Paul Tracy will race in Edmonton The field is now full for the two Canadian stops in the 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series. The “Team Oh Canada” field that is.
The Honda Indy Edmonton is elated to announce that Canada’s own Paul Tracy and his KV Racing Technology Team will be on the track at the Honda Indy Edmonton, July 23, 24 and 25.
“To have Paul racing in Edmonton again is very, very exciting,” said Northlands President Ken Knowles. “He’s always been a huge favorite with our fans, and we know that Paul’s a fan of the race track at City Centre Airport. Having Paul and Alex Tagliani, the other key member of Team Oh Canada, race against each other will provide some very exciting moments during the three days in July.”
Tracy, the 2003 ChampCar World Series champion said, “The Honda Indy Edmonton is one of the biggest auto races in all of Canada, and a huge IZOD IndyCar Series event. Competing at Edmonton has been a terrific mental and physical challenge over the years. The fans are not only enthusiastic but they’re also really knowledgeable and they treat me very well, every year. I’m really looking forward to being in Edmonton in late July.”
Team Oh Canada is running promotions with prizes to include access to both team’s garages and hospitality spaces to further promote the Honda Indy Edmonton. Fans attending upcoming races will also be able to collect hero cards of both Paul and Alex, as well as their autographs, and they’ll be given information about the Honda Indy Edmonton and the city of Edmonton.
“We’re inviting IndyCar fans from across North America to take in our event on one of the most challenging courses on the circuit,” Knowles said. “During the next few weeks, fans will be hearing lots more about Paul and Alex promotions allowing contest winners to be part of the drivers’ teams. Fans will also be given the opportunity to bid on Paul and Alex collectibles like gloves, helmets and fire suits during a silent auction.
“Both Paul and Alex are respected athletes and recognized celebrities who will help us draw international attention as well as local fan support for the Honda Indy Edmonton. We’re really looking forward to a great Canadian showdown in Edmonton in a couple of months.”
Tracy has competed in 270 open-wheel events during his career and has established himself as one of the world’s top drivers in open-wheel racing. The resident of Las Vegas, Nevada is among the top 10 in almost every open-wheel career statistical category including wins: 31 (seventh all-time), poles: 25 (ninth all-time), and laps led: 4,231 (seventh all-time).
