Meyer Shank Racing Announces Investment by Formula One Group

Pataskala, Ohio (2 October 2020) – Meyer Shank Racing is pleased to announce that Liberty Media has made a minority equity investment in the Ohio-based team, which is attributed to the Formula One Group. 

The investment will go towards the growth of Meyer Shank Racing’s motorsports operations, including the recently announced multi-year Acura DPi program as well as future expansion of the team’s INDYCAR program. 

After starting in Formula Atlantics, Meyer Shank Racing moved its focus to sports car competition, building a championship-winning organization that includes a full-time IndyCar program as well as a highly successful sports car team.

The team has won some of the biggest races in sports car competition and secured the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech team and driver championships. After three partial seasons in the NTT INDYCAR Series, Meyer Shank Racing grew to contest its first full-time schedule in 2020. The team will compete in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Series again in 2021, teaming with Acura for a move up to the top DPi class starting with the Rolex 24 At Daytona in January. 

“We have worked to build our IMSA and IndyCar racing programs step by step and this is another big progression for our organization to have Liberty Media make an equity investment in MSR,” said team co-owner Mike Shank. “Everything that we do is built on the partnerships that we’ve developed, and this program is no different. The investment by Liberty Media will enable us to continue to build and develop our programs.”

More information about Meyer Shank Racing’s 2021 racing plans will be announced in the near future.

Meyer Shank Racing Takes Seventh Place Finish With Harvey at Iowa

Meyer Shank Racing Takes Seventh Place Finish With Harvey at Iowa 
Second consecutive top ten INDYCAR finish for Harvey

Newton, IA. (18 July 2020) – Race two of two kicked off on Saturday evening at Iowa Speedway as Meyer Shank Racing driver Jack Harvey once again delivered a strong race pace with the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda, coming home with another seventh place finish to close out the NTT INDYCAR Iowa double-header race weekend.  

Four flawless pit stops and continued improvements around the .875-mile ‘bull ring’ gave Harvey a competitive advantage as he made his INDYCAR debut at Iowa Speedway.  

Having finished seventh in the Friday night race, Harvey took the green flag in sixth position which was determined during Friday’s qualifying session. A quick jump at the green bumped Harvey up to fifth during the opening stint.

A well-balanced Honda-powered machine gave Harvey the confidence to make several passes along the bumpy and non-stop circuit. Meyer Shank Racing strategy called by team co-owner Mike Shank, brought Harvey into pit lane twice before the first full course caution on lap 115. The team took advantage of the yellow flag to make a third pit stop under yellow on lap 120 to stay on the lead lap. 

Harvey’s final pit stop on lap 172 would give him a fresh set of Firestone Racing tires and a full tank of fuel which brought him to the finish. Running 78 final laps on one set of tires was a battle of its own, but that strategy call allowed Harvey to stay in the fray and continue his pursuit to the front. 

Utilizing his tools to hang onto the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda, Harvey matched his Race 1 results from Friday, to finish seventh. 

“I thought that was a really solid weekend for Meyer Shank Racing,” said Harvey. “If you would have said before this weekend we’d have two seventh place finishes and two top tens in qualifying, we’d have taken that for sure. I’m so proud of everyone at Meyer Shank Racing who have had constant and relentless determination to have a good season. We’re just going to keep rolling with our momentum into the bossman’s home race at Mid-Ohio in a few weeks.” 

The solid weekend was a well-received outcome after the Meyer Shank Racing squad opened the 2020 season with remarkable qualifying pace from Harvey, but lacked the racing luck to convert that into big results. Harvey and Meyer Shank Racing will now look forward to the next round of IndyCar action at the team’s home track, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. 

“We really needed a weekend like we had to get back on track,” said Meyer Shank Racing co-owner Mike Shank. “Jack really did a great job. These weekends don’t give you much track time so you’re just kind of thrown into it all and have to learn quickly, but Jack had no issues with that. The guys had great stops today and our strategy worked in our favor. Having two top ten qualifying runs and two top ten race results really puts us back in the game. I’m very pleased with this weekend.”

After a busy few weeks of three consecutive INDYCAR races, the team will have two weeks before they head to Meyer Shank Racing’s home track at Mid-Ohio on August 9th for the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio.  

Ahead of that INDYCAR outing, Meyer Shank Racing will return to IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship action at Road America on August 2nd. 

