Vasser Sullivan Racing has announced today that Zach Veach, who shares the No. 12 Vasser Sullivan Lexus RC F GT3 entry with Frankie Montecalvo, has tested positive for COVID-19 and has been sidelined for this weekend’s IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race at Detroit’s Belle Isle. Instead, Townsend Bell — who raced with the team the last two seasons and in this year’s Rolex 24 At Daytona — will share the driving duties.
Bell (pictured above) was already set to be on-site as a commentator for NBC Sports for the pair of NTT IndyCar Series races.
