Running deep into negotiations with several teams over the off-season, 20-year major open-wheel veteran Paul Tracy has signed with Dreyer and Reinbold Racing to compete in the 2011 Indianapolis 500.
"Obviously it feels great to be back with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing," said Tracy. "It's been a chaotic winter, but it's good to have the deal stowed away with a competitive program lined up with WIX Filters and DRR for the Indianapolis 500."
Running in his 4th race with DRR, Tracy will pilot the WIX Filters entry alongside teammates Justin Wilson and Ana Beatriz.
"Dreyer & Reinbold Racing is extremely happy to welcome WIX Filters to the team for the Indianapolis 500 and for the 2011 season," said team co-owner Robbie Buhl. "We are also very excited to have Paul drive the WIX Filters car. He's a great personality and driver and we believe he will be very competitive during the Indy 500," commented Dreyer & Reinbold Racing Co-Owner, Robbie Buhl.
WIX Filters will also serve as an associate sponsor for Justin Wilson in 2011.
