'I want to compete for wins and championships' - Conor Daly

Conor Daly has expressed his desire to be fighting at the front of the NTT IndyCar Series on a full-time basis after two seasons of uncertainty.

Daly has been without a full-time drive since the end of 2017 after being dropped by A.J Foyt's team and has been running part-time campaigns for the previous two seasons.

This season Daly ran with Andretti Autosport at the Indianapolis 500 scoring himself a personal best 10th place finish and will also run the season finale at Laguna Seca in the #25 car.

With Max Chilton withdrawing from the oval rounds of the championship, Daly had also been drafted into the Carlin team to fill the seat of the #59 Gallagher-Chevrolet.

Daly has been linked with a driver the McLaren Racing SP Chevrolet team for the 2020 season.

When asked by IndyCar.com if he could be in a full-time seat for 2020, he replied “I don’t know, man, I want to be here, I want to compete for wins and compete for championships. We’ll take it one step at a time.”

At the previous round at Gateway, the Indiana-born driver ran consistently inside the top-10 and went on to cross the line to score Carlin's best IndyCar result with a sixth-place finish.

“I felt so competitive, ” he added. “It was solid, overall, moving forward and I was racing with the guys I want to race with, like Simon Pagenaud and Alexander Rossi.

“Racing with those guys is an incredible amount of fun and I can be proud of that.”
