Juncos Hollinger Racing

Note: This continues a series of 2024 INDY NXT by Firestone team previews on INDYNXT.com. The season starts Sunday, March 10 on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida.

Starting Lineup: Lindsay Brewer (No. 76 Juncos Hollinger Racing)

2023 in Review: Juncos Hollinger Racing had two cars on the grid in 2023, with three different drivers racing each entry over the course of the season. Rookie Matteo Nannini highlighted the year with a victory in his No. 75 car in the GMR Grand Prix in May on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course. Victor Franzoni made a comeback to race this car on five occasions, scoring one top-10 finish in Race 1 at WeatherTech Raceway at Laguna Seca. Matthew Brabham had the most overall success, competing in five races across both cars. Both of his starts in the car came on the ovals at Iowa Speedway and World Wide Technology Raceway. He finished fourth and seventh, respectively, in them. In the No. 76 entry, Brabham took over the car for the final three events and finished ninth, fifth and fourth, respectively. Reece Gold started in the No. 76 on the streets of St. Petersburg and in the second race at Barber Motorsports Park. He finished eighth and 17th, respectively. Rasmus Lindh took over the keys from May at Indianapolis through World Wide Technology Raceway, scoring four top-10 finishes, including a third place at Iowa, in nine tries.

New for ’24: Juncos Hollinger Racing trims from two cars to one and will feature a new driver with Brewer, who brings a large following of fans due to her frequent social media presence and racing career. She competed last season in USF Pro 2000.

Keep an Eye on This: Brewer becomes the first American female to race a full season in INDYCAR’s official development series since Leilani Munter in 2007. While she knows it’s going to be a difficult series in which to win as a rookie, she’s confident she can compete. Former kart racing champion Brewer addressed two obstacles this offseason in improving her physical fitness to counter the rigors of driving one of these powerful pieces of machinery and securing enough budget to be able to race aggressively.

Little-Known Fact: Juncos Hollinger Racing has enjoyed rich success with seven combined championships between Indy Pro 2000 and INDY NXT by Firestone. The team’s last INDY NXT title came in 2017 with Kyle Kaiser. The other was in 2015 with Spencer Pigot. Brewer, the 18th driver to take the wheel of a Juncos Hollinger Racing entry in INDY NXT, is hopeful she can deliver strong results in 2024.
