Tony Kanaan Biography

Tony Kanaan is one of the most popular and richest Race Car Driver who was born on December 31, 1974 in Salvador, Salvador, Brazil. Brazilian Indycar racer who won the Indy Racing League championship in 2004.

He won his first IndyCar championship as a member of Michael Andretti ‘s race team.

Kanaan originally was going to drive for de Ferran Dragon Racing, owned by Kanaan’s former competitor and countryman Gil de Ferran. Just days prior to the season-opening Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on the Streets of St. Petersburg the deal fell through and Kanaan was without a team. Kanaan then began to drive for KV Racing Technology-Lotus, also owned by another of Kanaan’s former rivals Jimmy Vasser, in the No. 82 GEICO/Lotus Cars Dallara IR5-Honda Indy V8 HI7R in a car based on the Lotus 38-Ford V8 that Jim Clark drove to win the 1965 Indianapolis 500 (the first rear-engine car to win the race). At St. Petersburg Kanaan finished in 3rd place after having a race-long battle with future teammate Simona de Silvestro. Kanaan followed this result with a 6th and an 8th at the Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park and the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach on the Streets of Long Beach to remain 3rd in points. At the Indianapolis 500 Kanaan started 22nd and in the race he battled with Scott Dixon and Graham Rahal in the late stages of the race, running as high as 2nd place. Kanaan eventually made a pit stop and finished 4th behind friend Dan Wheldon, J.R. Hildebrand and Rahal. Kanaan started on the pole position at the Firestone Twin 275s Race #2 at Texas Motor Speedway (the starting lineup for the race was determined by a random draw) and in the race Kanaan finished in 5th place. At the Iowa Corn Indy 250 at Iowa Speedway Kanaan battled with teammate Takuma Sato, Marco Andretti, Oriol Servia and Dario Franchitti. Kanaan finished 2nd to former teammate Andretti after Sato crashed, Servia stalled after making a pit stop during the caution for Sato’s crash and Franchitti dropped to 5th. Kanaan was involved in a spectacular crash at the MoveThatBlock.com Indy 225 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway with Andretti and Tomas Scheckter that had Kanaan flip down the track’s back straightaway and at one he hit a portable toilet located next to the track and finished 22nd. In August it was announced that Kanaan signed on for another year with KV Racing Technology according to team owner Jimmy Vasser. At the Baltimore Grand Prix on the Streets of Baltimore Kanaan finished 3rd after starting in 27th (last) place due to a crash with Hélio Castroneves when Kanaan got airborne after running over the right side of Castroneves’ car when Castroneves was braking. At the season-ending IZOD IndyCar World Championship at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Kanaan qualified on the pole position and led the first 12 laps of the race when it was stopped when Wade Cunningham made contact with James Hinchcliffe in turn 1. Cunningham and Hildebrand then made contact when Cunningham swerved and Hildebrand drove over the rear of his car. Hildebrand’s car became airborne and Cunningham collected Jay Howard on the inside and then Townsend Bell on the outside before crashing into the wall. Attempting to avoid the crash ahead, Vitor Meira lost control, spinning inward collecting both Charlie Kimball and E. J. Viso. At the same time Meira lost control, Scheckter was also attempting to avoid the first crash by rapidly slowing down on the outside. This led to Paul Tracy crashing into the back of Scheckter and a rapidly approaching Pippa Mann to launch over the top of Tracy after jerking to the outside to avoid crashing into Alex Lloyd. Kanaan’s friend Wheldon (who started in 34th and last place in an attempt to win the race and collect $5 million from series’ sponsors Verizon Wireless and GoDaddy.com to split evenly with a random fan) was running in 24th place and had slowed down from 220 miles per hour to 165 miles per hour when he ran over the rear end of Kimball’s car and went airborne. Wheldon was pronounced dead on arrival at University Medical Center of Southern Nevada at 1:54 p.m. of blunt force trauma. The race was immediately cancelled and removed from the record books. The cars that survived the accident (with the exception of Alex Tagliani, who was driving the same car that Wheldon used to win the Indianapolis 500) drove five laps around the track in three-abreast style, similar to the style used at the Indianapolis 500 as tribute to Wheldon. The American ABC broadcast showed Kanaan and Dario Franchitti (friend of Kanaan and Wheldon) crying due to Wheldon’s death during the five laps. Kanaan finished out the season ranked fifth in points with 366 points.
