Surprise For an Evansville, IN, Wish Kid Is a Ride With IndyCar Racer Conor Daly


HOLIDAY, Fla. (March 2017): Wish Kid Nicholas Hirsch’s dream of attending an Indiana Pacer’s game became even more memorable when his granted wish also included an invite from Wish Granter Indianapolis’ Fastimes Indoor Karting for a little family fun. To his surprise, when Nicholas arrived at the go-kart track as part of a planned activity during his forever wish, he was greeted by professional IndyCar racer Conor Daly. Daly invited Nicholas to ride in the go-cart with him, and the two of them raced Nicholas’s brothers around the track at Fastimes.

“It was so much fun hanging out with Nicholas,” said Daly. “I admire what they do – inspiring hope in these kids. I feel fortunate to be a part of it all.”
