  • MADISON, IL —Noblesville native Conor Daly had a great start to his weekend at Gateway Motorsports Park and a fifth place finish in Saturday’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500 was the icing on the cake.

Foyt Racing driver managed to gain three spots on pit road after another driver was penalized, allowing him to take the final green flag in seventh place. Daly then capitalized on the ensuing restart and moved from seventh to fifth.