Fast Fight to Seventh For Harvey at Iowa Speedway

Newton, IA. (17 July 2020) – Meyer Shank Racing driver Jack Harvey finally reaped the rewards of the strong pace he has shown all year long as he brought the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda home seventh in Race 1 of the Iowa 250s on Friday night. 

A 90-minute practice, new qualifying format and INDYCAR debut race at Iowa Speedway for Harvey was yet another battle to get up to speed quickly as he and Meyer Shank Racing continue their first full-season INDYCAR Series campaign.

A new two-lap qualifying format would determine the starting spots for Race 1 on Friday and Race 2 on Sunday. Harvey continued his strong qualifying performance to secure P9 and P6 for Race 1 and Race 2 respectively. The qualifying effort was the fifth time Harvey qualified in the top 10 so far in 2020, which includes his back-to-back front row starts at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course and at Road America.  

On the short, fast, and aggressive 0.875-mile ‘bull ring,’ tire strategy would be the most important factor with a new set of Firestone Racing tires giving drivers a two-second advantage.  

Harvey drove a strong first two stints before a lap 116 full course caution. The yellow flag finally worked in Harvey’s favor, allowing him to receive a pass around, come into the pits and stay on the lead lap. A lengthy 26 lap full course caution restructured the field’s pit stop strategy as Harvey restarted from ninth in the order.

A smart pit stop strategy brought Harvey up to a high of fourth, as he fought to make it back to the INDYCAR podium for nearly 20 laps. Following 250 laps of wheel-to-wheel racing, Harvey crossed the finish line seventh. 

 “Today was a really solid day,” said Harvey. “Getting to drive this track in an Indy Car is much different from the Indy Lights car, but the competition and intensity are still the same. As anticipated, the race was non-stop and I definitely learned a ton that I can take with me into tomorrow. This type of finish is what we needed and finally we were able to get a result that was reflective of our pace. I’m hoping that we can improve for tomorrow.” 

Saturday will feature a final practice round at 3:30pm ET with the second round of Iowa Speedway action set for 8:30pm ET on NBCSN. IndyCar Radio coverage will also be featured on SiriusXM Ch. 205. 

AutoNation, SiriusXM and Meyer Shank Racing Ready for Full 2020 NTT IndyCar Season

Video Announcement from MSR

Pataskala, Ohio (8 November 2019) – Meyer Shank Racing (MSR) is pleased to announce the growth of the team’s relationship with AutoNation and SiriusXM.  A new, multi-year, sponsorship will see MSR expand its NTT INDYCAR program to a full season campaign starting in 2020. The Ohio-based team will also continue to work with longstanding manufacturer, Honda. 

Demonstrating pace and promise with his continued progress behind the wheel of the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda IndyCar, MSR has signed an extension with driver Jack Harvey. 

Growing from a six-race program in 2018 to a ten-race campaign in 2019, the relationships have continued to develop in lock step with MSR’s IndyCar effort. MSR will continue with a multi-year arrangement with AutoNation and SiriusXM beginning with the full 2020 race season and beyond. 

AutoNation, America’s largest automotive retailer, has been on the MSR IndyCar since its 2017 Indianapolis 500 debut and has become a staple at IndyCar events with its DRV PNK initiative and traveling Shasta photo booth.

AutoNation’s DRV PNK initiative aims to spread awareness and raise money for cancer research and treatment. The automotive retailer has raised over $20 million dollars towards cancer research. AutoNation continues to spread awareness through its traveling Shasta photo booth which has made an appearance at several IndyCar races including the season opener in St. Petersburg, FL as well as at Circuit of the Americas. 

“MSR, SiriusXM and Jack have been terrific partners and supporters of AutoNation and DRV PNK,” said Marc Cannon, AutoNation’s Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. “We’re excited to announce the continuation of our partnership and are looking forward to a great 2020 season.”

SiriusXM, world’s largest audio entertainment company will also return onboard the MSR IndyCar for the 2020 season. SiriusXM airs every NTT IndyCar race on its dedicated IndyCar channel and offers subscribers extensive Indianapolis 500 coverage with live radio shows hosted at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. SiriusXM and MSR will also work together to give subscribers truly one-of-a-kind experiences with the opportunity to attend a race, get a special tour of the garage and meet with Jack Harvey.

“We are proud to continue to support Meyer Shank Racing and Jack Harvey’s No. 60 car as they expand to a full season in 2020,” said Richard Beatty, SiriusXM’s SVP of Marketing.  “We were very happy to see their success last year on the track and as the team continues to build on that momentum we are very pleased to have SiriusXM along for the ride.”   

