The new Superstar Racing Experience (SRX) announced Paul Tracy as the third driver Wednesday for its short track series that will begin next season.

Tracy, an IndyCar on NBC analyst and 2003 champion in the CART Champ Car series, joins Tony Stewart and Tony Kanaan in a lineup that is expected to have a dozen drivers competing in six races next year.

SRX was co-founded by NASCAR Hall of Famers Stewart and Ray Evernham and was unveiled July 13. Several drivers have expressed interest in the new circuit, which is modeled on the International Race of Champions (IROC) series that matched drivers from various auto racing disciplines in equally prepared cars for an annual four-race series for 30 years

SRX has yet to reveal a schedule or tracks, but its Twitter account has hinted that it has signed five of an expected 12 drivers. Kanaan and Tracy were both on Evernham’s SRX driver dream list, which also included Scott Dixon, Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Juan Pablo Montoya.

Here’s the release from SRX:

Superstar Racing Experience is excited to announce the addition of Paul Tracy to the inaugural SRX driver lineup.

Tracy, a Canadian-born former IndyCar, CART and Champ Car driver has totaled 31 wins, 74 podiums and 25 pole positions throughout his career. During the 2003 season, Tracy won the CART/Champ Car World Series season title.

Tracy joins Tony Stewart and Tony Kanaan as the third confirmed driver for the series that will air Saturday nights in primetime on CBS Television Network in the Summer of 2021.
