Indianapolis, Dec. 5, 2012: Up and coming American driverConor Daly will test the No. 14 ABC Supply Honda-powered IndyCar at Sebring International Raceway Dec. 13 -- two days before his 21st birthday.

Daly, who will be testing an IZOD IndyCar Series car for the first time, is the son of Derek Daly, a former Formula One and Indy car driver.

"Conor Daly is one of the exciting up-and-coming drivers in open wheel racing today," said Larry Foyt, team director of A.J. Foyt Racing. "I had spoken to Conor at the F-1 race in Austin and I was impressed. I thought this test was a perfect opportunity to see how he works with our team. Depending on how it goes, we may be able to do something with him in the future."

Daly, a native of Noblesville, Ind., has won in every series he has competed including Firestone Indy Lights, Star Mazda, GP3, and Skip Barber. He has spent the last two seasons competing in GP3, the European-based single-seater series. Daly won championships in Star Mazda and Skip Barber National series.

"I am honored to have the opportunity to drive an Indy car for the first time with A.J. Foyt Racing," Daly said. "I've grown up at the Indy 500 and have always dreamed of getting in an Indy car someday. I will do the best job I can to get to know the team and complete all the things they've got planned for the test. I can't thank Larry enough for organizing this and taking an interest in my future."
