Indianapolis 500 winner Tony Kanaan will not return to KV Racing next season and is finalizing a deal to join Chip Ganassi Racing, The Associated Press has learned.
Two people familiar with Kanaan’s plan said Friday that the Brazilian is nearing a signed contract with Ganassi. They spoke on condition of anonymity because Ganassi has not announced the move.
The 38-year-old Kanaan will join a lineup that includes Indy 500 winners Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon, and Charlie Kimball. Franchitti and Dixon have combined to win six IndyCar titles, and Kanaan won it in 2004.Charlie Kimball, Chip Ganassi Racing, Dario Franchitti, IndyCar, Scott Dixon, Tony Kanaan
