The reigning Indianapolis 500 Mile Race champion and Chip Ganassi Racing Teams principal Chip Ganassi confirmed the move during a news conference at the Shell and Pennzoil Grand Prix of Houston.
Ironically, 6 years ago, the Brazilian had turned down an offer from Ganassi in August 2008 to join the team; instead signing an extension with Andretti-Green.
Kanaan will join Dario Franchitti, a longtime friend who were teammates at Andretti Green Racing, two-time series champion Scott Dixon and Charlie Kimball to comprise a four-car lineup for 2014.
He'll drive a Honda-powered car with primary sponsorship from NTT Data.
