Paul Tracy may have a limited schedule on tap with Dragon Racing and an Indy 500 run set with Dreyer & Reinbold, but he's evidently still resentful that a full-season IndyCar program he thought he had agreed to with KV-Lotus Racing went to Tony Kanaan instead.
"When somebody steals something right out from under you, it leaves a pretty sour taste in your mouth," Tracy told a news conference on Wednesday, held to promote the Edmonton IndyCar race July 24, as reported by the Canadian Press.
Tracy told Canadian reporters that with just days to go before the start of the season, he was set to drive full time with Jimmy Vasser's and Kevin Kalkhoven's team. He said he had a five-year relationship with a sponsor and was being told by the sponsor and the team that everything was agreed.
"The deal was mine. I was going to be in the car. Everything was a go. This was right up until two or three days before they signed Kanaan," said Tracy.
