CARMEL, Ind. (April 16, 2015) – Dennis Reinbold announced today that his Dreyer & Reinbold Racing operation will enter two cars in the 2015 Red Bull Global Rallycross Lites division with young driver Alex Keyes competing in one of the 310-horsepower Global Rallycross Lites cars.

Reinbold’s DRR organization has been a successful team in the Verizon IndyCar Series since 2000 and will now continue to grow within Global Rallycross competition with two entries in the Lites class this year. The Ford Fiesta ST machines from Olsbergs are all-wheel drive with six-speed sequential transmissions.

The driver of the second DRR GRC Lites car will be named in the near future.

In addition, former Indy 500 champion Buddy Rice will serve as a driver consultant for DRR’s new GRC Lites program.

“We are very happy to continue growing our team, especially within Red Bull Global Rallycross with the addition of our two Lites entries this year,” said Reinbold, whose family’s racing legacy goes back to the 1920s with his famed grandfather, Floyd “Pop” Dreyer at the Indianapolis 500. “We are pleased to bring an up and coming racer like Alex Keyes into our new program. Alex has been a champion in other forms of racing and he has a very bright future.

“We view our participation in GRC Lites as an investment in growing our organization and believe the Lites piece of our team is critical and an important part to identify and develop talented personnel as well as positively contribute to our other motorsports programs.”

Keyes, 17, spent six very successful years in the karting world developing his skills before moving into formula cars in 2013 where he was chosen as a Lynx Racing Academy driver and competed in the Pacific F1600 series. In 2014, he moved up to the West Coast Formula Pro Mazda class and captured the title with ten wins and 13 pole positions. He also competed in the Pro Mazda Championship presented by Cooper Tires event last year at Sonoma Raceway and earned the Hard Charger Award in his first professional race.

“I’m really excited to work with a professional team like Dreyer & Reinbold Racing,” said Keyes. “And I feel really lucky to get to learn from Buddy Rice who is a great driver and a fellow Lynx alumni. I plan to do everything I can to be competitive in the GRC Lites class and develop my skills both on and off the track. I can’t wait for the season to start.”

Reinbold also mentioned that his new GRC Lites contingent will use many of his personnel from his IndyCar team as well as the engineering staff.

The opening race for the Red Bull Global Rallycross Lites division is schedule for Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., on May 31.
