Askew gets call from old team as emergency replacement

DETROIT (AP) — Oliver Askew got a late call from former team Arrow McLaren SP to be the replacement driver for Felix Rosenqvist in Sunday’s IndyCar race at Bell Isle. Askew was fired by the team last year and replaced by Rosenqvist. But the team needed an emergency driver after Rosenqvist was hospitalized following a crash in Saturday’s race. Askew was at the track with his helmet but needed to borrow the firesuit Juan Pablo Montoya wore in the Indy 500 and a pair of racing shoes from Alex Palou. It is the first career start at Detroit for the 24-year-old.
