American driver Conor Daly will attempt to qualify for his first Indianapolis 500 as a second driver for A.J. Foyt Racing in the month of May. Daly, who has been racing primarily in Europe recently, will jump into the No. 41 ABC Supply Honda alongside Foyt regular Takuma Sato in the No. 14. The son of former F1 and IndyCar racer Derek Daly tested Sato's No. 14 over the winter at Sebring International Raceway in Florida. “I almost can't describe what it means to have the opportunity to race in the Indianapolis 500,” Daly said in a team release. “I have been to the 500 every year of my existence except for last year when I raced in Monaco. It is truly my home race since I was born and raised in the Indianapolis area. "I am so thankful that A.J. and Larry [Foyt] have given me my first shot at the greatest race in the world.  I know this will sound cheesy but I've never been happier in my life; this race means so much to me.” Daly now becomes the fourth participant in this year's '500' Rookie Orientation Program on Apr. 11 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, joining A.J. Allmendinger of Team Penske, Tristan Vautier of Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, and Carlos Munoz of Andretti Autosport.
