|The Mecum Auction Company is excited to announce that it will join Panther DRR as the team's primary sponsor for the No. 22 Panther DRR machine piloted by Oriol Servia for the 96th Running of the Indianapolis 500. 'The Mecum family has been involved in racing for over 40 years, and the Indy 500 is the pinnacle of racing. So when Panther DRR presented this opportunity to us, it took less than five seconds to get onboard, and I can't wait to put a Mecum 'SOLD' sticker on a bottle of milk this Sunday,' commented President and CEO, Dana Mecum. Panther DRR Co-Owner Robbie Buhl noted, 'We're elated to have Mecum on board for the Indianapolis 500, as well as partner with us for the rest of the 2012 IndyCar season on the No. 22 entry. Dennis Reinbold, our entire team of sponsor partners and I share a deep appreciation and adoration for all cars, so this couldn't be a better fit. Our goal is to help Dana and the entire team at Mecum Auctions put many more 'SOLD' stickers on many more cars in the future.' Servia, who will be piloting the No. 22 Chevy-powered Mecum Auctions machine, will be giving it his all to bring the auction company a victory on Sunday. Last year, the veteran driver started on the front row in third position, led for 18 laps and finished the race in sixth position. This will be the Spaniard's fourth Indianapolis 500 start and he will be fighting for the win from 27th position. Panther DRR will be back on track Friday, May 25th for final practice for the 96th Running of the Indianapolis 500. The race is scheduled for noon (ET) on Sunday, May 27. Live coverage on ABC and the IMS Radio Network will start at 11 a.m. Please visit www.dreyerreinboldracing.com for more updates.
