Paul Tracy heading back to Indy
Paul Tracy will be returning to the Indianapolis 500 to race a car for KV Racing Technology, owned by Jimmy Vasser and Kevin Kalkhoven.
Tracy and the team made the announcemt Friday at the Grand Prix of Long Beach. Tracy, a four-time winner at Long Beach, is only going to race in the Indy 500 for KV Racing. When asked if he expected to get any extra time in his team's new car before the Indy 500, Tracy said they don't normally make past winners go through rookie orientation.
He was making reference to the last time he was in the Indy 500 in 2002. He finished second to Helio Castroneves on a debatable pass under caution.
Tracy has raced in the Indy 500 six times. Tracy has been in three IndyCar Series races, most recently last year in Edmonton where he finished fourth.
