INDIANAPOLIS -- Dale Coyne Racing has signed Mike Conway and Pippa Mann for five of the remaining eight IndyCar Series races.

Conway will drive the doubleheader event this weekend in Toronto, as well as the doubleheader in Houston in October. Mann was announced Monday as driver for the October season finale at Fontana.

Coyne has used a variety of drivers for his second entry alongside full-time driver Justin Wilson.

Conway drove for Coyne in Detroit, where he won the first doubleheader and finished third in the second race.

Mann has run three races for Coyne this year, and was 15th on Sunday at Pocono. It's the first race for Coyne in which Mann's car did not have a mechanical failure.

Coyne has not announced who will drive at Mid-Ohio, Sonoma or Baltimore.
