The Associated Press has learned that Indianapolis 500 winner Tony Kanaan will not return to KV Racing next season and is finalizing a deal to join Chip Ganassi Racing.

Two people familiar with Kanaan's plan said Friday that the Brazilian is nearing a signed contract with Ganassi. They spoke on condition of anonymity because Ganassi has not announced the move.

The 38-year-old Kanaan will join a lineup that includes Indy 500 winners Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon, and Charlie Kimball. Franchitti and Dixon have combined to win six IndyCar titles.

Kanaan is the 2004 series champion. He joined KV Racing before the 2011 season when his sponsorship ran out with Andretti Autosport, and he was left scrambling for a ride. He scored his breakthrough win at Indy in May.
