Conor Daly’s Air Force Chevy features a new paint job inspired by B-2 stealth bombers. According to his team at Ed Carpenter Racing, “The number 20 in the ECR racing shop has been painted and features a pattern of silver, blue and black silhouettes of the world’s only stealth bomber.
A group of select aviators from the 509th. Bomb Wing was the first to see the US Air Force’s 2021 Chevrolet two weeks ago. Daly and members of the ECR team traveled to Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri to meet the men and women who service, assist, and operate the aircraft, and displayed the # 20 car alongside the inspiration for its design – a B- 2 Spirit.
The 509th bomb wing and its B-2 fleet serve as part of the US Air Force’s conventional and strategic combat force. Whiteman AFB is the sole operational base for the strategic stealth bomber.
The 29-year-old IndyCar driver has extended his longstanding relationship with the U.S. Air Force in a program that includes all road and road courses, as well as the Indy 500, for 2021 with ECR.
« It is truly incredible to be able to pay tribute to one of the most outstanding aircraft in the US Air Force fleet, » said Daly. “The B-2 Spirit represents some of the greatest technologies in the modern world and some of the most impressive aerial power plants. It means a lot to me and ECR to be in our NTT IndyCar series car. We hope it’s as powerful as the B-2.
« We have such incredible cars every year, » continued Daly. “We introduced the story of the jet fighter, which is so apt because our cars look like jet fighter jets. Now we have the B-2 on our car in a really cool pattern. We really hope the fans love it as much as we do! “
