By  | 

Just over a month and a half away from the Indianapolis 500, and ride confirmations are still coming in. JR Hildebrand announced on Thursday that he will race for the Greatest Spectacle in Racing for Dreyer & Reinbold Racing.

“There have been a bunch of different times where Dennis and I have been talking about doing this in the past. I’m just really excited to be back,” Hildebrand said. “I mean, obviously like you mentioned, my first call to the big leagues was from Dennis. We’ve obviously been in the same Chevy camp over the last few years out at Indy. We were always really impressed with the speed, just performance of the guys at Dreyer.

“When I started working on getting this year figured out, it was an obvious phone call to make from my side. Yeah, I’m excited we were able to get it all put together.”

The 30-year-old will be behind the wheel of the No. 66 Chevrolet with sponsorship from global customer relationship management giant Salesforce. The American has made 62 Verizon IndyCar Series starts since starting his career with the team in 2010.
