The new Superstar Racing Experience (SRX) announced Paul Tracy as the third driver Wednesday for its short track series that will begin next season.
Tracy, an IndyCar on NBC analyst and 2003 champion in the CART Champ Car series, joins Tony Stewart and Tony Kanaan in a lineup that is expected to have a dozen drivers competing in six races next year.
SRX was co-founded by NASCAR Hall of Famers Stewart and Ray Evernham and was unveiled July 13. Several drivers have expressed interest in the new circuit, which is modeled on the International Race of Champions (IROC) series that matched drivers from various auto racing disciplines in equally prepared cars for an annual four-race series for 30 years
SRX has yet to reveal a schedule or tracks, but its Twitter account has hinted that it has signed five of an expected 12 drivers. Kanaan and Tracy were both on Evernham’s SRX driver dream list, which also included Scott Dixon, Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Juan Pablo Montoya.
