Michael Andretti hires Conway as team's 4th driver
Michael Andretti's IndyCar team has added Mike Conway as its fourth driver for the 2011 season.
Andretti Autosports made the official announcement Tuesday, though the team has not named a primary sponsor for Conway's car.
The 27-year-old English native drove for Dreyer & Reinbold in 2010 but missed the final four months of the season after a frightening crash late in last year's Indianapolis 500. He had multiple fractures in his lower left leg and a compression fracture in his back.
He will join three Americans on Andretti's team - Marco Andretti, Ryan Hunter-Reay and Danica Patrick.
Conway had three top-10 finishes last season.
