Two top-10s for Dreyer & Reinbold
When the green flag dropped to start the Iowa Corn Indy 250, there was no holding back for Tomas Scheckter. The IndyCar Series veteran, making his third start for Dreyer & Reinbold Racing, rocketed his No. 23 MonaVie entry past six cars into the top 10.

Scheckter spent most of the 250 laps in the top 10, including three stints running in second. He ended up sixth, his best finish since 2007.

"It was a good race," Scheckter said. "I made up a lot of positions in the beginning, and I just have to thank everybody at MonaVie. The car looks beautiful. Everyone on the team did a great job."

The finish was the best this season for Dreyer & Reinbold Racing, and coupled with Mike Conway's eighth-place finish, gave the team two cars in the top 10 for the first time since the 2008 Indianapolis 500.

"We had good cars all weekend, and it's really too bad that qualifying got rained out or we would have started up further in the cycle," team co-owner Dennis Reinbold said.

Conway, a rookie, earned his first career top-10 in his eighth start.

"It was a tough race," Conway said. "We started from the back with what happened with qualifying. We kept it steady at the start, but even when you are trying to stay out of trouble and everything is happening around you, it makes it difficult. At the restart, we just tried to gain positions, but it was hard with the bumps through (Turns) 1 and 2, because your car can get really loose, so we were just trying to hang on."

The team will look to continue its success June 27 at Richmond where it finished eighth last year. "We go to Richmond next weekend, and our setups are good on short tracks, so I'm looking forward to it," Reinbold said.
