Jack Harvey isn’t getting the attention that he deserves this year. Meyer Shank Racing went from an alliance with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports in 2019 to Andretti Autosport in 2020. Harvey, is reaping the benefits of that move.
Harvey, scored dual top 10 finishes in the last race weekend on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course with being sixth on Friday and eighth on Saturday in his No. 60 Honda. He was also third in his first start on the 2.439-mile circuit back in 2019 to get three top eight finishes in four tries.
“To come out of Indy with an eighth and a sixth, it maybe is a little less than what we might have hoped,” Harvey said. “But we’ve been so consistently qualified in the top 10 and racing in the top 10. Outside of a little bit of bad luck, I think we have finished quite well. Now we just need to figure out what steps we need to take to get to the podium.”
Still, he’s ending 2020 strong. He’s had six top 10 finishes in 13 races run this year. He had four in his previous 19 starts of his career. He heads to St. Pete which was a place where he came home 10th in last year’s season opener.
“I’m really excited to get back to St. Pete, It’s such a shame that we didn’t get to race there earlier this year, but I’m really thrilled that we can have it as a season finale instead of a season opener,” said Harvey. “I hope it’s a really great weekend for us. We’ve had some great momentum and some great consistency, and hopefully we can have a solid result to end the season on a high note.”
