Day for the Indianapolis 500 was an awesome and rewarding one for Dreyer and Reinbold Racing. This day is often called the first of two races for the month of May, and I think we did very well for the first "race". I qualified the No. 23 Team Allegra/ Dreyer and Reinbold/Infiniti/Firestone car in ninth place -- with a four-lap average of 229.439 -- and my teammate Robbie Buhl is in second position on the front row, with a four-lap average of 231.033 mph in the No. 24 Team Purex/Dreyer and Reinbold/Infiniti/Firestone car.
Car: No. 23 Team: Allegra/Dreyer and Reinbold Hometown: Commercial Point, Ohio IRL starts: 23 Best finish: 2nd (Homestead, 4/8/01)
Next up for us this week is preparing for the race -- the second "race" of May, and the most important one. Winning the 500 would definitely change my life for the better! I am not sure that it would take the women questions away; in fact it would probably increase the amount of questions surrounding the issue. I'd just like to help keep the momentum that we have built up since the Nazareth race for Team Dreyer and Reinbold Racing rolling as we get ready for the greatest race in the world.
