Indianapolis, Ind. – Juncos Racing is set for the final pre-season Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires test next week at Barber Motorsports Park. Rookies Kyle Kaiser and Spencer Pigot have shown to be one of the strongest line-ups in the four previous tests and look to continue their development of the Mazda Powered Dallara IL-15.

The Indy Lights series finished the fourth test of the year last week February 18-19 on the 2.74 mile, 13-turn road course at NOLA Motorsports Park (North). Kaiser and Pigot laid down a combined total of 178 laps during the three sessions. The series will finish out the 2015 pre-season test schedule March 3 running 9:00AM – 7:00PM (EST) on the 2.3 mile, 17-turn road course at Barber Motorsports Park.

Kyle Kaiser, 18, (Santa Clara, California) driver of the #18 InterVision/NetApp/JuniperNetworks/Juncos Racing car is pleased with the amount of progress the team has made in the past two months of testing. Kaiser recorded the second fastest lap overall at NOLA.

“Up to this point, the tests have really been about getting acclimated, making changes and learning as much as we could about the car,” said Kaiser. “Since the tracks we have been testing at won’t be on the schedule, it’s been about learning, but going into Barber it will be a different game plan, to really attack the track and get some data we can use in April. The team has continued to impress and perform well everywhere we have gone. I’m happy with the amount of progress we’ve made over the last couple of tests, and I expect us to continue our momentum going into the next one.”

Spencer Pigot, 21, (Orlando, Florida) has maintained a consistent pace behind the wheel of #12 Mazda Scholarship/Juncos Racing car. Pigot set the fastest lap in session one at NOLA.

“We continue to make progress on developing the car every time we go out on track,” said Pigot. “It's been an exciting process and I've enjoyed it. The guys have been working hard at the shop to prepare for Barber which is one of my favorite tracks so I'm looking forward to it very much.” 

Juncos Racing Team Owner Ricardo Juncos is ready to finish out Mazda Road to Indy winter testing with strong results and looks to take the momentum gained to the start of the 2015 Indy Lights campaign next month at St. Petersburg, Florida.

“We have made a lot of ground in the Indy Lights series during testing this winter,” said Juncos. “The whole team has worked very hard together in the development of the Mazda powered Dallara IL-15 and that has shown in our results. I am very pleased with the progress we have made, which would not have been possible without the determination of each driver and crew member. I’m looking forward to a great test at Barber and look to take the knowledge we gain back to the track this season.”

The Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires kicks off the 2015 season March 28-29 on the Streets of St. Petersburg, Florida. For more information please visit juncosracing.com and indylights.com.
