INDIANAPOLIS – For the third time in his career, Conor Daly will run the full NTT IndyCar Series schedule, thanks a renewed relationship with Carlin.

Carlin announced Tuesday that Daly, who drove in four races for the team last year, will be back with the team this year to compete during all oval events except the Indianapolis 500 in the No. 59.

Max Chilton will drive for the team on the road and street courses in the No. 59.

Daly previously announced he would be joining Ed Carpenter Racing this year to compete in all road and street course events, plus the Indianapolis 500. The deal to drive for Carlin means Daly will be able to contest the full NTT IndyCar Series schedule between the two teams.

Daly previously ran the full NTT IndyCar Series schedule in 2016 for Dale Coyne and 2017 for A.J. Foyt. He has a career-best finish of second, which came in 2016 during the first race of the Chevrolet Indy Dual in Detroit.

Last year Daly drove for three different teams in the NTT IndyCar Series – Andretti Autosport, Carlin and Schmidt Peterson Motorsports – scoring a best finish of sixth for Carlin at Gateway Motorsports Park.
