Harding Racing confirmed this evening that Conor Daly will return to the cock-pit of the No.88 Harding Group Chevrolet for this weekend’s ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway.
Daly who raced for the team in Toronto and at Mid-Ohio last time out is being evaluated by the team as they prepare to expand to a two car full-time operation for the 2019 IndyCar Series season.
Speaking ahead of the race this weekend, Daly commented by saying;
Having the chance to race at Pocono is really exciting for me. “Because it means as a team we’ll have had a chance to race at a road course, street course and superspeedway together. It’ll be a new challenge for us to work through, and I can’t wait for it. Thankfully, after competing at the Indy 500 this year, I have some experience with the superspeedway aero package which gives me some more confidence heading into the weekend. The Chevrolet engine was obviously very strong at Indy, so I look forward to working with them alongside the Harding Racing boys yet again this year.
President of Harding Racing, Brian Barnhart commented by saying:
Harding Racing feels our second half of the season program has generated considerable benefits for us. We’re going to continue that at Pocono Raceway in an effort to make sure that Conor had an opportunity to participate on all the disciplines that are included in the Verizon IndyCar Series.
