Jack Harvey wins Indy Lights race at Indianapolis
Jack Harvey moved into the Indy Lights points lead with his victory in the Indy Lights Freedom 100 at Indianapolis on Friday
The Brit started from the outside of the front row alongside Ethan Ringel, and the pair spent the entire race trading places at the front.
They'd just begun to navigate lapped traffic when Harvey moved into the lead for what would be the final time.
Just one lap later, Ed Jones, who had come into the weekend leading the championship, spun into the Turn 4 wall after suffering a puncture with three laps to go.
The Carlin driver was unhurt, but he left a debris field that forced the race to finish under yellows, thereby protecting Harvey from any further attacks.
Scott Anderson came out on top in a spirited battle with RC Enerson for the final podium place to round out a Schmidt 1-2-3-4.
No other cars were ever in contention. Sean Rayhall had started on the second row, but he fell back to sixth early on and was dropped along with the rest of the pack when the lead four broke away.
Felix Sarralles exited the race with a mechanical failure, while Carlin's Max Chilton was unable to take the start due to an unspecified problem with his car.
