Verizon IndyCar Series driver Carlos Huertas has been ruled out of this Sunday’s Indianapolis 500 with an inner ear condition, according to Dr. Terry Trammell, INDYCAR medical consultant.
Huertas will have to undergo further evaluation before being cleared to return to Verizon IndyCar Series competition.
The 23-year-old Colombian is out for the remainder of Indianapolis 500 on-track activities, including Coors Light Carb Day practice.
Huertas was scheduled to start on the outside of Row 6 in the No. 18 Dale Coyne Racing Honda.
Frenchman Tristan Vautier will drive Huertas' car on Sunday and will take the start of the race from the last row.
