Junqueira takes da Matta's seat
The 25 year old Brazilian will make the switch from Ganassi Racing after winning two rounds of the CART series in 2002 in Japan and Denver, and finishing second in the series standings to da Matta.
"I'm happy to join Newman-Haas," said Junqueira. "They have been the team to beat all season long and they have worked hard to win the championship. They have won many races and four championships over the years and they are one of the most experienced teams."
