Ganassi turns to familiar hand of Ryan Briscoe to drive 4th car for 2014 IndyCar season

Chip Ganassi has hired IndyCar veteran Ryan Briscoe to fill the final spot on his four-car team.

The announcement came Friday in Indianapolis.

Briscoe has driven previously for Roger Penske, wining the Indianapolis 500 pole in 2012, and Ganassi, with whom he finished 12th at Indy this year. He made six more starts in 2013 with Panther Racing but did not finish higher than 13th. Briscoe also began his IndyCar career with Ganassi in 2005 but was replaced after that season.

Ganassi also announced Tony Kanaan will drive the No. 10 car, previously occupied by four-time series champ Dario Franchitti. Kanaan and Franchitti are good friends.

Briscoe joins a team that includes Scott Dixon, the reigning series champ; Kanaan, the reigning 500 winner; and emerging American star Charlie Kimball.
