Felix Rosenqvist Cleared for Mid-Ohio Race

Felix Rosenqvist has been cleared to race in the Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course July 4, Arrow McLaren SP announced June 29.

Rosenqvist was involved in a crash during the first race of the IndyCar Grand Prix of Detroit two weeks ago. The incident occurred after the Swede slammed into the tire barrier after it appeared the Chevrolet’s throttle had stuck while he was entering the sixth turn of the Detroit street circuit.

Since then, Oliver Askew and Kevin Magnussen have both filled the seat for the 29-year-old, with Magnussen leading laps at Road America last weekend.
