IndyCar: Daly confirmed for Carlin seat at Gateway

Conor Daly has been confirmed to be driving the #59 Carlin Chevrolet for this weekend’s IndyCar race from World Wide Technology Raceway, commonly known as Gateway.

“[Gateway] is one of my favorite tracks,” said Daly.  “I couldn’t tell you why.  Ever since our very first test day with Foyt, where we were quickest.

“Love the way that track challenges us as drivers and challenges these cars. It will be fun. I’m just happy to be racing, honestly, which is nice.

“I’m not really sure what to expect.  I think we as a team, we’re a little bit upset with how Texas went together because we were obviously quick there the year before, but things changed a lot with the tire, the surface and stuff like that.

“I know there was a test, but realistically there shouldn’t be many changes that we need to account for.  I know we’re going to be strong.

“We didn’t get to test.  I think we’ll just show up and probably try to beat all the rest of the guys.”
