Daly Does Dale: Hoosier Conor Daly landed a full time ride for the 2016 IndyCar season, albeit with one of the lesser teams Dale Coyne Racing. The rough equivalent of a football player signing with the hapless Colts, it’s a well deserved ride in the big league and we’re extremely happy for Conor. For “Dollar Dale,” Daly’s a dramatic upgrade over Dracone, Vautier, et al and it’s perhaps evidence that he’s been reading our site. Happily, Coyne’s crewmembers should be much safer performing their duties in the new year, as the attrition rate in DCR’s pits was Battle of the Somme ghastly. Seems he’s gotten somewhat charitable, that Coyne chap.
Coyne Claims Clausen: In another stunningly early announcement from Coyne a.k.a. the king of procrastination, Bryan Clauson will drive for the team in the all important 100th running of the Indy 500. The four time king of USAC will attempt to make his third 500 start, guaranteeing at least a couple of Hoosiers will attempt to race in the state’s biggest event since the Battle of Tippecanoe Creek.
