INDIANAPOLIS – Dreyer & Reinbold Racing announced Tuesday that it will compete in the NTT IndyCar Series Harvest Grand Prix doubleheader on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course on Oct. 2-3.
Sage Karam will return to the team to drive the No. 24 Chevrolet, which will have sponsorship from Oil2Soil.
It marks the third appearance of the year for the Dreyer & Reinbold Racing team at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
DRR previously announced its expansion of an Indianapolis 500-only racing program when the team competed at the IndyCar Grand Prix earlier on July 4 at IMS. For the past six years, DRR has competed only during the Indianapolis 500. From 2000 to 2013, the Dennis Reinbold-owned organization competed in the NTT IndyCar Series full-time.
Oil2Soil is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly absorbent for oil and lubricant cleanup, offering numerous loose fill and spill kit products.
Karam competed at the IndyCar Grand Prix on July 4 and DRR campaigned two cars with Karam and J.R. Hildebrand in the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500 on Aug. 23.
“Earlier this year, we announced our team would run more races in 2020,” said Reinbold. “We were at St. Petersburg ready for that event when the COVID-19 closed that weekend for the race. We then came back at the IndyCar GP for our first road race in seven years. I think we learned a lot about the road course car and looked to run another race. So, the Harvest GP doubleheader fit in well for our operation and we’re excited to introduce Oil2Soil to IndyCar racing. Sage also improved throughout the July 4 weekend and we believe he will have strong runs at the Harvest GP. We look forward to the two-race weekend at IMS.”
Karam is anxious for his return to the IMS road circuit after the July 4 event.
“I’m very excited to return for the Harvest GP at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Oil2Soil as a primary partner,” said Karam, the 2013 Indy Lights champion. “The DRR team did a great job preparing for its first road race in seven years and we improved each session we had at the July 4 IndyCar GP. We had bad luck in the race, but I think we showed that we gained speed with the No. 24 DRR Chevy. Our goal is to qualifying better from the July race. It was a physical race in July with the new aeroscreen and the hot temperatures. It will be cooler in October. I can’t wait to hit the IMS road course again.”
