IndyCar: Tony Kanaan set to join Ganassi in 2014

According to reports, veteran IndyCar driver Tony Kanaan will join the Target Chip Ganassi squad for the 2014 season and drive alongside Dario Franchitti, Scott Dixon and Charlie Kimball.

Although the deal has not been signed yet, we believe that the 2013 Indianapolis 500 champion will be announced shortly as the new member of the four-entry Ganassi team.

Kanaan has been previously associated with KV Racing Technology for the past three years and with Andretti Green Racing/Andretti Autosport (where he won the 2004 IndyCar championship) before that.

Some weeks ago, the Brazilian had contacts with the Sprint Cup Joe Gibbs Racing team but, has it was the case with other IndyCar teams, he would have had to bring a budget to have a drive.

An official announcement could be made shortly although all parties involved have refused so far to confirm the reports.
