Malukas, 22, is entering his third season in the IndyCar Series but first with Arrow McLaren after being confirmed to its 2024 lineup in last year’s season finale at Laguna Seca.

According to a team representative, the Malukas sustained the injury while “biking out west.”

Although a bill has been confirmed, the current plan is for him to undergo an operation on Tuesday afternoon.

It is not known at this time if the Chicago-born Lithuanian American be sidelined for any races to start the year.

“From there we’ll have a better understanding of a recovery window,” said the team representative, via an email Monday night.

Arrow McLaren signed Malukas to drive his No. 6 Chevrolet following the contract fallout drama surrounding reigning and two-time IndyCar Series champion Alex Palouwho opted to remain with Chip Ganassi Racing despite a previously agreed contract with McLaren.

Malukas spent each of the past two years driving for Dale Coyne Racing with HMD Motorsports, scoring two podiums (both in St. Louis), including a runner-up, in 34 starts.
