Loudon, NH (August 13, 2011) - Dreyer & Reinbold Racing qualified for the MoveThatBlock.com Indy 225 in Loudon, New Hampshire today. The team's drivers Tomas Scheckter (No. 22 MoveThatBlock.com) and Ana Beatriz (No. 24 Ipiranga) qualified 18th and 21st respectively.

Tomas Scheckter is substituting for Wilson this weekend. The South African was the sensible choice for Dreyer & Reinbold Racing as he has a lot of experience on ovals and with DRR as well. Scheckter came on board with DRR in 2009 competing at ten races for the team. He earned three top-ten finishes (6th- Iowa, 8th - Chicago, 9th- Miami). He ran with DRR last year for four events, including the Indianapolis 500.

Scheckter will be making his first appearance at New Hampshire Motor Speedway as he qualified 18th for tomorrow's race. He recorded a two lap qualifying speed of 166.381 mph.

This weekend marked the first time that Ana Beatriz turned laps at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The Brazilian will start 21st tomorrow after recording a two-lap average qualifying speed of 164.958 mph.

Beatriz, secured her best IZOD IndyCar career qualifying result in Milwaukee with an 11th place starting spot. Three weeks ago, she earned her best qualifying result on a road course, with a 23rd place starting position, and her second best career finish in the IZOD IndyCar Series in Edmonton finishing 13th. Bia earned her best IZOD IndyCar result in Toronto, Canada when she brought the car home in 11th place.

Dreyer & Reinbold Racing will be on track for the MoveThatBlock.com Indy 225 in Loudon, New Hampshire tomorrow. The race telecast will air live on Sunday, August 14th at 3:30 pm (ET) on ABC. For more updates on the team, please visit www.dreyerreinboldracing.com.

What they have to say about the MoveThatBlock.com Indy 225:

Tomas Scheckter, No. 22 MoveThatBlock.Com:"We got pretty lost after that second practice session today, but we found our way again. We made a lot of changes to the car and I'm happy with what we ended up with. Also, we went out in the beginning when the track was not as good. I just have to thank the team. It was a good job. We qualified where we qualified and I think it was up to track conditions and I look forward to a good racecar tomorrow."

Ana Beatriz, No. 24 Ipiranga:"The car in qualifying was the best that we've had all weekend. It's a shame that we couldn't have that feeling earlier so that I had more confidence to attack more in qualifying. I think that's maybe why the difference from my first lap to my second was so big. My second lap was competitive. We'll see. I'm confident now that I had a good car in qualifying. We need to keep working hard and have a great race tomorrow."
