Hamilton lands ride for 500 Kingdom Racing Team Principal George Del Canto announced today that we have joined forces with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing and Hewlett Packard to run the number 44 Honda Dallara for IndyCar veteran Davey Hamilton at this year's 93rd running of the Indianapolis 500.
Following the formal announcement today at the Long Beach Grand Prix, George Del Canto said "Kingdom Racing is about winning for God's glory. In partnering with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing, Davey Hamilton and Hewlett Packard for this year's Indianapolis 500, we will have a worthy platform to further our mission."
Kingdom Racing's mission is to deliver God's word through Motorsports. With a primary goal to form a full time IndyCar Series team and, combined with the help of national Christian ministries, reach 1,000,000, men for Jesus Christ. In 2008, Kingdom Racing made history as the first "faith-based" organization to ever compete in the first 100 years of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Through our second Indy 500 appearance this year, the team hopes to capture national attention with potential partners to execute this mission.
Earlier this year, Kingdom Racing and Davey Hamilton formed an Indy Lights team designed to enhance the careers of young, up-and-coming drivers in various facets of open wheel racing and the first driver signed was Lafayette, IN short track racer, Brandon Wagner who will make his first appearance in the Freedom 100 on Friday of the Indy 500 race weekend.
Partnering with Hamilton for a third year is Hewlett Packard. HP is a technology company that operates in more than 170 countries around the world offering consumers a wide range of products and services from digital photography to digital entertainment and from computing to home printing. "I'm very grateful that Hewlett Packard is returning for their third year with me and my association with Kingdom Racing, now in its second year, really opens up a long term opportunity for new sponsor relationships while giving me a ton of confidence in knowing what we have combined with the guys at Dreyer & Reinbold Racing," said the 46 year old who will pilot the Hewlett Packard livery "Touch the Future Now" during the month of May.
Along with Davey Hamilton, Dreyer & Reinbold Racing will field two other entries in the Indianapolis 500 this year with Mike Conway and John Andretti (Window World/Richard Petty).
"We are excited to be partnering with Davey Hamilton, Kingdom Racing and Hewlett Packard on this program for the month of May as this is just another example of how Dreyer and Reinbold Racing continues to grow," said co-owner Dennis Reinbold.
