In a press conference held today at the Long Beach Grand Prix, KV Racing Technology confirmed Paul Tracy for the Indianapolis 500. The 41-year-old, Tracy will pilot the #15 Geico Honda-Powered Dallara at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in May for his 7th attempt at the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
As of now Indianapolis is the only official race for the team, however, KV and Tracy are actively working on a program for the 2 Canadian races (Toronto & Edmonton) at a minimum.
“I want to thank Kevin Kalkhoven and Jimmy Vasser of KVRT and GEICO for the opportunity to return to the world’s biggest auto race. I have won races and championships at the top level during my racing career, but what I’m missing is a win at Indy.
I feel I have some unfinished business at the Brickyard and, with the support of GEICO and an outstanding team like KV Racing Technology, I feel good about our chances at this year’s ‘500.’ ’’ - Paul Tracy
“It is tremendous to bring Paul back to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway again this year. Paul was very competitive last year in the GEICO machine in his first Indy 500 in seven years. After last year’s return to the Speedway, we believe Paul will be a contender for the win.” - Jimmy Vasser
