Carlin has announced via twitter that Max Chilton will be piloting the #59 car on all road courses as well as the Indianapolis 500 for the 2020 IndyCar season.
Following a short career in Formula 1 driving for Marussia, Chilton switched to the American open-wheel scene in 2015, joining Carlin for the Indy Lights championship.
He returned to Carlin in 2018 after racing for Chip Ganassi for two years, and will look for some better results this year following a tough couple seasons. Chilton had a similar part-time arrangement last season and never quite broke into the top 10 in his 13 races.
“The partnership between myself, Gallagher and Carlin is a strong one that honestly feels more like family than the normal motorsports driver, sponsor, and team relationship,” said Chilton.
Last season Conor Daly shared the seat and took up driving duties for the ovals, but has since moved to Ed Carpenter Racing this season to drive the road courses.
At this time Carlin has not announced who will drive their second IndyCar entry or who will drive the oval courses for the #59.
