INDIANAPOLIS — Conor Daly has long wanted to give the NASCAR Cup Series a try. Now, he will. Early Thursday morning, The Money Team announced that Daly will make his debut next weekend on the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL. Daly, 30, will drive the No. 50 Chevrolet with sponsorship from Bit Nile.
This won’t be his first NASCAR appearance though. His last came in 2021 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for Niece Motorsports in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. He also raced there in 2020 too.
On top of that, Daly raced in the Xfinity Series at Road America in 2018 for Roush Fenway Racing.
The Indiana native has made 97 career NTT INDYCAR Series starts under his belt. He won’t be the only open wheel driver there next weekend. Marco Andretti will race for Big Machine in the No. 48 Chevrolet in the Xfinity Series race too.
For TMT, this is their 4th Cup Series race. Kaz Grala raced the car in the Daytona 500, COTA and the Coca-Cola 600.
