About Panther DRR
The 2013 season will mark the 14th year of full-time competition for Panther DRR (previously Dreyer & Reinbold Racing), making it one of the longest tenured teams in INDYCAR. Current co-owners Dennis Reinbold and Robbie Buhl won the first race they competed in at the Walt Disney World Speedway in January of 2000 with Buhl behind the wheel. The team now has over 300 race starts in the IZOD IndyCar Series and has successfully qualified 32 cars for the Indianapolis 500. Panther DRR has the most history of any IndyCar team as Reinbold’s grandfather, the legendary “Pop” Dreyer, built leading roadsters that raced at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘50s.
