The grid is beginning to take shape for this May 24’s running of the 104th Indianapolis 500.
Some drivers waltz from one position to another, seemingly gaining optimal rides primarily through innate talent. Others have to claw their way up the ladders of open- and closed-wheel competition.
The 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 became even more compelling when Andretti Autosport announced the addition of Conor Daly to its already stellar four-driver lineup.
As a recent racing emigre to the United States some 35 years ago, driver Derek Daly made a remark deprecating himself using what was then common British slang. Thirty-five years later, that comment returned to haunt Daly and his son Conor.
American Conor Daly has shown his talent behind the wheel in a variety of series in the USA and abroad. As the Verizon IndyCar Series prepares for its Grand Prix of Indianapolis, Daly announced a new program that will take him into another racing series for the first time.
