Dreyer and Reinbold Racing’s Sage Karam in the No.24 Wix Filters Chevrolet is looking forward to returning to a road course setting following two oval iRacing events. Karam who has a vast amount of experience in sim racing.
Karam who took victory in the season opening American Red Cross Grand Prix of Watkins Glen commented about Saturday’s race saying:
I am ready to get back on the road circuits again. Obviously, we were strong in the first two races at Watkins Glen and Barber. We didn’t have much luck at Barber after leading a bunch of laps, but I think we’ll have a strong effort at COTA. It’s a great road course and should be another exciting race for the fans. We were fast at Michigan, but we got caught up in some traffic. I made a mistake in qualifying at Motegi, and I had to start 31st. But the car improved in the race and we moved up 24 spots to seventh. We also had the fastest race lap. Now, we need to get back to racing up front at COTA. My iRacing experience goes back to 2007 when I went from karting to open-wheelers. Because I have not been a regular on the INDYCAR circuit in recent years, I’m able to stay active through sim racing, and I believe it has helped me. I think some of the current INDYCAR drivers can see improvement, too, in the INDYCAR Challenge racing as we all stay inside due to the coronavirus. I’m like everyone else who wants to go real racing as soon as we can. But this is the next best thing.”
