INDIANAPOLIS, IN (September 18, 2020) – Fatheadz Eyewear has been named an official sponsor for Conor Daly at NASCAR's Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series World of Westgate 200 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on September 25.
Daly, a Noblesville, Indiana native, climbed into a kart for the first time at the age of 10. Within five years, he was competing in both United States and international open-wheel ladder systems. He found success in each series. By 2015, he decided to concentrate solely on American motorsports. Full-time NTT INDYCAR SERIES seasons followed in 2016 and 2017. Daly raced in the Indianapolis 500 in 2018, 2019 and 2021. This will be his first time racing in a NASCAR truck.
Conor Daly will be racing his friend and Nitro Circus founder Travis Pastrana. According to Travis, "I'm really looking forward to bringing our rivalry from the LCQ League to the real world," said Pastrana. "We've been getting lots of advice and iRacing on track coaching from fellow LCQ member Parker Kligerman. I'm looking forward to seeing how the hours in iRacing pay off on the track, especially for Conor who has never driven a NASCAR truck in real life. He might be the first person in history to jump into a professional racing series and take the green flag without so much as a single practice lap in real life! Conor is a phenomenal IndyCar driver and a quick learner so I think he will surprise a lot of people."
"We've had a strong partnership with Conor for a couple of years, and after sponsoring Conor in this year's Indianapolis 500, we were happy to have the opportunity to support his first NASCAR truck race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway," said Rico Elmore, Founder and CEO of Fatheadz, Inc. "Conor has been a great ambassador of our brand for years and we are excited to see what he is able to do in this series, as he represents Fatheadz Eyewear."
