Conor Daly has been striving for an opportunity since May 2013, when the Noblesville, Ind., native made his Verizon IndyCar Series debut for AJ Foyt Racing in the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race.
In a few short days, the former Ontario Formula Ford Championship driver will be driving the No. 43 Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda on the 2.5-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval, the team announced at Barber Motorsports Park.
“I am ecstatic to partner with Schmidt Peterson Motorsport for the 99th Running of the Indianapolis 500," said Daly, 23.
"I have had a great relationship with Sam Schmidt since driving for him in Indy Lights and I’ve always wanted a shot with his Verizon IndyCar Series team. It’s an honor to make my second attempt at running the Indy 500.
Full-season drivers James Hinchcliffe and James Jakes will be Daly's teammates.
