At this point, one could fill a short book with quotes from Conor Daly’s iRacing streams from the past month.

For the fourth consecutive week, Daly streamed the IndyCar iRacing Challenge race on his Twitch account, with hilarious commentary from himself and some of his fellow competitors.

As usual, Daly was joined by Alexander Rossi, James Hinchcliffe and Ed Carpenter. Also joining this past weekend was rookie Rinus VeeKay.

HARD WORK PAYS OFF: Daly looking forward to Ed Carpenter Racing opportunity

All five drivers were communicating via a private Discord server that was synced with the stream. Below is a collection of some of the best exchanges between the five drivers:


Practice:

(Note: During Friday night’s iRX race, Daly challenged Rossi to a Lunchables eating contest.)

VEEKAY: “What are Lunchables?”

DALY: (laughs) “Well, they’re something we grew up on in America.”

CARPENTER: “Raun (Rinus’ father and nutritionist) would not approve of you eating them.”

DALY: “Raun would not approve of you eating Lunchables. Think of all the great foods, minimized into small pieces and wrapped in plastic and you eat them as if they are like a wonderful item.”

VEEKAY: “Seems American.”

HINCHCLIFFE: “That’s the best way to put it.”

DALY: “Yes, absolutely. I don’t think you guys would have them.” 


DALY: (responding to a fan question in the chat) “I have met Kyle Busch, yes. We’ve had dinner, in fact.”

VEEKAY: “Did you eat M&Ms?” 

DALY: “Uh, no I did not eat M&Ms for dinner.”

HINCHCLIFFE: “Then you did dinner wrong.”

DALY: “Well, we’re the ones who are about to buy at least $75 worth of Lunchables, so…. Rinus, we’ll save you a Lunchable.” 

VEEKAY: “I will get you some cookies from Santa Claus.”

DALY: (laughs) “Great news, thank you.”


Qualifying: 

(A fan in the chat asks Daly if he thinks the sim races would be better if drivers could choose their own setups.)

DALY: “Uh, no. If we had the ability to change the setups, people would spend HOURS, and completely throw their lives into a trash can and set it on fire developing a sim setup.”


Race:

(Daly and VeeKay are racing side-by-side.)

DALY: “WE GOT HIM! OLE SHOOTER MCGAVIN!”


(Will Power and Simon Pagenaud can be heard talking in the background on IndyCar’s driver’s feed)

DALY: “Penske drivers are shouting at people, that must mean the race is coming to a close.”
