IZOD IndyCar Series driver and 2003 Champ Car World Series champion Paul Tracy says that 2012 will be his last season racing in IndyCar–if he secures a full-season ride next year.
Tracy is a part-time IndyCar competitor again this season. He has not contested anything close to a full-schedule since he ran 12 of 14 races during Champ Car's final season, in 2007.
"If I can put together a full-season deal, next year will probably be my last," Tracy told AutoWeek. "If I only run Indy and a couple of other races, I'll decide what I'm doing after that.
"I could do Indy as [a one-off] for a long time. I could be Davey Hamilton."
Tracy turns 43 in December. Hamilton competed in this year's Indianapolis 500 a few weeks before his 49th birthday.
