INDIANAPOLIS – Conor Daly, a top-10 finisher in the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500, has filed his entry to compete in a NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget during the Sept. 4-5 Driven2SaveLives BC39 powered by NOS Energy Drink.
The 27-year-old Noblesville, Ind. native will take the wheel of the Petry Motorsports No. 35 for the second running of the event at The Dirt Track at IMS.
Daly’s ride, sponsored by Jonathan Byrd’s Racing, FK Rod Ends and Keizer Wheels, will be part of a four-car stable for the Petry team, racing alongside USAC standouts Kevin Thomas Jr., Dave Darland and Jerry Coons Jr.
Daly is a veteran of 48 career NTT IndyCar Series starts, including six Indianapolis 500 appearances, starting 11th and finishing 10th in May. Last weekend, he recorded a season-best finish of sixth in the Indy car event at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway.
Daly has made two previous USAC midget appearances, both in 2018. His first race came in the inaugural BC39 for Landon Simon Racing, while his most recent came in the finale indoors at the Southern Illinois Center in DuQuoin, Ill., for owner Jody Rosenboom.
