Sage Karam sticks with Dreyer & Reinbold for Indianapolis 500

Bar a full season with Ganassi in 2015, the 23-year-old's IndyCar career so far has been focused on Indy 500 entries with DRR - starting with a ninth place on his debut five years ago.

The Dennis Reinbold-run squad is among the most highly regarded of the 'one-off' teams that join the field at Indy each May, regularly outqualifying more established teams and and racing in the top half of the 33-car field.

Reinbold said 2013 Indy Lights champion Karam would "be a solid contender" for victory in the team's Chevrolet-powered car.

Karam will get his first run of 2019 on Tuesday May 14 when Indy 500 practice begins.

Dreyer & Reinbold Racing, which first entered the 500 back in 1999, fielded two drivers in the Indy 500 last year, with JR Hildebrand joining Karam.

Other additional entrants for the Indy 500 that have been announced so far include McLaren and Fernando Alonso's return, Pippa Mann with Clauson-Marshall Racing and a third Rahal Letterman Lanigan car for former Ed Carpenter Racing driver Jordan King.

Why IndyCar's generational shift isn't as stark as it appears

OPINION: The rise of two drivers racing only their second full-season IndyCar campaigns to head the points with four races to go has led to some observers doubting the credentials of the old guard. But they haven't faded away, there's merely a deeper talent pool that is helping to make this season one of the best in recent years
