The result of the 2020 Indy 500 did not read well for Conor Daly, son of Irish F1 & Indycar legend Derek Daly.
The Ed Carpenter team prepared United States Air Force Chevrolet was listed as finished 29th after contact on lap 91 from 200 at the world famous Indy circuit after qualifying 18th. Car No. 47 Conor Daly and No. 7 Oliver Askew crashed.
Commenting Conor said after the race: “I’m not entirely sure what happened. We were having a good run, and it suddenly felt like my left front tire fell into a hole. It was very strange. I thought I had it saved, and it was a shame to see Oliver (Askew) hit the wall, as well. My mistake, and I am just looking forward to Gateway now. I am so thankful for the U.S. Air Force. They are the most incredible partner I’ve ever had, and I hate this for them.”
Sato wins for the second time
Ex-Jordan Formula 1 driver Takuma Sato climbed to a higher level of immortality last Sunday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, winning the 104th Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge and becoming just the 20th driver to capture “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” at least twice.
Sato, from Japan, won the race under caution in the No. 30 Panasonic/PeopleReady Honda fielded by Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing when Spencer Pigot crashed in Turn 4 on Lap 195. Sato also won the race in 2017, with Andretti Autosport. He also raced at Mondello in Formula Vauxhall in his early career with Diamond Racing.
1st – TAKUMA SATO (No. 30 Panasonic/PeopleReady Honda): “Obviously, we pitted (a lap) short from Dixie (Scott Dixon). The fuel strategy was a bit tight. I saw Scott was coming right through out of Turn 4, and he was screaming coming at me. And I just held him off. Thank you so much.” (About winning at age 43): “This was the entire Rahal Letterman Lanigan team. HPD and Honda gave us a lot of power, a lot fuel mileage. And my boys … they sacrifice a lot. I can’t thank all of the people (enough).”
