“Conor Daly is one of the exciting up-and-coming drivers in open wheel racing today,” Foyt said. “I had spoken to Conor at the F-1 race in Austin and I was impressed. I thought this test was a perfect opportunity to see how he works with our team.”
“I am honored to have the opportunity to drive an Indycar for the first time with AJ Foyt Racing,” Daly said. “I’ve grown up at the Indy 500 and have always dreamed of getting in an IndyCar someday. I will do the best job I can to get to know the team and complete all the things they’ve got planned for the test. I can’t thank Larry enough for organizing this and taking an interest in my future.”
Daly tweeted Monday that he wanted to take the Indianapolis 500 seat Roger Penske offered to Tony Stewart should Stewart not accept the ride.
