Juncos Racing has announced that Kyle Kaiser will join its IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship team for the upcoming Rolex 24 At Daytona. Kaiser, a veteran of Juncos’ efforts in open-wheelers, will share its new No. 50 Cadillac DPi-V.R Juncos Racing entry in its debut in the 24-hours enduro with Will Owen and two other drivers yet to be named.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to compete in the Rolex 24 with Juncos Racing. It’s very special to have my first experience in endurance racing at such a historic event with the organization I have been a part of for the last five years of my career,” Kaiser said. “I have been impressed with the incredible progress the team has made over the last month preparing for the race, and I have the utmost confidence our program will be extremely competitive with the Cadillac power behind us. I am anxious to get behind the wheel of the DPi and continue our preparation for the race.”
Kaiser made four IndyCar Series starts this year with Juncos Racing, having come up with the team through the Road to Indy ladder series, winning the the 2017 Indy Lights championship along the way.
“We are looking forward to continuing our work with Kyle after many years together,” said team owner Ricardo Juncos. “We started our program with Kyle back in 2014 and have created great chemistry with him in our team over the past five seasons. Not many teams can say they have had the chance to work with the same driver in four different series during their career, which shows Kyle’s commitment and confidence with Juncos Racing. We are thrilled for the opportunity to continue our relationship with Kyle and would like to thank Kyle and sponsors for their dedication to our team.”
Kaiser will make his official debut with Juncos’ new IMSA team at the Roar Before the 24 test in early January. At this time, the Rolex 24 is expected to be Kaiser’s only IMSA start in 2019.
