Daly Delivers with Best Home Track Finish in Crazy Race

A rough start, a challenging set of tires, intermittent rain and a chaotic finish were no match for Conor Daly as he rebounded to finish fifth Saturday in the GMR Grand Prix on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course. It was his best NTT INDYCAR SERIES qualifying effort since qualifying sixth in this race last year and eighth for the NTT INDYCAR SERIES race on the IMS road course last August. The start was declared wet, so Daly and the rest of the field had to start on Firestone rain tires. Daly said once he shed that set of tires for another set of alternates, his car was “perfect.” And that began his rally back to the front of the field. On Lap 62, Daly pitted his car for another set of rain tires as the moisture picked up.
