“I feel extremely lucky to get another shot racing in the Indianapolis 500,” Kanaan said in a team release. “I’m excited to work with Pato (O’Ward), Felix and Alexander (Rossi) and race with the Arrow McLaren SP team. My biggest battle in last year’s race was against these three drivers, so working with them and driving with them will be exciting for all of us.”

The 47-year-old Kanaan has earned one Indy 500 victory in his 21 starts, coming in 2013. Additionally, he’s earned four podiums in the event and won the series championship in 2004.

In 2022, he finished third in the race.

Good team, he should be a contender for sure. I wouldn’t mind seeing TK win another Indy 500 before he hangs up the helmet.
