Juncos Racing has confirmed that Californian Kyle Kaiser will return to the team in its No. 32 Chevrolet for the Indianapolis 500. It will be the second straight Indy run with the team for the 2017 Indy Lights champion.
“I am incredibly happy to have the opportunity to qualify for the 103rd Running of the Indy 500,” said Kaiser, who also raced for Juncos at COTA earlier this season. “The team and myself have been working very hard to make this happen, so I’m extremely grateful to everyone who has helped make this possible. It will be great to build off what we accomplished last year — having qualified 17th as a single-car effort was incredible. With this knowledge and experience I am confident we will have another strong showing. I can’t wait to get back on track and get back to work preparing the No. 32 Chevrolet for the biggest race of the year.”
Team owner Ricardo Juncos added, “We are happy that Kyle will be back in the No. 32 car this May. We had a lot of success in qualifying last year as a single car entry, so we are ready to build on what we learned and carry that momentum with us to the speedway.
“We have a lot of history with Kyle. He has been with this team for six years and has gone through our major transitions from Pro Mazda, to winning the Indy Lights Championship and moving up to IndyCar and even in our new IMSA program. We are excited to have the opportunity to continue our work with him for one of the biggest events of the year and look forward to a great month at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “
