NHRA: Kalitta Motorsports leads all teams in combined Top Fuel/Funny Car wins in 2018

To say that the boss man, legendary driver and team owner Connie Kalitta, is happy at how his four-car operation has started this season is an understatement.

Dreyer & Reinbold Racing to announce second Indy 500 entry/driver Thursday

After fielding single-car entries for the last six editions of the Indianapolis 500, Dreyer and Reinbold Racing will announce Thursday that it will field a second car in this year’s Greatest Spectacle In Racing.

2013 Indy Lights champ Sage Karam has already been announced to drive DRR’s first entry, the No. 24 WIX Filters Chevrolet. It will mark the fourth time Karam has driven for DRR, with finishes of ninth in 2014, 32nd in 2016 and 28th in 2017.

One name that has been frequently mentioned in the rumor mill to fill the seat of the second DRR entry is 2009 Indy Lights champion J.R. Hildebrand. Two-time Indy 500 winner Juan Pablo Montoya, who does not have a ride for this year’s race, is also available, among others.

The announcement will be made during a media teleconference at 2:30 p.m. ET. Team co-owner Dennis Reinbold and the second driver will be on the call.

Dreyer & Reinbold Racing is expected to use this year’s 500 as a stepping-off point to return to the IndyCar Series with at least one full-time entry next season.
