Panther, Dreyer & Reinbold teams to merge?

Servia happy to get Chevy power

The Izod IndyCar Series will soon see a pair of teams working together like never before.

A unification of Dreyer & Reinbold Racing and Panther Racing for the upcoming Indianapolis 500 should at least make Dreyer & Reinbold’s transition to the Chevrolet program smoother.

Panther is only four races into this era of Chevrolet, but it worked with the engine-badging company in the past. Dreyer & Reinbold has been with Lotus most recently, confirming the switch in powerplants just about a week ago. Its driver, Oriol Servia, used a Lotus during last week’s race in Sao Paulo, Brazil, finishing 11th.

Confirmation of the pairing has not been announced and apparently can’t be announced until Monday at the earliest due to a variety of factors. But in a sense, Servia and Panther’s JR Hildebrand will be working together, especially as the crews do so in Panther’s Southwest side shop. Indy Star
