IndyCar rejigs qualifying setup

Late race deals certainly didn't seem to do Tony Kanaan any harm in the opening races of the season, who is third in the points standings despite appearing to be without a 2011 seat until just days before the opening race at St Petersburg after his deal to drive at de Ferran Dragon Racing collapsed in February over lack of sponsorship.

Jay Penske has now been able to pull together the wreckage of that team to revive the Dragon brand and field Tracy for at least five races, albeit without his former partners.

"After discussing options with my former co-owners, Steve Luczo and Gil de Ferran, [and] with their full support ... I am extremely pleased to continue the Dragon name with a team that is substantially the same as our 2010 lineup,” said Penske, founder of digital media and publishing company MMC, about the revival of the team.
