Future Indy Car Secrets Unveiled at IPC Midwest Keynote
Bannockburn, IL — IPC Midwest Conference & Exhibition attendees will be in for the ride of their lives with keynoter Derek Daly takes the stage. A past Formula One, IndyCar and World Sports Car driver, Daly will present "Secrets of the Future of IndyCars: Where Electronics Will Be the Winning Edge," Wednesday, September 24, 8:30 a.m., at the Schaumburg Renaissance Hotel & Convention Center in Schaumburg, IL.

As someone in a profession that shares with the electronics industry the pressures to go faster, Daly is intimately aware of what it takes to succeed with speed. Not only did he live with the demands to go faster in his work, he was one of the many who looked to the electronics industry to help him achieve it. To Daly, electronics has been the greatest source of competitive edge in the motor sports industry — and he should know. In 1987, Daly test-drove the car with the first electronic dashboard. Throughout his impressive career, he has witnessed firsthand how the role of electronics has lapped other advancements in his industry.

One of only a handful of world-class drivers to compete in all three of the most prestigious races in the world — the Indianapolis 500, Grand Prix of Monaco, and the Le Mans 24-hour endurance race — Daly knows how to be a champion and survivor. In addition to racing, Daly has had championship careers as a television motorsports personality, businessman and, most recently, author. In 2008, MBI Publishing released Daly's first book, Race to Win, How to become a Complete Champion. Mario Andretti, who penned the foreword of the book, believes the lessons Daly teaches, "took guys like me years to learn [and] resonates far beyond the racing industry."

Daly's keynote address at IPC Midwest will span his fascinating and inspiring life and provide a very special insider's look into how electronics holds the key to the checkered flag in racing.
