Alexander Michael "Alex" Rossi and Conor Daly are a team of IndyCar Drivers on The Amazing Race 30.

Despite the laid-back disposition and the occasional struggle in tasks, particularly by Conor, they found themselves in a dominant alliance with fellow frontrunners Cody & Jessica and Kristi & Jen. Riding off four leg wins, they appeared to be shoo-ins for the final leg once they arrived in Hong Kong. Indeed, despite a brief hiccup at the Detour, they were one of the first teams to arrive at the final task: looking for signs on the street and using the corresponding leg numbers to open a suitcase. Unfortunately, they over-analyzed the signs they found and ultimately ended up behind the trailing Kristi & Jen, sending them home in 4th.
