Tony Kanaan developed a passion for racing after watching his first go kart race at the age of eight. He is best known for being the only driver in the history of Indianapolis 500 to lead the fabled event in each of his first six starts. He won the 2004 Indy Racing League IndyCar Series championship. That season he completed 3,305 laps, becoming the first IndyCar Series driver to complete every possible lap in a season. He also led 889 laps in 13 separate races to establish an IndyCar Series record.
In 1997, he was the Indy Lights champion. A Tony Kanaan appearance in the US 500 at Michigan International Speedway won him his first major victory in the Champ Car World Series. In 2005, he placed second in the championship and won his first pole position for the Indianapolis 500.
Kanaan had a fine 2007 season. He won a series-high five events by taking first place in Japan at Honda’s Twin Ring Motegi track, the Milwaukee Mile, Michigan International Speedway, Kentucky Speedway, and the Detroit Grand Prix.
