    IndyCar champion Scott Dixon will rejoin the De Ferran Motorsports team for this month's Petit Le Mans.

    The 29-year-old New Zealander, who had joined the team for last year's event and this year's race at Sebring, will team up with regular drivers Gil de Ferran and Simon Pagenaud in the 10-hour race at the Road Atlanta.

    "We are delighted that Scott will be joining us for Petit Le Mans this year," said team owner de Ferran. "This will be Scott's third outing with our team.

    "Not only has he fitted very well with our organization but Scott was also outstanding in all previous times he drove for us

    "To have someone of his caliber driving with us is very good news indeed."

    Dixon, who gave the team pole position for the Sebring 12 hours earlier this year, was thankful to his Ganassi team for allowing him to race with de Ferran.

    "I'm really pleased that Chip has given me another opportunity to join Gil and his team. I've always enjoyed the chances I've gotten in the past to join him and Simon in the ALMS and, specifically, at Petit Le Mans.

    "I know that de Ferran Motorsports always assembles a strong team and I'm looking forward to doing my part to hopefully put us in a position to be in contention at the end."

    Assuming that this is a sign that Dixon goes to Deferran next season, and Danica goes to Nascar, who will Ganassi have driving for him next year in Indycar?
