Dreyer & Reinbold again inks Sage Karam for one-off Indianapolis 500 bid

Share Facebook Tweet Pinterest Email Sage Karam has reunited with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing for another run at the Indianapolis 500. This is the third time in four years that the 21-year-old American will team up for the Greatest Spectacle in Racing. The squad will enter Karam in the No. 24. As a 19-year-old rookie in 2014, Karam drove from 31st to finish ninth. Last year, he went from 23rd to fourth before a crash ended his run at racing immortality. His raw talent is what continually attracts him to team owner Dennis Reinbold. "We are very pleased to have Sage back with our Dreyer & Reinbold Racing team for the 2017 Indy 500," Reinbold said. "We have had two sensational showings at the 500 with Sage, in 2014 and 2016. His impressive runs give the team great confidence in returning to the 500 this year. Sage has worked well with the engineering staff and the crew, and his approach to Speedway setups have been outstanding, as his speed has shown." In addition to his two Indy 500 appearances with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing, Karam drove in 12 Verizon IndyCar Series races for Chip Ganassi Racing in 2015, including a 32nd-place finish in that year’s Indy 500. "I’m really excited to be back with Dennis and the Dreyer & Reinbold Racing team for the Indianapolis 500 this May," Karam said. "Trying to win the 500 as a one-off team is certainly a big challenge, but I’m confident in this team and their ability to field a race car that can win this race. I'll be working with the same engineers and the same pit crew from the last two races at Indy with DRR, and I trust that we can build upon that continuity and ride that momentum to the double checkers and into victory lane."
