A.J. Foyt IV to Drive Klein Tools/Canadian Club Car for Andretti Green Racing in IndyCar Series Finale

Andretti Green Racing announced today that A.J. Foyt IV will drive the #27 Klein Tools/Canadian Club Dallara/Honda/Firestone in the final race of the 2006 IndyCar® Series season Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway.

Foyt IV will replace Dario Franchitti, who sustained a concussion Friday during a qualifying session for the Goodwood Revival at the Goodwood Motor Circuit in Goodwood, England.

Sunday's race will mark the 48th IndyCar® start of Foyt's career and the first since last October at California Speedway.

Foyt will participate in a refresher test behind the wheel of the Klein Tools/Canadian Club car on Thursday afternoon at Chicagoland Speedway under the supervision of IndyCar® Series officials.

A.J. Foyt IV on the PEAK® Antifreeze Indy 300:

"I'm very excited to have an opportunity like this to drive the Klein Tools/Canadian Club car for Andretti Green. It's obviously a great race team and should be a very competitive car on Sunday. We're going to be able to do this at a place where I've got a lot of laps and I expect to have a good, strong weekend."

Michael Andretti, Chief Executive Officer, Andretti Green Racing:

"We're looking forward to having Anthony in the Klein Tools/Canadian Club car this weekend. It's unfortunate that Dario won't be able to drive, but we're confident that Anthony will do a great job for us. He's got a lot of natural talent and we're hoping to give him a fast car this weekend."
