Daly handed Carlin drive for Texas

Conor Daly will be back in the seat of an IndyCar this weekend at the DXC Technology 600 at the Texas Motor Speedway, racing the No. 59 Carlin car.

Daly made his first start of the season at the Indianapolis 500 just over a week ago, coming home to finish in 10th - by far his strongest result at the Indy 500.

Carlin has employed Daly before, as the American raced in the 2011 GP3 Series with it. Daly's last full-time drive in the IndyCar championship was in 2017, when he drove for A.J. Foyt Enterprises. 

“I want to thank everyone at Carlin and Gallagher for the opportunity to get back in a race car at Texas,” Daly said.

“I thoroughly enjoyed working with Carlin back in 2011 as I started my European racing journey, and to now drive for them in the NTT IndyCar Series is pretty special. I look forward to being able to contribute to the team as best I can.”

Max Chilton will race the No. 59 car at the remaining road and street courses that the IndyCar Series will travel to this year.

“I would like to thank Gallagher for being supportive of my decision to not compete in the remaining oval races this season,” Chilton said.

“I am extremely fortunate to have such a supportive partner. Risk management is a central consideration of both Gallagher and myself in how we operate."
