Ed Carpenter Racing will field both Conor Daly and Rinus VeeKay full-time in the NTT IndyCar Series for the 2022 season which gets underway with the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg in less than three weeks time.
VeeKay, who had a breakthrough season last year, scoring his maiden IndyCar victory at the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis is back for his third season with the team and will be hoping to continue this momentum into the new season.
Daly who was recently confirmed as VeeKay’s full-time team-mate following spells with Carlin over the past two years will be hoping that the continuity of working with the team at ECR will assist him this season.
As for what team owner Ed Carpenter will do this year, it remains unclear, the American has said that he will confirm his plans for this season at a later date but Paddock Eye understands that he plans to compete in the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge in May.
The Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg takes place from February 25-27.
