We noted Juan Pablo Montoya would be making his first Race of Champions appearance in a separate post this morning, and a fellow veteran Verizon IndyCar Series driver has been named for a return.

Tony Kanaan will make his first start at the Race of Champions since 2004 at Stade de France in Paris, and will be part of the grid for the all-star event in Miami next January.

“I absolutely loved when I raced at the Race Of Champions in France back in 2004 and I always wanted to do it again. I live in Miami, so having the race here in my backyard is the perfect opportunity to be part of it and to race against the biggest names from motorsport around the world. I’m looking forward to seeing what ROC has put together for us to race at the Marlins Park. ROC is going to be a great addition to the roster of events hosted in Miami.”
