"The weekend in Vegas is going to be much more than a race... it's going to be a major event. I'm excited about all of the fun things IndyCar has planned and I can't wait to be a part of it. A season finale like this seems like the proper way to celebrate what has been an action-packed season. I'm looking forward to getting out there with 33 other cars and showing the fans why the IZOD IndyCar Series is the fastest, most versatile form of open-wheel racing in the world."
