The SportsXchange

Andretti Autosport added EJ Viso as a driver Thursday, giving the IndyCar team a four-car lineup this season.

"We are happy to welcome E.J. to the team and to again be running four cars," team owner Michael Andretti said in a statement. "He has shown speed in his early years as a driver which we view as very promising, and his personality will lend well to the overall chemistry of the drivers and crew. I'd like to thank Keith and HVM for their assistance in this project."

Viso joins team that includes defending IndyCar champion Ryan Hunter-Reay, James Hinchcliffe and Mario Andretti. He'll drive the No. 5 Team Venezuela PDVSA Chevrolet.

The Caracas, Venezuela native is entering his sixth season in IndyCar. He drove for KV Racing Technologies last season, and has 16 career top-10 finishes.

"I could not ask for more than to get the opportunity to drive for a championship team while representing my country," Viso said in a statement. "After five years in the series I believe I have found the right environment and look forward to having Ryan, James and Marco as teammates. I'm very proud to be able to move into the 2013 season with this new relationship; it's a dream come true."
