Green Back With PT

Today it was announced by KV Racing Technology that Barry Green would return to American Open-Wheel racing, as strategist for Paul Tracy and the #15 Geico Honda-Powered Dallara in this months Indianapolis 500. Tracy and Green last worked together in 2002 when PT returned to the Brickyard for the first time in 7 years driving for Team Green. After the controversial finish and failed protest, Green sold off the team to his brother Kim, Michael Andretti and Kevin Savoree, renaming it AGR. Over the 2009-2010 off season Andretti bought out the team, and is now the sole owner of Andretti Autosport.

"I'm very excited to return to the Indianapolis 500 and work with Paul again. Paul and I both feel we have some unfinished business at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I want to thank Kevin Kalkhoven and Jimmy Vasser for this opportunity to assist Paul and his GEICO crew throughout the month. I have worked with John Dick on numerous occasions and I believe we have a strong effort to challenge for an Indy 500 victory." - Barry Green

"With my tenure at Team Kool Green, Barry called every one of my races and called all of my race wins including winning the 2002 Indianapolis 500. When Jimmy and I sat down at Long Beach to discuss our Indy 500 plans, Jimmy told me he couldn't be as hands-on with my car as he was last year. He asked me to explore the right person to help me at Indy. It didn't take long to think of Barry. He has the same desire and commitment to winning as I do. Obviously, he was my choice to work with me this year. I know we have some unfinished business at the Speedway." - Paul Tracy

"Paul asked me about bringing Barry in for the Indy 500 and I was elated. I had to race against Barry's team for many years, and I can appreciate his expertise in calling races. Having him with KV Racing Technology gives us an added bonus as we prepare to enter the month of May and the biggest race in the world. I am very pleased with our four-car lineup for the Indy 500." - Jimmy Vasser

  2. Funny, I thought that Tim Cindric was still the one calling Helio's races. Well, whatever. Back together again, right?
