Entry List | IMS Tickets | Brickyard Authentics

Dreyer & Reinbold Racing announced April 23 that Tomas Scheckter will drive the team's No. 23 car as a third entry in the 2010 Indianapolis 500.

Scheckter, from Cape Town, South Africa, raced for DRR in 2009, competing in 10 IZOD IndyCar Series races for the team. He earned three top-10 finishes.

2002 Indianapolis 500 Chase co-Rookie of the Year Scheckter will attempt to make his ninth start in "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing." His best start is 10th, in 2002, 2004 and 2007. His best finish was fourth in 2003. Scheckter started 26th and climbed to finish 12th for DRR last year at Indy, completing all 200 laps.

"I'm really happy to be back with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing and to be working with (race strategist) Larry Curry again," Scheckter said. "I feel at home. We had a great Indy test at the end of last year, and I feel that the momentum that the team has built on the road/street courses with Mike (Conway) and Justin (Wilson), we can carry that on to the ovals.

"Also, having Justin as my teammate last year at Indy, we worked very well together. (Team owners) Dennis (Reinbold) and Robbie (Buhl) have been very supportive of getting this done and feel like we have a chance to do great things this year at the Speedway."

Scheckter ranks fifth among active drivers in most laps led at Indy with 148.

"We are excited to have Tomas join our team for the Indy 500," said Dennis Reinbold, Dreyer & Reinbold Racing co-owner. "He did a great job for us last year, and we are extremely happy that we were able to work something out with him for this event."

Dreyer & Reinbold Racing will make the sponsor announcement for the No. 23 car Tuesday, April 27.

There are now 35 drivers assigned to the 40 entries for the 2010 Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 30.
