IndyCar driver, Conor Daly, likens a typical race to a fight. The exhaustion of stabilizing your body and the vehicle around a track at 250 MPH is intense. After about 2 hours of this, he’s lost up to 9,000 kcals and 16 lbs of water weight. While the struggle may appear to be purely physical, the real challenge lies in differentiating IndyCar racing with big sports like NASCAR and Formula 1. Conor believes that embracing the social media as a tool for notoriety will help in this cause.

Conor Daly is just your average young go-hard who drives roughly 250 MPH to get to work. In fact, that is his work. What kind of training is required to maintain control of his mind and his vehicle during an average work day? Find out when Conor walks us through a typical training day. Navigating the physical demands of the job with his diabetes is something Conor is very proud of. He’s been successful in managing his insulin since he was diagnosed at 14. Hear more about his love for the sport. Listen NOW!
