Mike Conway has joined Ed Carpenter Racing for the 2014 IndyCar season, the Briton named as the team's driver on road and street courses.
Conway stepped back from racing IndyCar full-time at the end of 2012 after deciding that he no longer wished to race on ovals, although his occasional appearances during '13 included a win in Detroit for Dale Coyne Racing.
"It is great news to be back in IndyCar next year for all the road and street courses," said Conway.
"I had a lot of fun this year in the select races that I could do, and I hope that I can continue my success with Ed Carpenter Racing next year."
Owner/driver Carpenter, who claimed pole for this year's Indianapolis 500, will continue to race the car at oval events.
"We couldn't be happier to welcome Mike Conway to the Ed Carpenter Racing family," said Carpenter.
"We are very proud of the group of people we have assembled, and bringing Mike into the fold creates an opportunity for us to show even more value to our partners and strengthen our team by competing for victories at every single event in the 2014 IndyCar Series."
