January 30, 2001 – Indianapolis, Indiana – Dreyer & Reinbold Racing, one of the top teams in the chase for the Indy Racing Northern Light Racing Series Championship, has announced a technical alliance and sponsorship agreement with Computer Aided Technology (CATI), one of the country’s leading value-added providers of software and training solutions to the engineering, manufacturing, and education industries.
In the alliance, Dreyer and Reinbold Racing’s technical staff and engineers will utilize CATI’s “best-in-class” products, implementation assistance, and ongoing training and technical support in the team’s design and production of contemporary, state-of-the-art race components. Dreyer & Reinbold has already initiated its use of SOLIDWORKS software, the leading mainstream 3D CAD solution.
For Dreyer and Reinbold Racing, the relationship seems to be a natural one for both companies. “We truly believe that SOLIDWORKS software and the uncompromised technical support and experience of CATI specialists will greatly assist us in our mission to win the 2001 Indy Racing Northern Light Racing Championship,” stated Dennis Reinbold of Dreyer and Reinbold Racing. “We also believe that CATI, a company with a steep growth curve, will benefit from its experience and exposure at the Indy Racing League and Indy Racing Northern Light Series.”
“We have been impressed with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing’s desire and commitment to advance the design and production of its race components, and we feel our products and staff can contribute to the team’s performance and ultimate success,” stated Richard Werneth, Vice President of Sales for CATI. “We are delighted to partner with one of the Indy Racing League’s leading teams and are looking forward to contributing to the momentum of the Indy Racing Northern Light Series.”
Team Purex/Dreyer & Reinbold Racing finished 8th in the 2000 IRNLS standings and the team’s entry, driven by Robbie Buhl, raced to a win in the season-opening event at Walt Disney World Speedway.