“It’s great that we are able to officially announce our full season effort for the 2020 IndyCar season,” said MSR co-owner, Jim Meyer. “This team and Mike (Shank) have worked very hard over the last two IndyCar seasons to put us in a position where we can come back full time. It’s also exciting to have both SiriusXM and AutoNation return on board the No. 60; both have been outstanding parties to work with.”

The 2019 season has produced competitive results thus far. In just the team’s 12th IndyCar race, Harvey scored his, and MSR’s, first podium finish at the INDYCAR Grand Prix in May. Harvey has also placed in the top ten, four times in 2019.

Harvey has played a critical role in bringing the team’s sponsors together and is excited to continue to build the already strong relationships that he has with the MSR crew, AutoNation and SiriusXM.

“This is the moment that we all work so extremely hard for,” said Harvey. “I am beyond grateful for this opportunity to go racing with Meyer Shank Racing, AutoNation and SiriusXM full time. We have shown we can be competitive, and I can’t wait to build on that and get started on another multi-year program with this group. This is the first time in four years I’ll be competing full time, I owe that to Michael (Shank), Jim (Meyer), Marc (Cannon), my manager Bob (Perona) and my family for the support and belief. I’ve never been so excited to go racing.”

It has been three years in the making for team co-owner Mike Shank to go full time with his IndyCar program. The 2017 Indianapolis 500 was MSR’s first taste of IndyCar action which prompted a partial six race program for the 2018 season with Harvey, AutoNation and SiriusXM. The team’s success is also due in part by Honda’s commitment to excellence both on and off the track. 

“These last two years we have been taking the season in stride and really learning how to build our program to the point where we can run all 17 races,” said Shank. “This year has been great and Jack (Harvey) has produced some spectacular results for us and we, as a team, are proud to have him back next year. And of course, all of this would not be possible without AutoNation and SiriusXM who have worked side by side with us from the very beginning and they are a big factor in getting our program to where it is right now.

“Of course sticking by Honda was a very important decision to me,” continued Shank. “We have stood by HPD and Honda for many years in both the sports car and IndyCar paddocks and to be able to continue to work with them in 2020 is something I am really grateful for.”

Having first partnered with the team for the 2017 Indianapolis 500, Meyer Shank Racing has also announced that the team will enter a technical partnership with Andretti Technologies for the 2020 season. 

“We feel very strong about our partnership with Andretti Technologies and feel that will be a mutually beneficial program,” said Shank.  “Announcing our full season effort is a combination of a ton of work behind the scenes from our sponsors to our individual crew members, and it’s great to finally announce our full season schedule for next year in IndyCar.” 

“I’m very excited that MSR is partnering with Andretti Technologies,” said Harvey. “This group together is really where this journey started. Consistently, they have shown they are one of the best teams and hopefully we can both continue to have strong seasons next year.”

With the 2020 NTT IndyCar season recently announced, Meyer Shank Racing will enter in all 17 scheduled events including a run at the team’s fourth Indianapolis 500 next May.

Portland Promise Unfulfilled For Harvey after Contact

A promising NTT IndyCar race for the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda of Meyer Shank Racing driver, Jack Harvey ended far too early on Sunday at Portland International Raceway after he was taken out in a turn one incident on lap 14.

The sudden and surprising end to the day came as a severe disappointment for the young Briton, who had posted a strong qualifying performance in the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda to start the race in fourth and had moved up one position at the start.

Harvey made it though the restart after an early full course caution slowed the field. Racing in fourth Harvey was blindsided when struck by the No. 28 car on the inside of turn one. The incident damaged the rear suspension and left the No. 60 Honda stranded on track, forced to retire from the race. 

“My day was unfortunately cut pretty short,” said Harvey. “I had a great start and was able to get into P3 on the exit of Turn two and then on the restart I lost a place to Will Power who was on (Firestone) reds and I was on blacks. I knew that I was far enough away from Ryan (Hunter-Reay) that I actually deactivated push to pass because I was so clear. The No. 60 Autonation / SiriusXM Honda showed great pace all weekend and we have made some real good gains this year. I am proud of everyone this weekend it’s just disappointing that we weren’t able to get the result today that we deserved.”

