Tracy To Take Another Shot At Indy 500 Victory In Fourth KV Entry

IMS Tickets | IMS Online Store

Paul Tracy won the CART championship in 2003, but the one trophy missing from his mantle is the one he's wanted the most - the Borg-Warner Trophy from the Indianapolis 500. 

Tracy, 41, will get another shot May 30. The Canadian will drive the No. 15 GEICO-KV Racing Technology car at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Opening day is May 15. 

"I want to thank (co-owners) Kevin Kalkhoven and Jimmy Vasser of KVRT and GEICO for the opportunity to return to the world's biggest auto race," Tracy said at a news conference preceding IZOD IndyCar Series qualifying for the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. "I have won races and championships at the top level during my racing career, but what I'm missing is a win at Indy. 

"I feel I have some unfinished business at the Brickyard and, with the support of GEICO and an outstanding team like KV Racing Technology, I feel good about our chances at this year's '500.''' 

Tracy, who will join KV Racing Technology regulars E.J. Viso, Mario Moraes and Takuma Sato, will attempt to compete in Indy 500 for the seventh time. He was runner-up to Helio Castroneves in 2002 and finished ninth last year. 

"It is tremendous to bring Paul back to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway again this year," Vasser said. "Paul was very competitive last year in the GEICO machine in his first Indy 500 in seven years. After last year's return to the Speedway, we believe Paul will be a contender for the win."
