The Indianapolis 500 on May 28th might be Tony Kanaan’s final NTT IndyCar Series race of his illustrious career, but that doesn’t mean that the 2013 Indianapolis 500 winner and the fan favorite will not be going too far.
Speaking at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Wednesday, TK confirmed that he would be traveling to 12 NTT IndyCar Series races this season and working alongside his partners NTT, 7-Eleven, the series itself, and Arrow McLaren.
The Brazilian has 16 victories, 73 podiums, and 10 NTT P1 Awards in the NTT IndyCar Series. He is looking forward to the 107th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge, driving alongside Pato O’Ward, Felix Rosenqcist, and Alexander Rossi. It is a career that has come full circle as his NTT IndyCar Series race was in 2002, and he started the race from 5th place overall but was forced to retire.
It is only fitting that the Brazilian will end his career where it started, at the Greatest Spectacle In Racing. Kanaan said that he was had thought about retiring two years ago but blamed Jimmie Johnson for his return to the series.
