A.J. Foyt Racing has hired Conor Daly to run the Indianapolis 500.

It will be the IndyCar debut for the 21-year-old Indiana native, who tested for Foyt at Sebring in December.

Daly is the son of former Formula One and IndyCar driver Derek Daly, who retired before Conor was old enough to watch him compete. Still, the Indianapolis 500 was part of Conor Daly's childhood and racing in the event was a goal.

He spent the last two seasons competing in GP3, the European-based series which is often a stepping stone into Formula One.

Daly has won in every series he has competed in, including GP3, Firestone Indy Lights, Star Mazda, and Skip Barber. He won national titles in the Mazda and Barber series.
