Kaiser returns to Juncos for Indy Lights season

Updated: 

Kyle Kaiser will return to Juncos Racing for a second season competing in Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires.

"I’m excited to return for another year of Indy Lights with Juncos Racing,” Kaiser said. “The chemistry and team synergy we’ve developed over the past two seasons, combined with their work ethic, passion, and dedication will be a huge advantage going into next year. I am very confident in the team’s ability to provide me with a car to win races and defend their title during my sophomore season.

"There is a great race schedule ahead of us, and I’m looking forward to competing on some of my favorite tracks. I am more motivated than ever to succeed, and I’m grateful for the team, my sponsors, and everyone involved for putting their faith in me this upcoming season.”

An 18-race Indy Lights schedule, which includes new races at Road America, Phoenix International Raceway and the streets of Boston in support of Verizon IndyCar Series events, was released earlier this week.

Kaiser joined Juncos Racing for the 2014 Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires. He won the season finale at Sonoma Raceway, and earned multiple podiums, helping Juncos Racing win the team championship.

The 2016 season will mark the longest consecutive run team principal Ricardo Juncos will have worked with any driver that has been a part of Juncos Racing. Juncos is confident Kaiser will be a candidate for the 2016 championship.

“Having closely worked with Kyle last year I can personally say that he will undoubtedly be a championship favorite in 2016," Juncos said. "Kyle found himself on the podium a number of times in 2015 and demonstrated his astounding pace throughout the season. I want to once again thank the Kaiser’s for instilling their trust in us especially in our first season of Indy Lights. We look forward to bearing the fruit of our 2015 labors.”
