Daly will drive the no.44 truck in the beginning of March.
Conor Daly returns to truck racing. It has been revealed this Wednesday that the IndyCar driver will have another shot in NASCAR. He will driver Niece Motorsports’ no.44 truck at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 5th.
Conor Daly reacts to the announcement: “Ever since the checkered flag fell in Las Vegas last year I was bothering Cody [Efaw] about another chance to get in a truck. I learned so much during my first experience in the Truck Series, I had to try and come back to put it to good use! Working with everyone at Niece was an incredible experience and I want to go out and be able to deliver for them. It will be a shame not to have Travis Pastrana out there to chase around, but I hope to be able to make him proud. A big thank you to Fatheadz Eyewear and Elliott’s Custom Trailers & Carts for coming back to support this effort!”
The team’s general manager Cody Efaw adds: “It was a blast to have Conor in the truck last year. Conor genuinely loves racing, and it’s evident any time that you’re around him. I think he learned a lot last year in the truck and will be able to pick up where he left off. We are excited to have him again this year and are looking forward to a solid performance.”
Conor Daly’s only Truck Series race to date was also at Las Vegas. He finished 18th in the no.42 Niece Motorsports truck.
