Her team, Dreyer & Reinbold Racing, looks forward to 2009 when it will begin its 10th season of full-time competition in the IndyCar Series and lead-off the year with its 200th IndyCar Series start. The team, based in Carmel, Indiana, was formed in 1998 with Indianapolis businessman Dennis Reinbold and partner Eric De Bord.
Driver Robbie Buhl became a part of the ownership group in 2000 when the team made its full-time debut in the IndyCar Series. Their first race in this arrangement saw the team win at the Walt Disney World Speedway. Among driver alumni for the team include co-owner Buhl and previous Indianapolis 500 Champions Al Unser Jr. and Buddy Lazier. No other team has the historical ties to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as Dreyer & Reinbold. Team co-owner Dennis Reinbold’s grandfather “Pop” Dreyer built leading roadsters that raced at IMS during the 30s, 40s, and 50s.
