restart Harvey found a fast pace and was on the charge forward before his first pit stop on lap 17.

By lap 39, Harvey had fought back up to fifth position as he took a liking to his Firestone reds. The pace which would have brought the No. 60 to a top five finish, was deterred by the final lap 76 caution period which brought Harvey back down the order after a lap 75 pit stop.

But not giving up the fight, Harvey pushed until the final moments of the race and crossed the line 16th in the order.

“The beginning of the race went really well and we cycled out well after that first restart,” said Harvey. “Unfortunately, after that, we caught every yellow at the wrong moment. This weekend we made so much good progress, it’s a bit disappointing how the race played out. During the first stage of the race we were legitimately running top six and holding it, but then the end result didn’t show that. Hopefully we can take a few days to reset and take the positives from this weekend and bring them to Sonoma.”

Pleased to see continual progress with his team this season, Mike Shank was disappointed that the they were unable to find track position at the end of the race despite showing pace to run in the front of the field.

“We are getting better and faster each race weekend, it’s just been a challenge of ours to get a good track position,” said Shank. “We are working to make all the right calls in the box to get Jack (Harvey) up the field, and I think that showed in the first half of the race. Jack was driving hard and running with guys who have been doing this much more frequently than us. I’m happy that we are making progress and hopefully we can close out the season strong at Sonoma.”

The MSR team won’t have to wait long until the next race outing as it heads to WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca for Round 11 of IMSA WeatherTech SportCar Championship competition on September 9thbefore heading to Sonoma Raceway for the IndyCar finale on September 16th.

Meyer Shank Racing Shows Quick Pace at Portland

Meyer Shank Racing (MSR) continued to show its progress in Verizon IndyCar Series competition as the team displayed quick pace at Portland International Raceway in the opening sessions ahead of Sunday’s Grand Prix of Portland (NBCSN 11:30 am PST / SiriusXM Ch. 209).

On Saturday, MSR driver Jack Harvey qualified the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda IndyCar on the seventh row with a 57.962-second lap flyer. With just one second separating the entire 25 car field, Sunday’s race is expected to be another tight battle to the finish.

With the Verizon IndyCar Series heading back to Portland International Raceway after a decade hiatus, the field was tasked with learning the quick 1.964-mile course.

Arriving to Portland with a quick AutoNation / SiriusXM machine, Harvey continued his forward progress as he closed out Friday’s practice day fifth fastest.

Harvey hoped to show that same pace during Saturday’s qualifying session. Finding speed early on, Harvey’s initial laps were quick enough for third in Group 1. But unfortunately his fast lap flyer of 57.962-seconds would be just hundredths of a second short of the transfer line. Harvey will start the Grand Prix of Portland thirteenth, his best start of the season.

“I had hoped that we could have pulled off a better qualifying result than that,” said Harvey. “Yesterday we had a really good handle on the car and I think today it slipped away from us just a little bit. We’ve shown top ten speed, so not to transfer is pretty disappointing. It’s tough to be on the bubble like that and be the guy to not transfer but it is going to be our highest start of the year. We are making progress, but just a little disappointed that we couldn’t show our pace in qualifying.”

Mike Shank is pleased to see the progress that both Harvey and his team have made in just their fifth IndyCar outing of the year, and is hoping that strategy combined with a strong pace will bring the team a good result for tomorrow’s race.

“Obviously we wish that we could have made the transfer and I think that we had the pace to do that,” said Shank. “This field is just so close, every corner matters and the slightest bobbles can cost you that tenth of a second that you need. Jack (Harvey) has been doing really well this weekend and it’s been helpful that everyone is relearning the track. We just need to put our heads down and use all of our tools tomorrow.”

Catch live coverage of the Grand Prix of Portland on Sunday on NBCSN beginning at 11:30am PST (2:30pm ET). You can also listen to live coverage on SiriusXM Ch. 209.

Meyer Shank Racing Completes Home Race at Mid-Ohio

Meyer Shank Racing Completes Home Race at Mid-Ohio

Mansfield, Ohio (29 July 2018) – It was a highly anticipated homecoming at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for Meyer Shank Racing (MSR) as the team continued its Verizon IndyCar Series campaign on Sunday. MSR driver Jack Harvey brought the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda home 20th in the team’s fourth IndyCar race of the season.

Starting on the tenth row, MSR relied on an aggressive strategy to pit early in hopes of moving Harvey up the order as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, that strategy was reliant on the arrival of a full course caution to shuffle the order. But as the Mid-Ohio track staged its first all-green race since 2013 with 90 laps of flat out and fast green flag running, that strategy didn’t return the hoped-for result.

