Scheckter In At DRR

IZOD IndyCar Series vet Tomas Scheckter has signed on to pilot the #24 Mona Vie car for Dreyer and Reinbold Racing in the upcoming Honda Indy Toronto.  The 29-year-old Scheckter is replacing the injured Mike Conway for the 2nd time since his horrific incident at Indianapolis in May.  Tomas ran the #24 Dallara at Texas before being replaced by Graham Rahal at Iowa and Paul Tracy at Watkins Glen.

No word on who will run the 2nd car as a teammate to Justin Wilson in Edmonton and beyond.

"I am really happy to be in a DRR car again. I know the task ahead at Toronto will be challenging and for the most part, it will be good to learn from Justin and his experience on street courses. I look forward to the challenge and feel at home at DRR for this event given our good race pace last year. I have to thank not only Dennis, Robbie and Larry Curry, but MonaVie and their support for allowing me to be back in the race car where I feel most at home," - Tomas Scheckter
