Add former Indianapolis 500 champion Tony Kanaan to the list of fans who just can't shake off Taylor Swift.

A paint scheme of Swift will fill the space on Kanaan's car this weekend at the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix as part of a promotion with her label, Big Machine Records. Kanaan will drive the No. 10 Taylor Swift Chevrolet in conjunction with her Saturday night performance in Detroit.

Swift kicked off her The 1989 World Tour this month, and Kanaan says he hopes some of Swift's luck from last weekend's Billboard Music Awards rubs off on him in Detroit. Swift won eight awards; Kanaan is still looking for his first win of the season.

Big Machine is the official entertainment partner of Chip Ganassi Racing.
