Sage Karam will continue his "Indianapolis-only" calendar for the 2020 NTT INDYCAR SERIES.
Dreyer & Reinbold Racing today announced its entry for the Oct. 2-3 INDYCAR Harvest GP presented by GMR doubleheader weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with new partner, Oil2Soil®, on the No. 24 DRR Chevrolet for Karam.
It marks the third 2020 appearance for the Dreyer & Reinbold Racing team at the legendary “Brickyard” racing facility with its entry at the 2.439-mile, 13-turn road circuit inside the famed 2.5-mile oval. The INDYCAR Harvest GP presented by GMR also will be the third weekend for the NTT INDYCAR SERIES at IMS with a doubleheader road racing event.
“Earlier this year, we announced our team would run more races in 2020,” said team owner Dennis 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 (GMR Grand Prix) 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.”
DRR previously announced its expansion of an Indy 500-only racing program when the team competed at the GMR Grand Prix with the No. 24 DRR WIX Filters Chevrolet and driver Sage Karam. For the past six years, DRR has competed only at the Indianapolis 500. From 2000 to 2013, the Dennis Reinbold-owned organization competed in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES full-time.
“I’m very excited to return for the Harvest GP at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Oil2Soil as a primary partner,” said Sage 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.”
