AJ Foyt Racing’s Conor Daly and Carlos Munoz are hoping that their strong test performance at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on Thursday translates to a strong end to what has been a tough Verizon IndyCar Series season.
Foyt made wholesale changes ahead of the 2017 season with Conor Daly and Carlos Munoz joining the outfit to replace Takuma Sato and Jack Hawksworth.
Daly returned to AJ Foyt Racing from Dale Coyne Racing having made his Verizon IndyCar Series debut with Foyt at the 2013 Indianapolis 500. Munoz and Sato effectively swapped seats.
The other big change for Foyt was the fact that they moved from Honda power to Chevrolet, the transition has been extremely tough with Conor Daly currently in 19th place on 179 points in the series standings while Carlos Munoz is currently in 16th place on 224 points.
AJ Foyt Racing’s best result so far this season came at the Kohler Grand Prix at the Road America circuit where Carlos Munoz finished the race just outside the top ten in 11th place.
Daly believes that the test at Mid-Ohio will not only help his Chevrolet powered team at the Honda 200 next weekend but also at the remaining road courses this season at Watkins Glen and the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma.
