Tracy Gets IndyCar Ride For Watkins Glen

Great news!
I'm going to the Glen again this year for the IndyCar race and as an added bonus so will Scarborough native, Paul Tracy. Check it out:
"Paul Tracy has signed a contract to drive for Dreyer & Reinbold Racing in the Izod IndyCar Series event on July 4 at Watkins Glen International.
Tracy will be the third different driver to replace Mike Conway, who was injured in a crash at the end of the Indianapolis 500. Conway is expected to miss at least three months with fractures to his back and leg.
Tomas Scheckter drove the No. 24 car at Texas Motor Speedway, and Graham Rahal was in it on Sunday at Iowa Speedway. D&R team co-owner Robbie Buhl said he's working on a plan that would keep Rahal in the fold for Watkins Glen, likely in the team's No. 23 car.
Tracy, 41, has not started an IndyCar race this season. With KV Racing Technology, his car was withdrawn from the Indy 500 and it missed the show. He is scheduled to return to KV for next month's two Canadian races in Toronto and Edmonton."
