After building an extensive resume in karting from age of 7, Californian Kyle Kaiser advanced to formula cars with Skip Barber in 2009, winning the Western Region Rookie-of-the-Year title, finishing 2nd overall in the 2009-10 championship. Following a 3rd place finish in the 2010/11 Skip Barber Western Region Championship, Kaiser joined World Speed Motorsports and captured the Pro Mazda class championship in the 2012 Formula Car Challenge, winning 8 races, and finishing on the podium in 11 out of the 14 races. He made his professional open wheel racing debut in September 2012 in Star Mazda (now the Indy Pro 2000 Series Presented by Cooper Tires) at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

Kaiser finished seventh in the 2013 Pro Mazda Championship and sixth in 2014. He moved up to Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires in 2015 alongside teammate and eventual champion Spencer Pigot. In 2016, Kaiser took third place in the final championship standings, with victories at Phoenix and WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca and eight total podiums. Kaiser won the 2017 Indy Lights title – and the Mazda Scholarship that helps him graduate into the NTT IndyCar Series – with three wins, three pole positions and eight podium finishes in 16 races.

Juncos Racing

Championship-winning Road to Indy team Juncos Racing made its NTT IndyCar Series debut in 2017, fielding two cars in the Indianapolis 500.

The team was established by Ricardo Juncos in 1997 as a small formula car race program based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After times became financially tough, Juncos relocated to the United States in 2002 where he worked as a mechanic for a small karting team based in Florida. Juncos was then able to open the doors to his own shop and run in karting series throughout the United States.

In 2009, Juncos Racing entered in the former Star Mazda Championship (now the Indy Pro 2000 Championship presented by Cooper Tires), where the team had great success in its maiden season, finishing second in the driver’s championship and third in the team championship. The following year, the team captured its first championship in the series with Conor Daly.

Fast forward to 2015, where Juncos Racing had its most successful season capturing the Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires driver’s championship with current NTT Indy Car Series driver Spencer Pigot and also claimed the Indy Pro 2000 team championship.

Juncos Racing also captured the 2017 Indy Pro 2000 and Indy Lights championships, as the only team to win both series in the same year in the Road to Indy history. It won the Indy Pro 2000 title, won a race in Indy Lights and competed in 12 NTT IndyCar Series races in 2018.

The mission of Juncos Racing is to develop young drivers from around the world into the next level of their racing careers through the Juncos Racing Driver Development Program. Through this program, the team not only works with drivers on track to improve their skills behind the wheel, but also gives them the tools needed to understand

the engineering and mechanics of the race car. Drivers who have participated in the program and have gone on to compete in the next level include Peter Dempsey, Conor Daly, Connor De Phillippi, Chase Austin, Kyle Kaiser, Nicolas Dapero, Victor Franzoni and Spencer Pigot.
