Popular INDYCAR veteran Tony Kanaan will chase a second Indianapolis 500 victory in 2023 in a one-off appearance with Arrow McLaren SP.

Kanaan’s Indy 500 entry will be a fourth Chevrolet-powered Dallara fielded by AMSP under first-year Racing Director Gavin Ward. The 2013 Indy 500 champion with KV Racing Technology-SH Racing, Kanaan will be competing in his 22nd running of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” on May 28.

Kanaan joins the McLaren camp for the race’s 107th edition after a third-place finish at IMS last May 29 in the No. 1 Chip Ganassi Racing Honda. Led by race-winner Marcus Ericsson of Sweden, CGR capped a dominant Month of May by placing two cars in the top three. Kanaan recorded the fifth top-three finish of his 500 career in his second consecutive Indy 500 start for team-owner Chip Ganassi.

Kanaan will be teamed with AMSP newcomer Alexander Rossi _ winner of the 100th Indy 500 in May 2016 with Andretti Autosport _ as well as native Mexican Pato O’Ward and Felix Rosenqvist of Sweden. 

“I feel extremely lucky to get another shot racing in the Indy 500,” said Kanaan, a native of Brazil who will turn 48 on Dec. 31. “I’m excited to work with Pato, Felix and Alexander and race with the Arrow McLaren SP team. My biggest battle in last year’s race was against these three drivers, so working with them and driving with them will be exciting for all of us.”
