LONG BEACH, Calif. – Only one day after Rocky Moran Jr. was announced to replace Carlos Huertas in the No. 18 Dale Coyne Racing Honda, Moran Jr. will now be sidelined for the rest of the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach weekend due to a broken thumb sustained on Friday in a practice accident.
Conor Daly, the promising young American, has been drafted in as a last-minute replacement. It will be his second Verizon IndyCar Series start (2013 Indianapolis 500) and his first on the streets of Long Beach since winning the 2011 Indy Lights race here.
Third practice is now underway from the streets of Long Beach.
