Verizon Team Penske’s Will Power will be back in the car next week. The Australian, who was earlier today cleared to get back behind the wheel of an IndyCar after missing the season opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg will test at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham Alabama.
The test is to make up for the fact that he missed the session there on Tuesday where the rest of the Verizon IndyCar Series field tested the 2016 aero kits.
Power also confirmed that the inner ear infection that he has been suffering from has now cleared up.
The next Verizon IndyCar Series race, the Phoenix Grand Prix at Phoenix International Raceway takes place from April 1-2.
