TORONTO (AP) _ Paul Tracy may have found a new home in Indy-car racing.

Tracy, who was abruptly fired by Team Penske last week, reportedly has struck a deal to drive for Team Kool Green on the PPG CART circuit next year.

A Team Green spokeswoman wouldn't confirm the story Tuesday, saying a conference call on Wednesday would detail ``plans for next season.''

Tracy, 28, of Canada, was fired by Penske after an up-and-down year that saw him win three consecutive races in midseason before slumping badly the last third of the year. He finished fifth in the driver standings.

Tracy wouldn't be the first Canadian driver for Team Green. Jacques Villeneuve won the CART drivers' title with Team Green in 1995 before jumping to Formula One.

American Parker Johnstone raced for Green this season, finishing 16th in the standings.

Tracy, who has 13 career victories on the PPG CART World Series circuit, began his Indy-car career as a test driver and part-time racer for the Penske team. He became a regular for Penske in 1993, moved to Newman-Hass Racing for 1995, but returned to Penske in 1996.
