In a statement from Carlin Racing PR this morning, the 31 car will not race at Texas. Their statement:
Due to the economic impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic in Europe, the planned No. 31 Carlin entry will not be entered in this weekend’s NTT INDYCAR SERIES season opener at Texas Motor Speedway. We will continue to work with our partners in Europe and aim to have two entries for the remainder of the 2020 season. Conor Daly will represent Carlin this weekend in the Genesys Technology 300 as originally planned in the No. 59 Gallagher Carlin Chevrolet.
This may be a trend this season. The shutdown has had a financial impact throughout the world. Still no word on whether Rinus VeeKay will be driving Saturday. Daly was previously committed to Carlin for this race.
