Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing is changing its driver lineup.
The NTT IndyCar Series team has released Jack Harvey after less than two years with the team. Veteran Conor Daly will race in the No. 30 car in the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 at World Wild Technology Raceway in Madison, Ill., on August 27.
The team has not announced its driver plans for the season's final two races at Portland and Laguna Seca.
“First, I would like to thank Jack Harvey for all of his efforts on behalf of RLL for the last year and a half," team co-owner Bobby Rahal said in a Tuesday press release on Tuesday. "He committed fully to the team but for whatever reason, we weren’t able to achieve the results that he or the team deserves and we wish him well in the future.
"We will use the final three races of the season to gauge other racing talent. I’m very pleased that Conor has agreed to join us in St. Louis. He’s been strong there and I feel that he can bring value to the team while also providing us with a strong effort. I look forward to having him with us.”
Harvey was never able to make much of an impact for RLL, finishing a season-best 13th this season at Long Beach. Harvey's best finish in his 30 races for RLL was 10th last year at Nashville. He came to the team from Meyer Shank Racing following the 2021 season.
Daly, 31, lost his ride at Ed Carpenter Racing in June. He has since race three times for Meyer Shank Racing. His best finish this season was eighth at the Indianapolis 500 for ECR.
“It means a lot to have a chance to drive for the Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing team," Daly said. "I’ve known Bobby ever since I was a child, our families are very close. Mike Lanigan is someone that has known my dad for a long time, and I’ve known him well too. And David Letterman is a friend of our family as well so it’s very special to have the chance to drive for this organization.
"I will obviously do the best job that I can for them to make them proud and make their partners proud and I hope to be able to deliver everything they are looking for. I’m excited for the chance to get back behind the wheel at one of my favorite tracks at World Wide Technology Raceway.”
