Daly To Compete For DRR In Nitrocross Opener

CARMEL, Ind. — Conor Daly will take on a new challenge this weekend as he will compete in the Nitrocross season opener for Dreyer & Reinbold Racing JC at MidAmerica Outdoors in Jay, Okla. 

The news comes after Daly’s sudden departure from Ed Carpenter Racing last week in the NTT IndyCar Series. Daly’s best result this season came in the 107th Indianapolis 500, where he finished eighth. 

“I’m incredibly excited to join Dreyer & Reinbold Racing JC and compete in the upcoming Nitrocross race in Oklahoma,” Daly said. “The chance to test my abilities in this intense, adrenaline-fueled series is something I’ve been anticipating. I’m grateful to the team for believing in me and providing this incredible opportunity. I can’t wait to get behind the wheel and showcase what we can achieve together.

“I also want to thank Travis Pastrana and Nitrocross for all of their help and effort in getting this program together.”

Nitrocross is set to run alongside Ultra4 USA’s off-road championship on June 16-17.

The Ultra4 USA and other events this week at MidAmerica Outdoors can be streamed live at AmericanOutdoorEvents.TV.

“We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Daly to Dreyer & Reinbold Racing JC for the first round of the 2023-24 Nitrocross season,” team co-owner, Dennis Reinbold said. “Conor’s proven talent and racing prowess make him an ideal addition to our team. We have no doubt that his unique skills will significantly contribute to our success in this thrilling motorsport discipline.”
