Beatriz Is Fifth Woman In 2010 Indianapolis 500 Field

http://www.indianapolismotorspeedway.com/indy500/news/show/37305-beatriz-is-fifth-woman-in-2010-indianapolis-500-field/


Dreyer & Reinbold Racing has named rookie Ana Beatriz as the driver of its fourth entry for the 2010 Indianapolis 500, as she could be one of a record five women to make the field for The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.

Beatriz, from Sao Paulo, Brazil, will drive the No. 25 Dreyer & Reinbold entry starting on Indianapolis Star Opening Day, Saturday, May 15 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Race Day is Sunday, May 30.

Its the teams fourth entry as Beatriz will join regular drivers Justin Wilson and Mike Conway plus former 500 Mile Race Chase co-Rookie of the Year Tomas Scheckter.

We are excited about having Ana back with the team, team co-owner Dennis Reinbold said. She did a great job for us in Brazil, and its good to have her in our fourth entry. Ana really showed us her talent when we ran her back in March. We look forward to running her as she attempts to make her Indianapolis 500 debut.

Beatriz will be the fifth female the most in race history attempting to qualify May 22-23 for the 33 starting positions, joining regular IZOD IndyCar Series drivers Simona De Silvestro, Milka Duno, Sarah Fisher and Danica Patrick.

Beatriz, a two-time race winner in Firestone Indy Lights, has competed the past two years in the Firestone Freedom 100 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with a best finish of fifth in 2008 in a Sam Schmidt Motorsports car. That season, she finished third in the series standings.

She made her IZOD IndyCar Series debut in the Sao Paulo Indy 300 in March with a solid 13th place, advancing nine positions from the start.

Im very excited to be back in an IZOD IndyCar with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing and to be competing in the biggest open-wheel event in the world, the Indianapolis 500, said Beatriz, who will have primary sponsorship from Ipiranga, FlowGuardGold and Monange. It will be a dream come true to have my debut in the Indy 500 in the Centennial Era, and I hope to have a smooth and very competitive month of May. Hopefully my experience in Indy Lights can help me at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Beatriz will join fellow Indianapolis 500 Chase Rookie of the Year candidates Bertrand Baguette and Mario Romancini (Conquest Racing), Takuma Sato (KV Racing Technology), Jay Howard (Sarah Fisher Racing), Sebastian Saavedra (Bryan Herta Autosport) and De Silvestro (Team Stargate Worlds/HVM Racing) this month.

I will miss everything leading up to the 500. No TV. Will be back home in time for the race itself.

I really want Sarah to do well. As long as she beats a certain Patrick. :P

Now that George is out of the picture, I think I'll enjoy the IRL a lot more. :D

If she (Patrick) wins they will make it out to be bigger then if Fisher or one of the other women wins.

Congrats to Ganassi.

I wish they would be more consistent (and fair) about the blocking rule. I thought there were some bad calls today. I remember at least 2 races where Patrick was down laps and obviously blocking and never got penalized. It's almost like it depends on who the driver is and who they are blocking. Glad Andretti said something about it.

I also hate how two people passed Marco after the yellow flag.
