Daly returns to Nitrocross for Calgary round

Conor Daly will return to Nitrocross for next weekend’s trip north of the border to GMC Stadium in Calgary, which will host the only snow and ice round of the season.

Daly will once again race for Dreyer & Reinbold Racing in the headline all-electric Group E class, having featured for the team twice earlier this season, driving alongside Robin Larsson, Andreas Bakkerud and Fraser McConnell. For the last two events — doubleheaders in Phoenix and California — Dreyer & Reinbold’s fourth car has been occupied by Brian Deegan.

“I’m thrilled to be back with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing JC for Round 8 of the Nitrocross season,” said Daly. “Ice will be a new challenge for me as dirt was earlier in the season, however, I believe I will be able to adapt quickly.


“The team’s commitment to excellence and the electric atmosphere of Nitrocross make this a perfect fit for me. I can’t wait to hit the track for an unforgettable race.”

Daly made his debut in the category at the season opener in Oklahoma last June, and raced in rounds two and three at Utah Motorsports Campus in August. He took his best finish to-date in the first part of that doubleheader, finishing fifth ahead of reigning champion and current points leader Larsson.

“Dreyer & Reinbold Racing JC is delighted to welcome Conor Daly back to our team for Round 8 of the Nitrocross season,” said Dreyer & Reinbold Racing team owner Dennis Reinbold. “Conor’s previous performances have showcased his talent and determination, and we are confident that his return will add an extra layer of excitement to the upcoming race.”
