After three drivers broke through for their first IndyCar wins in the 2021, Jack Harvey moves closer to the top of the list of drivers next in line to reach the top step of the podium in 2022. The 28 year old Britt will move over to Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing after spending the last three seasons with Meyer Shank Racing. Harvey just completed his second full season in IndyCar and has had his fair share of ups and downs. After teammate Helio Castroneves won the 105th Indianapolis 500, Meyer Shank Racing awarded him a full time ride in 2022. Harvey was free to sign elsewhere, and landed the #45 Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Honda, completing a three car effort for RLL alongside veteran Graham Rahal and rookie Christian Lungaard. 

When the green flag flies at St. Pete, Harvey will be making his 50th career IndyCar start. With just one podium finish to his credit, Harvey will have a rejuvenated confidence in 2021 with a new team. ““I’m incredibly excited to be joining Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing. I’ve been working towards this moment for my entire career and I’m so honored and thankful for the trust Bobby, Mike, David and Piers (Phillips, president) have placed in me. Hy-Vee has massively committed to elevating INDYCAR as a series and I’m honored to be representing their brand on track in the No. 45. I’m eager to get to work with Graham and the entire team. We have common goals of competing for wins and championships, and I’m confident we’ll be contending from the drop of the green flag next year.  This is an exciting next chapter, and I can’t wait to see what lies ahead.”  

Finding consistency in 2022 will go a long way for Harvey. He had just two top 5 finishes in 2021 while finishing outside the top 15 on eight occasions. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course and Portland seem to be his best tracks on the schedule. His #45 entry is technically the #30 that Takuma Sato has piloted over the last several years. Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing is a year and a half removed from finishing 1st and 3rd in the Indianapolis 500. Harvey, along with teammate Graham Rahal are looking to break out winless streaks in 2022.  

I believe in Jack Harvey and think he will get his first career victory this season. I have very high expectations for the entire Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing organization in 2022. A new look and fresh faces can be the difference a driver needs to get out of a slump and have success, just ask Helio Castroneves at last year’s Indianapolis 500.
