Conor Daly to make Xfinity Series debut with Roush


IndyCar veteran Conor Daly will join Roush Fenway Racing in a third Ford Mustang in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Road America this August, the team announced Friday.

Daly will join Ryan Reed and Wisconsin native Ty Majeski in Roush’s line-up for the road course event. Daly, like Reed, competes at the highest levels of racing while managing his Type 1 diabetes. Lilly Diabetes will sponsor all three cars.

“I’m very excited for this opportunity to be partnered again with Lilly Diabetes and to be able to drive a Jack Roush Ford,” Daly said. “I’ve raced at Road America almost every year since I was 16 and have won there. I have driven almost every form of car, but this will be my first stock car experience. I’ve been an avid follower of NASCAR and have been friends with Ryan for a long time and been to many races to support him.”

Reed was on hand with Daly for the announcement at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

“Lilly Diabetes has done so much for me and I’m excited to have them represented in full force at Road America,” Reed said of the triple sponsorship for Road America. “Conor and I have been friends for a while and this is awesome that we’ll get to compete together as teammates. I can’t wait to see him behind the wheel of one of our Xfinity cars.”
