Kanaan to Chip Ganassi Racing

According to Robin Miller, Tony Kanaan will soon a sign a contract to race for Chip Ganassi for the 2009 indycar season.  This move would leave the 2005 Indy 500 champion out of a ride.  The only teams that currently pay the salary in which Wheldon is used to are Penske, AGR, and TCG all of which are doubt full landing spots for Wheldon, leaving only a few options.  One of which would be the up and coming Vision racing who could certanly aford the nearly 3 million dollars a year in which Wheldon is used to.  Other possibale teams could be Rahal Letterman, Newman/Haas/Lanigan, KV or HVM.  You may be asking yourself who might replace Kannan, well AGR has recently signed former F-1 test driver Frank Montagny to its ALMS team, but it could of been just a backup plan in case the Kanaan deal fell through, which it seems might have happend.
