INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Michel Jourdain Jr. will return to the Indianapolis 500 with Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing.
The team announced Tuesday that Jourdain will drive the No. 17 Honda with sponsorship from Office Depot Mexico. The team will field three entries in the 500.
Jourdain finished 19th in last year's race driving for Rahal.
Jourdain and Rahal have been victorious together in the Champ Car Series, in 2003 at Montreal and Milwaukee.
Jourdain was the youngest driver to start a Champ Car race when he competed at Long Beach at 19, and he went on to make 152 starts in CART and Champ Car from 1996 through 2004.
He also ran the 1996 Indy 500, qualifying eighth and finishing 13th.
Jourdain also competed sporadically in NASCAR's second-tier Nationwide Series from 2005 through 2008.
