Among all of the teams competing in the Indianapolis 500 this year, Dreyer & Reinbold Racing is the only one that is not running another IndyCar race on the schedule. The team is unique in that regard, but this is a full-time racing organization.
Outside of Indianapolis, the DRR crew stays busy with a full-time Nitro Rallycross entry. Team owner Dennis Reinbold values their experience. “With IndyCar veterans, ranging from engineers all the way through our technicians, it is really an advantage that we have. We felt really well prepared with Indy 500 mechanics. We have won a lot of races and championships in rallycross and we keep active and racing all year long.”
The team now has a pair of drivers in Sage Karam and SantinoFerrucci that share a very similar driving style.
“I’m pleased how Sage and Santino have worked together,” Reinbold said. “Obviously they have known each other for nearly 20 years back in karting. But this is their first time with an IndyCar team as teammates. And our engineering staff has blended together with our two drivers.”
