Scheckter Confirmed For Texas

By: Tony Donohue

Tomas Scheckter has been confirmed to drive at Texas in the #43 Dreyer and Reinbold, Mona Vie sponsored Honda, bumping the car count to 24. This will mark Scheckter's third race of the 2009 Indy Car Series season, he piloted a Dale Coyne car in the Indy 500 to a 12th place finish, and replaced Milka Duno in the #23 last week at Milwaukee finishing 13th.

Tomas scored his 2nd career victory at the Texas Motor Speedway in 2005 while running for Panther Racing. Along with the win, Tomas has also had his fair share of bad luck in Texas. Last year, a run in with Mario Moreas knocked him out while running for Luczo Dragon, and in 2007, he made contact with Marco Andretti while running in the top ten, knocking him out of contention. Tomas will join Rookie Mike Conway and Milka Duno to fill out a three car team for Dreyer and Reinbold Racing. More Details to come.

UPDATE: According to Indycar.com, Tomas will be in the car for 9 races.


sweet I hope he can stay around for more then just Texas I love watching Scheckter. I still have his panther racing number 4 shirt. Matter of fact I am wearing that old bright yellow jersey right now. GO TOMAS

It looks like it will be 9 races... but it hasnt been specified for which 9, I would imagine all the ovals, and maybe 1 or 2 road courses

Boo that's John Andretti's car bad move D&R you lost some respect with me.
