Conor Daly hopes to start the 2017 racing season a little earlier than planned.
The Verizon IndyCar Series driver is one of 10 finalists for the Race Of Champions’ ROC Factor North America contest to determine who will team with James Hinchcliffe on Team North America in the all-star racing event later this month in Miami.
“It’s a cool deal they have to bring in a wildcard, per se,” said Daly, who will race the No. 4 ABC Supply car for AJ Foyt Racing when the Verizon IndyCar Series season begins March 12 in St. Petersburg. “I know it was a big hit (in London) at Race Of Champions and ROC is big race everyone looks at. Drivers from all the major disciplines of the sport are coming here to compete against each other. It would be a cool opportunity to maybe participate against them.”
Voting for the ROC Factor North America is open to Facebook users through Jan. 9 at THIS LINK. The winning driver will compete with Hinchcliffe in the ROC Nations Cup on Jan. 22 at Marlins Park in Miami. Daly is hopeful that he can join Hinchcliffe – his friend and roommate – as well as Ryan Hunter-Reay, Alexander Rossi, Gabby Chaves, Juan Pablo Montoya, Tony Kanaan and Helio Castroneves as INDYCAR stars slated to compete in the two-day event that also includes an individual competition.
“Everyone wants to do it,” Daly said. “It’s going to be tough to win (the contest) and I appreciate the votes of everyone who votes for me. We all voted for Hinch as a dancer, and even though I don’t look as sparkly or dance like him, I’ll do my best (if picked).”
