Conor Daly in the No.59 Gallagher Chevrolet had a great final race of the 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season for Carlin Racing at World Wide Technology Raceway in race two of the Bommarito Automotive Group 500.
Daly came from 15th on the grid to finish the race in eighth place. Speaking following the action Daly said:
It was a pretty good day for us today starting 15th. There was a lot of chaos at the front with the oil dry on the track, so that was hectic. We lost a little bit because we got stuck on the inside at the beginning, but we gained a lot coming back on the outside in Turns 3 and 4 on the first lap. The No. 59 Gallagher Carlin Chevrolet was just fantastic. We worked our way forward every stop, and the guys did a great job in the pits. We were just so fast. We got all the way up behind (Scott) Dixon, but just at the end we had a big moment of understeer on the last stint, which put us back one position. To start the race in 15th and finish eighth here today and to have four of the five races together with Carlin all with top-10 finishes is just really awesome. I’m just happy and thankful to be here and to have had the opportunity to be competitive with this team and get so close to a podium so many times
Daly will now complete the 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season with Ed Carpenter Racing back in the No.20 U.S Air Force Chevrolet.
