Conor Daly to compete in upcoming Xfinity Indianapolis race

Conor Daly announced Wednesday on his “Speed ​​Street” podcast that he will race in the Xfinity Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway next Saturday for Sam Hunt Racing.

Daly, 32, has competed in two Xfinity Series races during his career, most recently last fall at the Charlotte ROVAL. Daly also has three starts in the Cup Series and the CRAFTSMAN Truck Series. He has spent the majority of his racing career in the IndyCar Series, driving full-time for Ed Carpenter Racing in 2022-23. In 109 IndyCar starts over 11 years, Daly has one podium and one pole position.

In addition to his upcoming Xfinity Series race, Daly announced Tuesday that he has signed a multi-race program with Niece Motorsports to compete in the Truck Series. Daly will pilot the No. 44 Chevrolet Silverado in three races this season, starting with next Friday’s TSport 200 at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park. Daly will then race at Kansas in September and Homestead-Miami in October.

Conor Daly Ready for Xfinity, Truck Series

“I couldn’t be more excited to be back in the truck with Niece Motorsports,” Daly said in a team release. “Al Niece and Cody Efaw have always been great to me and supportive of my Indy 500 efforts over the years since we met. We’ve been working on building a program for some time and I’m glad we were finally able to iron out the details to race together again.”

Daly’s three previous Truck Series starts have all come with Niece Motorsports. He finished 18th at Mid-Ohio last season, a career-best, and at Las Vegas in 2020.

“Conor has been a blast to work with every time he’s gotten in one of our trucks,” said Cody Efaw, CEO of Niece Motorsports. “It’s been cool to see his interest in NASCAR grow since he first started with our team in Las Vegas a few years ago. Now that we have him locked in for multiple races this year, I think it’ll give him a chance to go out there and learn every week to get better for his upcoming starts.”
