Josef Newgarden

After being evaluated by INDYCAR Medical Director Dr. Geoffrey Billows following NTT INDYCAR SERIES practice Friday morning at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the driver of the No. 2 PPG Team Penske Chevrolet, Josef Newgarden, has been cleared to resume all racing activities.

The next on-track session on the IMS road course is NTT INDYCAR SERIES qualifying scheduled for 1 p.m. ET. The Gallagher Grand Prix is scheduled for noon ET Saturday, July 30.

Newgarden was involved in an incident late in the Hy-Vee Salute to Farmers 300 presented by Google on Sunday at Iowa Speedway, after which he was evaluated and released from the infield care center. Following the conclusion of the race, Newgarden lost consciousness and fell, sustaining a cut on the back of his head.

Two-time series champion Newgarden was evaluated at MercyOne Des Moines Medical Center, and all scans were negative. He was held overnight for evaluation before being released Monday morning.
