DRR confirm 2018 Indy 500 entry with Karam

Dreyer & Reinbold Racing (DRR) will field a single car entry for Sage Karam at the 2018 Indianapolis 500.

Karam – who has dovetailed his racing commitments with a foray into modelling – will start his fifth Indy 500 this May.

Pairing with DRR for the fourth time, 2013 IndyLights champion Karam will again drive the #24 machine at the famous Brickyard.

After a series of disappointing results at Indianapolis in 2016 (32nd) and 2017 (28th) the team is looking to return to the form that captured a 4th place finish with Oriol Servia in 2012. In total the team has recorded four top-10 finishes at Indy.

The team is expected to stick with Chevrolet engines for their assault on this year’s race but details will be confirmed later this week.

DRR has participated in the Indy 500 since 1999 but the family’s association with the great American race dates back to the 1920s and Floyd “Pop” Dreyer – grandfather of current car owner Dennis Reinhold.

Qualifying for the 102nd running of the Indy 500 starts Saturday, May 19 with the 500-mile race one week later on May 27.
