Oliver Askew’s second NTT IndyCar Series race in a week is the perfect opportunity for the American to show what he can do.
Askew drove in place of Felix Rosenqvist at Arrow McLaren SP in Sunday’s Detroit Grand Prix race 2 and this weekend he will drive in place of Rinus Veekay this weekend with Ed Carpenter Racing at Road America.
Askew lost his Arrow McLaren SP drive at the end of last season but has been working as a driver coach for the Indy Lights championship this year.
In Detroit race two, Askew suffered a mechanical issue and ended the race in 25th place.
Askew will be hoping that this weekend will show teams what he can do so that can come back full-time to the NTT IndyCar Series in 2022.
Ed Carpenter Racing have shown great progress in 2021 with Rinus Veekay taking his first IndyCar Series win last month in the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis so Askew has the tools available to him to fight for victory this weekend.
