F1 veteran Barrichello to race in IndyCar in 2012
Brazilian Formula 1 veteran Rubens Barrichello to race in IndyCar series this season
By The Associated Press

SAO PAULO (AP) ' Formula One veteran Rubens Barrichello says he will join the IndyCar series this season.

Barrichello announced Thursday that he has reached a deal to race for KV Racing Technology and will make his debut at the season opener on March 25 in St. Petersburg, Fla.

The 39-year-old Brazilian will participate in all 16 IndyCar races on the calendar this year, including the five on ovals. He had said there was a chance he would skip the ovals because of safety concerns brought on by his family, but ended up reaching an agreement to race on all tracks.

Barrichello drove for Williams in F1 last season but lost his spot to countryman Bruno Senna, ending a 19-year career in the series.
