Kevin Magnussen, fresh from his first victory in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Series, will make his NTT IndyCar Series debut this weekend in the REV Group Grand Prix at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisc.

Magnussen will replace injured Felix Rosenqvist for Arrow McLaren SP. Rosenqvist was injured in a scary head-on crash with the wall during the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix race on Belle Isle on June 13. Though Rosenqvist was not said to be seriously injured, he was not cleared to drive this weekend.

For Magnussen, it will be a homecoming of sorts, as he drove 19 races for McLaren in Formula 1 in 2014. Magnussen will team with Pato O'Ward this weekend and have the opportunity to race against his former Haas F1 Team Formula 1 teammate and current Dale Coyne Racing driver Romain Grosjean.

Grosjean and Magnussen were teammates at Haas from 2017 through 2020.

Magnussen won at Belle Isle in a Cadillac DPi for Chip Ganassi Racing. He plans to return to the IMSA team for the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen, June 24-27 at Watkins Glen.

The REV Group Grand Prix at Road America is June 20 and will be broadcast beginning at 12:30 p.m. on NBCSN.