As a previous winner at the Ohio-based track, Harvey continued to generate experience on board the Honda-powered No. 60 MSR IndyCar. Over the course of the event, Harvey made seven passes for position and posted a fast lap of 1:07.867-seconds, which was consistent with the top running cars.

Although a 20th place result was not what Harvey had hoped for at the team’s home race, he has already moved his focus to building on the home outing with a  stronger run in the next MSR IndyCar outing in Portland.

“We had a high risk, high reward type of strategy,” said Harvey. “The race summed up our weekend in that at sometimes we were ok but then other times, we were struggling a lot. Our day was a combination of not being quick and not getting the yellows we needed. The team has been working hard and I think that only doing a few races this year is a challenge, but we are making the best of it and I know we will make progress during Portland.”

Attending his first Verizon IndyCar race at Mid-Ohio as a team owner, Mike Shank wishes that the team’s strategy played out accordingly.

“The first race back home isn’t exactly how we wanted it to go,” said Shank. “We gambled for track position and it didn’t pay off. It would have been a completely different race for us had we got a yellow. There are a lot of little things we need to tighten up since we don’t do this every weekend. It’s a bit of a disappointment, but what we can get out of this is learning these little mistakes and fixing them. We will be back for Portland and we will look at what happened here and see where we can improve.”

The team has a busy schedule with another  IMSA WeatherTech championship outing next week before returning to IndyCar action when the series heads to Portland International Raceway. The Portland race weekend will kick off on August 30th – September 2nd.

Jack Harvey Takes 16th in Indianapolis 500 for Meyer Shank Racing

Team’s second Indianapolis 500 effort nearly nets podium after alternate strategy misses out by a pair of laps 

Indianapolis, Ind. (27 May 2018) – In front of a near-capacity crowd celebrating over 102 years of American racing tradition, Meyer Shank Racing driver Jack Harvey raced through 200 laps of the hottest Indianapolis 500 on record to score a 16th place finish on Sunday.

The result marked a big move forward for the team after starting from 31st on the grid with the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda entry, but doesn’t fully reflect the strong team performance in just its second-ever Indianapolis 500 race start following months of preparations for Meyer Shank Racing with SPM.

Strong pit stops and clean restarts helped Harvey make forward progress, as his car came alive during the long runs of the race which helped him move through the field. Harvey raced his way into contention by the halfway point of the race, moving up to run in third by lap 95 and returning to the top three once again on lap 130.

After restarting the race from fourteenth in the order on lap 153, the team called Harvey in for fuel and tires on lap 158. With six cautions having slowed the field up to that point, the possibility of added cautions helped to fuel the commitment to the strategy. Returning to the fray with the assignment of saving fuel, Harvey was still able to move up to run third by lap 181.

Needing some caution laps to make it to the checkered flag without returning to pit lane, Harvey and the MSR squad seemed to have played the strategy to perfection as a seventh caution arrived on lap 189. But the clean-up was quick and the race resumed on lap 193.

Harvey made a dramatic move on the outside of turn one on the restart, snagging second place with less than five minutes remaining in the race. But the numbers didn’t all add up, and the affable British racer was forced to make a trip to pit lane for a lightning-quick stop for fuel.

Crossing the finish line 16th, Harvey had a big smile as he took off his helmet post race. Having shown strong pace and earning his first-ever Indianapolis 500 race finish on the lead lap, Harvey was proud of the team effort. While he had been hoping for a little bit of racing luck late in the race, Harvey was thrilled with how much progress the team has made.

“It’s the Indy 500, the biggest one of the year, so the team didn’t have to apologize to me for going for it!” said Harvey of the fuel strategy. “We nearly made the strategy work, but there were a few bits where we just couldn’t hit the numbers. We ran up to the front at the end and went three-wide into turn one on the last restart. I tried to drive the best race I could and we finished 16th, which is a pretty good day considering where we started. Looking at where we were last year and where we are today, it’s a night and day difference. Thank you to AutoNation and SiriusXM and all of the supporters and sponsors that we have and to Michael (Shank) for believing in me. This is a good program that’s getting off the ground and this is good momentum to keep going.”

For his second time running in the Indianapolis 500, Mike Shank, could not be more proud of the effort put forth by his team to get the result that it did and to show that they have the speed to be a front runner.

