Brazilian Joao Paulo de Oliveira will join the Conquest Racing team for the IndyCar round at Motegi this weekend.
The 30-year-old has made a name for himself in Japan over the past years, clinching the 2010 Formula Nippon championship.
He is a two-time winner at the Motegi road course where the IndyCar race will take place on.
De Oliveira dominated the race there from pole position just a few weeks ago.
The Motegi event will be de Oliveira's debut in the IndyCar series.
