NAPERVILLE, Ill. – Kevin Magnussen will get a chance to make his NTT IndyCar Series debut this weekend, as he will replace the ailing Felix Rosenqvist at Arrow McLaren SP for the REV Group Grand Prix at Road America.
Rosenqvist has not been cleared to race at this weekend’s round as he continues to recover from a serious crash at last Saturday’s Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix at Belle Isle.
Magnussen takes over and has been released on a temporary basis by Chip Ganassi Racing to drive for Arrow McLaren SP.
Magnussen made 19 starts for the McLaren Formula 1 team in 2014, including a career-best finish of second at the Australian Grand Prix that year. He also comes fresh from a win last weekend in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship at the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix in a Cadillac DPi-V.R.
Further updates about Rosenqvist’s status will be shared in due course.
The REV Group Grand Prix goes green at noon ET June 20 on NBCSN.
