From Ed Carpenter Racing…

Championship-winning crew chief Cole Pearn has joined Ed Carpenter Racing’s engineering staff for next month’s Indianapolis 500. After a successful career in the NASCAR Cup Series, Pearn stepped away from full-time competition at the close of the 2019 season. He will return to racing in August to serve as lead engineer for Conor Daly and his U.S. Air Force Chevrolet. Daly’s special edition No. 47 entry pays homage to the founding year of the U.S. Air Force and one of its most iconic aircraft, the Bell X-1.