“Jack (Harvey) just drove a hell of a race, he did us proud today,” said Mike Shank. “I’m super pleased with our whole team effort today, we executed really well as a team. Our stops were strong and we picked up some positions on pit lane early in the race. The way the race was going, we pitted earlier in that window. We were in a great position late in the race and then Jack had an outstanding restart. We were committed to that strategy, but it just didn’t work out in the end. But it is great momentum for the team and all of our partners to have a strong finish in this race. We will continue to build this program, and I’m really proud of our month. Now we are really looking forward to racing IndyCar at Mid-Ohio in July.”

The next event for Meyer Shank Racing will bring the team back on home soil to compete at the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio on July 29th.

Meyer Shank Racing Qualifies for the 102nd Indianapolis 500

Harvey moves on to pole day for the 2018 Indianapolis 500

  • Jack Harvey qualifies the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda IndyCar with the 27th fastest time of the day, clocking an average four lap speed of 225.720-mph.
  • 2018 marks the second Indianapolis 500 start for Meyer Shank Racing
  • Team effort as Harvey steps up and delivers in second attempt

On a pressure-packed day that saw multiple stoppages for weather and the return of bumping to Indianapolis 500 qualifying, Meyer Shank Racing (MSR) emerged from a long Saturday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to claim a position in the 2018 Indianapolis 500. MSR driver Jack Harvey posted a four-lap average of 225.720-mph in the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda in his second qualifying attempt to earn a grid spot for the Memorial Day classic.

The pressure was on, but the Meyer Shank Racing crew responded to the challenge with Harvey also coming through at the clutch time.

Team partner Jim Meyer drew for Saturday’s qualifying order with Harvey set to go out third in the order. Harvey posted an initial four lap average speed of 225.233-mph. Looking to improve on that speed, the team headed back to the garage to continue to adjust the car for the changing conditions and to prepare for the second qualifying attempt later in the afternoon.

Two heavy rain showers soaked the track which caused significant rain delays and narrowed the window for a second qualifying attempt. The skies parted and the sun showed enough to dry the track for the last hour of qualifying activities. Right on cue, Harvey delivered a strong second qualifying run to insure the car would not be bumped from the field with an average speed of 225.720-mph – 27th quickest lap of the 33 car field.

Harvey and Meyer Shank Racing will now move onto pole day to set the official grid for the Indianapolis 500 on May 27th.

“We felt really close to the bubble because of our disappointing first run,” said Harvey of his first qualifying attempt. “I have been sweating it all day. It was tight until the checkered flag dropped. The second run was a much better run than the first. Meyer Shank Racing has done a great job the whole month. What’s been confusing at times is that we don’t know exactly where the speed is, but everyone at Meyer Shank Racing has done a great job at figuring it out for me.  We know what we need to do and then we would execute it. The guys are putting the hours in, so we will just keep trying heading into pole day tomorrow.”

Pole Day will kick off with a morning practice session at 12:00 p.m. ET with Qualifying beginning at 2:45 p.m. ET.

Meyer Shank Racing Indianapolis 500 Practice Day 3 Report

Harvey leads total number of laps completed with 318

  • No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda with driver Jack Harvey completes 94 laps during the third practice day at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on May 17th.
  • Top speed clocked as 223.556-mph

Indianapolis, Ind. (17 May 2018) – With the practice days winding down as the intensity increases ahead of qualifying for the 2018 Indianapolis 500, Meyer Shank Racing continued to develop the set up of the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda on Thursday. Three straight days of ideal track conditions have provided the Meyer Shank Racing crew and driver Jack Harvey plenty of track time to test various set up scenarios.

With the possibility of rainy weather looming in the forecast, the team utilized the third day of practice to test a range set ups with both qualifying and the race in mind. Harvey opened the day with a solid run of 19 laps with an initial top speed of 221.958-mph.

After making a few changes, the team’s focus continued to be running in traffic and setting a comfortable pace in a group setting – something that will be essential come race day.

The afternoon hours brought Harvey back out on track as the team set several practice runs with multiple live pit stops before returning to the track for a few short runs. The last 30 minutes of the day saw a lot of track activity as Harvey diced with nearly 20 other cars in the field, maximizing his time spent in traffic.

Six o’clock closed the end of the third day of practice with Harvey completing a total of 94 laps with a top speed of 223.556-mph which was clocked in on Lap 77. Harvey also ended the day having completed more laps than any other driver thus far with 318 laps through the first three days of testing.

“We had a really solid day,” said Harvey of his third day of practice. “Today we had to shift our plan based on what the weather is going to be tomorrow. Our qualifying simulations were pretty decent and we made good progress in the heat of the day. It was another day of progress which is what it’s all about here. The team was looking at all sorts of data points and there is lots to look through tonight. We will just keep trying to do our best and try to get our AutoNation / SiriusXM car to the front.”