“It’s a pretty disappointing way to finish out the weekend,” said Mike Shank. “We had such a strong run all weekend and we were on track for another podium finish. It’s pretty clear to me what happened. Ryan (Hunter-Reay) has driven for me several times in sports cars and I doubt that he meant to do that but he was defending his teammate and got into he corner too deep and made us a consequence of that. I have to thank AutoNation, SiriusXM and Jack for just a tremendous weekend. We are going to get this hot rod fixed up and get it ready for Laguna. We were really strong there at the test earlier in the year so we are really looking forward to that.”

Meyer Shank Racing will return to NTT IndyCar race action at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca on September 20-22.

Meyer Shank Racing Ninth on the Mid-Ohio Grid


Lexington, Ohio (27 July 2019) – Meyer Shank Racing driver, Jack Harvey has continued to impress this season, adding another strong performance to his credit on Saturday after qualifying ninth at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the Honda Indy 200 (Sunday NBC 4:05pm ET).

Harvey has now taken his No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda to the top ten in qualifying three times this season, all of which led to a top ten race finish.

The second year NTT IndyCar team has proven to have a strong pace in the close field of drivers in its eighth IndyCar event this season. The Honda Indy 200 is extra special to Meyer Shank Racing which is based just outside of Columbus and has several friends, family and local sponsors attending the event weekend.

Mid-Ohio is the site where Harvey scored his first ever win in North America and is now showing that same pace in his IndyCar career. Harvey got off to a quick start at Mid-Ohio, closing out Friday’s practice tenth fastest. That momentum rolled into qualifying on Saturday after finishing fifth in Group 1 with a 1:05.910-second lap.

Harvey praised the balance of the car after transferring into Top 12 qualifying which saw him bring home the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda ninth in the qualifying order after laying down a 1:05.723-second lap.

“I am really happy with a top ten start,” said Harvey. “We are only a part-time team but we are competitive like a full-time team. I know how important this race is for everyone at Meyer Shank Racing and we have put ourselves in a good position to have a great race day. My goal is to make everyone that is here to support us as well as our partners, AutoNation and SiriusXM, proud. We are right in the window to have success and I know that the MSR guys can put together a great car for me to be competition tomorrow.”

Co-Owner, Mike Shank has had a sort of homecoming at Mid-Ohio after growing up at the track, racing there himself and running successful sports car and IndyCar programs at the track. The top ten qualifying run was a positive addition to the weekend for Shank.

We have a plan and we have expectations,” said Shank. “Even though we have had success in the past we can’t lose sight of the plan and qualifying in the top ten is a part of that plan. The crew and Jack have shown so much improvement this year and we are starting to see those results come together and I couldn’t be more proud. We will only go forward tomorrow with clean strategy and letting Jack put the hammer down behind the wheel.”

The Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio race day will start off with Warm Up at 12:00pm ET with a race start scheduled for 4:05pm ET. Live NBC race coverage will begin at 4:00pm ET or listen live on SiriusXM ch. 209 or Online Ch. 970.

Meyer Shank Racing Indianapolis 500 Day Practice Recap – May 15

Meyer Shank Racing Indianapolis 500 Day Practice Recap – May 15th


  • Jack Harvey in the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda is sixth fastest amongst the no-tow times.
  • Harvey posts top speed of 226.395mph after competing 58 total laps

Indianapolis, Ind. (15 May 2019) – Day two of Indianapolis 500 practice got underway on Wednesday, just three days before the first day of qualifying begins.

Jack Harvey and the Meyer Shank Racing squad continued to test various set ups for the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda. Harvey got off to a quick start during the morning hours and posted the sixth quickest speed of 223.523mph under no-tow conditions.

After making adjustments ahead of the final hour of practice, Harvey continued to gain speed in the conditions. During the ‘happy hour’ session Harvey put his reaction skills to the test after the No. 10 spun off track at speed just in front of Harvey’s No. 60 machine. But heads up driving brought the Brit cleanly through the incident to continue the final 40-minutes of the session.

The day ended with Harvey completing 58 total laps and posting a top speed of 226.395mph to place him 23rd in the overall order and sixth in the no tow standings.

“We had a pretty productive day, we managed to get through a lot,” said Harvey. “We did some race running and some single car running and I think in the end it was a pretty positive day. Our no-tow times are getting better but we still have more work to do on our race setup so we can run better in traffic. We are taking steps in the right direction and we will continue to chip away at our to-do list. We will go into Thursday a little bit stronger than we were today.”

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.
