Karam lands Indianapolis 500 ride with Dreyer & Reinbold
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Sage Karam will drive for Dreyer & Reinbold Racing in the Indianapolis 500.
The 22-year-old Karam will make his fifth straight start in the Indy 500. He finished ninth as a rookie in 2014 but has failed to finish each of the last three races.
Karam has only raced the Indy 500 the last two seasons and has no other IndyCar ride lined up for the rest of this season. Karam will make his fourth Indy start with the Dreyer & Reinbold team.
Karam has been unable to find a steady IndyCar ride despite previously highlighted by the series as one of its future stars. He made the jump last year to sports cars with Lexus in the GTD class of the IMSA sports car championship series.
He signed with the Wilhelmina Models talent agency last year and appeared in the Saks Fifth Avenue fall fashion catalog.
