Bourdais Cleared To Drive

INDYCAR, the sanctioning body of the Verizon IndyCar Series, announced Wednesday that Sebastien Bourdais has been cleared to race.

Bourdais was injured in a Turn 2 crash on his 3rd lap of his first attempt on the first day of Qualifications for last May's 101st Indianapolis 500. The French driver suffered multiple pelvis fractures and a right hip fracture.

The 36-time race winner, completed a medical evaluation test at Mid-Ohio July 31.

Since the incident, James Davison, Esteban Gutierrez and Tristan Vautier have filled in to pilot the No. 18 Dale Coyne car.

It's likely Dale Coyne racing will continue to utilize a replacement driver for the next two rounds on ovals at Pocono and Gateway. A return for the final two races at Watkins Glen and Sonoma is very possible.
