IndyCar veteran Conor Daly not giving up in quest for full-time ride


After two full seasons in the Verizon IndyCar Series, Conor Daly is once again looking for a full-time ride.

Daly, 26, lost his ride with car owner A.J. Foyt after Foyt announced in October that he would not be renewing the contracts of the son of former Formula 1 driver Derek Daly and his 2017 teammate Carlos Munoz. Munoz has since signed a one-race deal to run the Indianapolis 500 with Andretti Autosport.

Daly’s options appear to be limited. One possibility is a return to Dale Coyne Racing, where Daly raced in 2016. Another possibility is a role as the street- and road-course driver for of the Ed Carpenter Racing.

Daly would also be a candidate for a one-off effort for a team wishing to add a car for the Indianapolis 500.

“I’m not going to lie, it is tough,” Daly told for a published report on the Verizon IndyCar Series website. “But I want to see this through — I never want to give up on what I am doing. After the last two years, I’m extremely hungry for the right situation. I just have to continue to push hard and control my own destiny.”
