Daly’s Indy 500 entry to be overseen by renowned crew chief Pearn – IndyCar

Conor Daly’s Ed Carpenter Racing Indy 500 entry will be overseen by renowned crew chief Cole Pearn, who took Martin Truex Jr to the 2017 NASCAR Cup title.

Pearn became crew chief for Truex in 2015 before going on to take the title two seasons later, while last year they earned seven wins – more than any other entrant.

Pearn quit full-time NASCAR competition at the end of 2019 to return to his native Canada and run a business with his wife, but he has served as an analyst for NASCAR.com.

He will become lead engineer on Daly’s third ECR entry for the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500 on 23 August, alongside three-time Indy 500 polesitter and team owner Carpenter and full-time ECR driver Rinus VeeKay.

“I am super excited to get a chance to compete in the Indy 500 with Conor Daly and Ed Carpenter Racing,” said Pearn.

Third IndyCar engine supplier “will happen” amid Ferrari speculation

IndyCar president Jay Frye says he remains confident that a third engine manufacturer will join Chevrolet and Honda in the IndyCar Series, as speculation increases that it will be Ferrari.

Ferrari Formula 1 team principal Mattia Binotto told SkySport Italia in mid-May that the company was evaluating the viability of an IndyCar project as F1 introduces budget caps, freeing up financial and human resources for other projects.

Roger Penske, who currently owns both IndyCar and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, said earlier this month that Ferrari is “definitely interested in coming”, and now Frye says he believes a third manufacturer will happen “sooner or later”.

Frye told Autosport: “As you know, there have been conversations going on with various manufacturers for a few years, but now with Roger being here, that adds another new and very positive element for us.

“I hate saying anything because people will say, ‘you’ve been saying

Rossi: Condensed 2020 IndyCar schedules are causing team errors – IndyCar

Andretti Autosport’s Alexander Rossi says that reduced on-track time is causing the apparent proliferation of errors among all IndyCar teams in the paddock, pitlane and on the race tracks.

Rossi, who took his first podium of the season in Sunday’s race at Road America said that ironing out all bugs and “finding limits” is often not possible before the crucial qualifying sessions and races.

The COVID-19 pandemic-affected season has had a radical effect on IndyCar protocol, and in order to keep teams on site en masse for as little time as possible at last weekend’s Road America round, despite it being a double-header weekend (another result of the pandemic), the schedule was tightly-compacted.

There were just two hours between 75-minute practice and the qualifying session on Saturday and barely more than that between qualifying and the race on both days, and on Sunday there was no practice at all.

“I
