Chicago - French driver Sebastien Bourdais was given the green light to return to racing on Wednesday following injuries sustained in a crash during Indy 500 qualifying. 

IndyCar medical director Geoffrey Billows said an examination of the 38-year-old Dale Coyne Racing driver showed he was fit to resume racing. 

Four-time IndyCar champion Bourdais suffered multiple fractures to his hip and pelvis following high-speed crash on May 20. 

Billows said Bourdais was evaluated by orthopaedic consultant Dr. Kevin Scheid on Tuesday before being cleared to return. 

Bourdais had also undergone a medical evaluation in a driving test at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on July 31.
