After experiencing concussion-like symptoms following a crash in Saturday qualifying, Dale Coyne Racing’s Esteban Gutierrez has been cleared to drive in the Honda Indy Toronto (3:00 p.m., CNBC). The formal announcement from the Verizon IndyCar Series is below.

Gutierrez was in position to advance out of his group prior to the incident, which occurred in the final corner leading onto the front straight away. However, because his crash caused a red flag, Gutierrez lost his two fastest laps and will start today’s race in 21st.

Gutierrez is expected to participate in morning warm-up for the Verizon IndyCar Series, which is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. ET.

Meanwhile the Dale Coyne Racing has completed its build up of the No. 18 UNIFIN Honda following a late night’s work.
