Conor Daly says that Worldwide Technology Raceway which hosts this weekend’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500 is one of his favourite circuits in the NTT IndyCar Series. Daly will drive the No.59 Gallagher Chevrolet this weekend and speaking to Paddock Eye during a Zoom conference call on Wednesday he said:

Yeah, I thought I was the one with the bad Internet there. Poor Alex, I thought he was rich.

I mean, I’m not really sure what to expect. I think we as a team, we’re a little bit upset with how Texas went together because we were obviously quick there the year before, but things changed a lot with the tire, the surface and stuff like that.

Yeah, we’re hoping we don’t really see — we hope it’s a little bit consistent, sort of similar to last year. I know there was a test, but realistically there shouldn’t be many changes that we need to account for.

Having said that, I’m sure something will be really random and something wild will happen, but it should be fairly straightforward. 90 minutes to sort it out. If you can’t sort it out, it’s going to be a rough afternoon.

One of my favorite tracks, without a doubt. I love it. I love driving an INDYCAR there. I’m even spotting for the truck race on Friday night as well, for Ryan Truex. The Niece Motorsports guys called me up to spot for Ryan. I’m all in in Gateway. Get me there and I’ll work.

The team manager for Niece Motorsports asked if I could spot him Friday night. I said why not. I’m going to be there getting ready with the team at Carlin. The race isn’t too late, why not? I’ve spotted for Colton Herta before oddly enough in his very first INDYCAR race.

Yeah, I mean, why not? I like being out there, I like being at the track. Hopefully that goes well.
