Conor Daly will complete Ed Carpenter Racing’s driver line-up for 2020, participating in the road and street course races.
Ed Carpenter Racing have announced that Conor Daly will join the team for 2020, completing a three man squad to participate next season. Daly will team up with Ed Carpenter and Rinus Veekay, and will take part in the road and street courses. Carpenter himself will drive the oval rounds, while Veekay will participate in all the races.
Daly, the 27 year old son of former F1 racer Derek Daly, arrives with backing from the United States Air Force.
“As an Indiana kid, it just feels right to be getting a chance with Ed Carpenter Racing,”said Daly of his signing. “This team has done such an incredible job over the years and I have a tremendous amount of respect for Ed and this group. I look forward to entering a season feeling fully prepared with simulator time and testing for the first time in several years.”
Daly has been a ‘super-sub’ for the last two seasons, having last raced full-time in IndyCar back in 2017. In the past two seasons, five different teams have called upon Daly for 11 different race weekends. These include Andretti, Carlin and Schmidt Peterson. His best result in 2019 was a P6 finish at Gateway while driving for Carlin.
Daly will now race a U.S. Air Force Chevrolet in 13 of 17 IndyCar races in 2020.
Carpenter is thrilled with the new additions to his team’s 2020 program. “I am extremely proud and excited to welcome Conor Daly to Ed Carpenter Racing! I have seen Conor grow and mature over the course of his career and am confident that his best years are yet to come.”
