KV Racing Technology has announced that it has extended its deal with Paul Tracy to cover the IndyCar Series' two Canadian events.
Former Champ Car champion Tracy has joined KV in a second car alongside Mario Moraes for this weekend's Indianapolis 500, and has qualified 13th for the race.
The Canadian remains hugely popular in his home country, and his entry for the Toronto and Edmonton races in July will be a major boost to both events.
KV team co-owner Kevin Kalkhoven said Tracy's performance at Indianapolis so far had proved he still has a lot to offer the championship.
"Paul is one of the greatest and most exciting drivers in the history of the sport and has shown here at Indianapolis that he still has what it takes to be competitive," he said. "We look forward to having him drive for KVRT in front of his countrymen."
Tracy came from 16th on the grid to fourth at Edmonton last year in a one-off drive in a Vision Racing entry run by Derrick Walker's team, and hopes he can achieve similar success on home ground with KV.
"I want to thank Kevin Kalkhoven and Jimmy Vasser for the opportunity to continue my career and race in my home country," Tracy said.
"I feel very fortunate to be able to race in front of my hometown fans with a very competitive team. KVRT has shown that it can compete with the top teams in the series and I am confident that we will have strong performances at both the Canadian races."
