Bio

It is no surprise that Indycar driver, Conor Daly, has found success in the world of racing. Conor’s Dad, Derek Daly, is an esteemed Indycar driver himself, so naturally his son started racing at an early age. Daly started out driving go-karts, which cultivated his respect and interest for the racing world. In 2005, Daly found success in the world of go-karting, as he won 19 races, two championships, and was labeled as “Junior Driver of the Year” by Kart Racers of America.
