de Ferran Dragon Racing announced today at a Press Conference held in Brazil the signing of IZOD IndyCar Series veteran Tony Kanaan to compete for the team in 2011. After 8 season with Andretti Autosport, Kanaan's long-time sponsor 7-11 decided not to return as the primary sponsor on the #11 entry, leaving the Brazilian ridless.
Kanaan's signing with de Ferran Dragon leaves the future of Raphael Matos in question. Matos, the 2008 Firestone Indy Lights Champion, competed with the team in both 2009 & 2010.
The sponsorship package allowing TK on track will be announced in 2011, according to Kanaan.
