Only one individual in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES handles both the responsibility of driving the racecar and owning his own team: Ed Carpenter. As one of the most experienced drivers in the field, 2020 is Carpenter’s 18th season of Indy car competition. Even now as he competes exclusively in the oval events, the 39-year-old has 22 top-ten finishes since starting his own team and has led at least one race in each of the last 12 seasons. He solidified his status as a hometown favorite when he scored back-to-back pole positions for the Indianapolis 500 in 2013 and 2014; in 2018, he became only the 10th driver in the 102-year history of the Indianapolis 500 to win three or more pole positions. The 2003 Butler University graduate resides in Indianapolis with wife Heather and their children Makenna, Ryder and Cruz.
Conor Daly will race the United States Air Force Chevrolet in 13 of 17 NTT INDYCAR SERIES races in 2020. For the road and street course events, he will complete the lineup of the No. 20 and will be entered in the 104th Running of the Indianapolis 500 in ECR’s third car.
The Noblesville, Ind. 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 supplemented his 2018 and 2019 Indianapolis 500 appearances by becoming one of the most trusted reserve drivers in the NTT IndyCar Serie
Born in Hoofddorp, Netherlands, Rinus van Kalmthout began karting in 2009 at the age of 8. With sights set firmly on the NTT IndyCar Series, he transitioned to the Road to Indy in 2017 and launched his U.S. career driving as Rinus VeeKay. In only three years, he finished second in the 2017 USF2000 standings, won the 2018 Indy Pro 2000 championship and was runner-up in the 2019 Indy Lights title chase. In all, the Dutch teenager earned 16 Road to Indy victories and 36 podium finishes in just 48 races. VeeKay has joined Ed Carpenter Racing as the full-time driver of the No. 21 Chevrolet for the 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season.
