The British driver was injured when he crashed in practice on Saturday. He was initially checked, cleared and released from the infield car center, but went to a Pennsylvania hospital later that day because he felt ill.

Hawksworth was diagnosed with a heart contusion and held overnight for observation. He was released Sunday and had to be seen by IndyCar medical director Dr. Michael Olinger for clearance to race.

Hawksworth was cleared Tuesday to race this weekend at Iowa. The rookie has three top-10 finishes in IndyCar this season driving for BHA/BBM with Curb-Agajanian.
