Conor Daly and the U.S. Air Force will return with Andretti Autosport for the NTT IndyCar Series season-ending Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

The 27-year-old Noblesville, Indiana native drove with Air Force branding in the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 for Andretti in May. He notched both his career best start of 11th and best finish of 10th in his sixth start and ran inside the top ten for much of the day.

It will be his first road course start since the 2017 season finale at Sonoma Raceway. He has since also raced for Carlin Racing at Texas and Iowa.

“I couldn’t be more excited to get back to my road course routes and take on Laguna Seca with Andretti Autosport and the United States Air Force," said Daly.  "It’s been incredible to be a part of the team this year carrying the USAF colors and to represent them at the season finale will be very special.

The U.S. Air Force joined forces with Daly at last year's Indy 500 and has since served as an associate sponsor for Andretti Autosport's American quartet of Alexander Rossi, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Marco Andretti and Zach Veach.

“We are thrilled to have Conor, as well as the U.S. Air Force, join us again for the season finale in Laguna Seca,” said Michael Andretti, the CEO of Andretti Autosport. “Conor was a great addition during the month of May and being able to continue this great partnership with the Air Force at the series season finale is another special opportunity to show our support and honor the brave men and women serving our Nation.”
