Conor Daly to Compete with Carlin at Texas Motor Speedway
Conor Daly will join Carlin this weekend for the ninth round of NTT IndyCar Series action at the DXC Technology 600 at Texas Motor Speedway. After recording a top-10 finish at the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500, Daly will bring his oval experience to pilot the No. 59 Gallagher Carlin Chevrolet in place of current driver Max Chilton.
Daly, who raced with Carlin in the early stages of his car racing career in Europe, is ideally placed to compete on the 1.5-mile Texas Motor Speedway oval following his strong month of May and past oval experience in the NTT IndyCar Series. The 27-year-old Indianapolis-based driver last raced for Carlin in 2011 in the former GP3 Series.
Speaking about the upcoming weekend Daly said, “I want to thank everyone at Carlin and Gallagher for the opportunity to get back in a race car at Texas Motor Speedway. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Carlin back in 2011 as I started my European racing journey and to now drive for them in the NTT IndyCar Series is pretty special. I look forward to being able to contribute to the team as best I can.”
Chilton, who is competing in his fourth season of the NTT IndyCar Series, will not compete in the remaining four oval races of the 2019 INDYCAR season. The British driver will compete in the remaining road and street course races this season as originally planned in the No. 59 Gallagher Carlin Chevrolet.
Chilton added, “I would like to thank Gallagher for being supportive of my decision to not compete in the remaining oval races this season – I am extremely fortunate to have such a supportive partner. Risk Management is a central consideration of both Gallagher and myself in how we operate. I’m excited and pleased by the outstanding proactive work being done by INDYCAR around driver safety and the innovation of the solution developed in partnership with Red Bull Advanced Technologies that has created a new aero screen. The innovative solution will be the most advanced single seater driver head protection in the world and will be introduced in 2020. My focus remains on getting the best possible results for the No. 59 Gallagher Carlin crew and I will be helping the team and Conor in any way I can to that end.”
Daly will join the rest of the NTT IndyCar Series field on-track at Texas Motor Speedway starting on Thursday, June 6.

CRAFT 1861 TO SPONSOR RC ENERSON AND CARLIN AT OFFICIAL INDYCAR TEST
COTA, Texas, February 11, 2019 – Scottsdale-based Craft 1861, a leading provider of wellness products, will be the official sponsor of young, American racer Enerson as he tests with Carlin at this week’s official NTT IndyCar Series open test at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas from February 12-13.
Craft 1861’s production and content marketing partner, WePursuit, will be a secondary sponsor at both events.
“We are thrilled to partner with Carlin and RC Enerson in this preseason test,” said Eric Lujan, Chief Business Development Officer, Craft 1861. “Our strategy is to offer products to people interested in wellness and a healthy lifestyle, and we believe they will have particular appeal with fans in the NTT IndyCar Series.”
Enerson added, “I’m so excited to be given this opportunity by Craft 1861 and so thankful to them for the chance to drive in INDYCAR again. Carlin is a really young, driven team and the work we’ve already done together is really exciting. I’m aiming to repay Craft 1861’s faith in me with a strong performance at COTA this week which will hopefully lead to some race opportunities with Carlin this season.”
Craft 1861 launched at the end of last year, with a high-quality product line developed through pioneering data-driven research to appeal to a broad swath of consumers interested in the product’s amazing health benefits. Among its many clients are business executives, athletes, travelers, and stay-at-home parents.
“We are extremely proud to be able to work with a new brand to INDYCAR,” said Trevor Carlin, owner of Carlin. “RC is a very talented driver and has already shown he has huge amount of potential. With Craft 1861’s backing, he could be one of America’s next INDYCAR stars. Hopefully this is the start of a long relationship with Craft 1861.”
Craft 1861 has plans to explore a select number of races in 2019 with hopes of being a full-time entry with Enerson and Carlin in the 2020 NTT IndyCar Series.
Chris Fitzgerald, Chief Executive Officer of Natively, the Albuquerque-based holding company for both Craft 1861 and WePursuit said today, “INDYCAR is a natural partner for us. We are a pioneering new company, and the NTT IndyCar Series is the fastest growing motorsport series in the world right now.”
Craft 1861 is a fast-growing, privately held company that already has more than 75 employees and is forecasting revenues of at least $25 million in 2019, its first full year of operations.
The Verizon IndyCar Series held the second day of qualifying today for the Indianapolis 500 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and locked in all 33 starting positions. In a very strong team qualifying effort, both Carlin cars qualified in the top 20 with the No. 23 Fiasp Chevrolet of Charlie Kimball starting the race on Sunday in…
