Conor Daly Returning to Carlin in 2020

IndyCar Series veteran Conor Daly will return to Carlin in 2020, the team announced in a tweet Tuesday, March 10.

The Indiana native is scheduled for all oval races except the Indianapolis 500 in the team’s No. 59 Chevrolet.

Teammate Max Chilton will pilot the car in events at road and street courses, as well as in the 500.

Daly scored finishes of 13th or better in all four starts with Carlin in 2019, his best result a sixth at Gateway.

“It’s been a tough couple years having to watch a lot of racing from the sidelines,” Daly tweeted. “Means so much to have this chance. Thank you @CarlinRacing.”

Daly’s best career finish in the series came in the first of the two Belle Isle races in 2016, a second-place result that marked his first and only podium to date.
