- Conor broke multiple records in the 2010 Formula Star Mazda Championship. He had 7 wins, 9 pole positions, most laps led, 12 podium finishes, and the largest winning point margin since the championship’s inception in 1987.
- He participated in a Formula One straight-line aero test for Force India in May 2012.
- Shortly after a go-kart race in the past, his father, Derek, discovered Conor could hardly get out of bed. After family friends who were doctors heard about his increased thirst and a desire to have a fridge in his room, he was examined in the hospital, and diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2007.
- His stepfather made Conor wear a dog tag when he went to race in Europe, to signify he has diabetes. He also always has a glucose monitor in his car during races and wears a Dexcom G5 sensor connected to his smartphone.
- His dog named Champ passed away on July 25, 2017, at the age of 16.
- He participated in the 30th season of CBS adventure reality-TV series, The Amazing Race, in 2018. When he was eliminated and came back home, he discovered he had lost his manager and was dropped from the A.J. Foyt Enterprises racing team.
- He and his Roush Fenway Racing teammate in NASCAR, Ryan Reed, who is also a type 1 diabetic, were sponsored by Eli, Lilly and Company in May 2018. The sponsorship was rescinded because news surfaced that Conor’s dad used a racial slur in the 1980s.

- He is a big fan of snowboarding.
- Conor loves to play video games and has a Microsoft Xbox console.
- In mid-2019, Conor replaced his Carlin teammate, Max Chilton, in the remaining oval races. It was at Max’s insistence as he deemed oval races too big of a risk.
