Juncos Racing

Championship-winning Road to Indy team Juncos Racing made its NTT IndyCar Series debut in 2017, fielding two cars in the Indianapolis 500.

The team was established by Ricardo Juncos in 1997 as a small formula car race program based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After times became financially tough, Juncos relocated to the United States in 2002 where he worked as a mechanic for a small karting team based in Florida. Juncos was then able to open the doors to his own shop and run in karting series throughout the United States.

In 2009, Juncos Racing entered in the former Star Mazda Championship (now the Indy Pro 2000 Championship presented by Cooper Tires), where the team had great success in its maiden season, finishing second in the driver’s championship and third in the team championship. The following year, the team captured its first championship in the series with Conor Daly.

Fast forward to 2015, where Juncos Racing had its most successful season capturing the Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires driver’s championship with current NTT Indy Car Series driver Spencer Pigot and also claimed the Indy Pro 2000 team championship.

Juncos Racing also captured the 2017 Indy Pro 2000 and Indy Lights championships, as the only team to win both series in the same year in the Road to Indy history. It won the Indy Pro 2000 title, won a race in Indy Lights and competed in 12 NTT IndyCar Series races in 2018.

The mission of Juncos Racing is to develop young drivers from around the world into the next level of their racing careers through the Juncos Racing Driver Development Program. Through this program, the team not only works with drivers on track to improve their skills behind the wheel, but also gives them the tools needed to understand

the engineering and mechanics of the race car. Drivers who have participated in the program and have gone on to compete in the next level include Peter Dempsey, Conor Daly, Connor De Phillippi, Chase Austin, Kyle Kaiser, Nicolas Dapero, Victor Franzoni and Spencer Pigot.
