The Poms Unite

Dreyer and Reinbold Racing has announced that Justin Wilson and Mike Conway will be their two-driver team in 2010.  Conway drove (often off the track) for DRR in 2009, while Wilson will always be the answer to the question, "Who was the only non-Penske/Ganassi driver to win in 2009?"

According to the release, Wilson brings his Z-Line Designs sponsorship to DRR, which leaves Dale Coyne Racing without a primary sponsor for the No. 18 machine.

Last year, Tomas Scheckter drove for Coyne at Indianapolis with his Mona Vie sponsorship; I wonder if they might reunite in the No. 18 car, while Coyne looks to fill the No. 19 Boy Scout machine as well (please just give the ride to J.R. Hildebrand).

Given that they have two Englishmen driving, I think we'll refer to Dreyer & Reinbold Racing as "Poms United" for the 2010 season, in tribute to the English Premier League.


  1. Maybe they can add Wheldon next year for a Pom "supah" team.

  2. If that happens, IMS will begin selling warm beer and we're all in big trouble.

  3. I particuarly liked DRR's new PR photo of the two. The 7'8" Wilson will carry Conway around the paddock like a bottle of Pepsi. Oh it's delightful:
