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 Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires) at Mazda 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 Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and eight total podiums. Kaiser won the 2017 Indy Lights title – and the Mazda Scholarship that helps him graduate into the Verizon IndyCar Series – with three wins, three pole positions and eight podium finishes in 16 races.
