Juncos Racing

Established in 1997 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Juncos Racing opened its doors as a full-service Formula Racing Team. Over the next five years, the team competed in various National Championships including the Formula Renault 1600 Championship, the Formula Renault 2000 Championship and the National Sport Prototype Championship of Argentina.

In 2003, team founder and owner, Ricardo Juncos, felt there was a need to carry his knowledge and expertise to North America. In September of 2003, Juncos Racing opened its doors in Miami, Florida as a full service karting team.

The next few years proved to be successful beyond imagination as the newly formed Juncos Racing team captured 19 Local, Regional and National karting titles throughout North America.

In 2008, Juncos Racing dedicated most of its time establishing and training its drivers and crew members in preparation of the much anticipated next step into the vast world of open wheel Formula Car Racing.

In 2009, Juncos Racing entered into the Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear which proved to be a challenging, yet successful season resulting in multiple wins, second in the driver’s championship and third in the team championship. 2010 saw the second-year team making new records, winning the driver’s championship and finishing second in the team championship, turning out to be a dream season for the entire team. 2011 delivered even more wins and podium finishes to add to the team's resume, and in 2012, the Mazda Road to Indy team expanded its operation to involve cars in both the Star Mazda Championship and Firestone Indy Lights series.

The team's headquarters is in Brownsburg, Ind., just outside of the “racing capital of the world”, Indianapolis.The team also has a shop in Fort Pierce, Fla., to promote year-round testing.
