Juncos Racing Adds Kyle Kaiser to The Team’s 2014 Lineup
Brownsburg, IN (February 13, 2014) — Promising young driver Kyle Kaiser prepares to launch his second year in the Pro Mazda Championship presented by Cooper Tires.
Anxious to capitalize off the experience gained during his 2013 rookie season, Kaiser is looking forward to being part of the winning tradition at Juncos Racing. “During the off season I’ve had the opportunity to see the passion and hard work Juncos Racing puts into its program, and I’m very confident and optimistic for the new season,” said Kaiser. “This year will also be my first time driving with teammates, which will only be more advantageous for myself and the team every race weekend.”
By the fall of 2012, Kaiser joined the “Mazda Road to Indy” making his professional open-wheel debut at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in the 2012 Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear Tires. Following his debut year, he competed as a rookie in the full 2013 Pro Mazda Championship presented by Cooper Tires, finishing 7th overall and placing in the top 5 in multiple races.
In the seven years prior to advancing to open wheel cars, Kaiser competed at various levels of karting—many of which ended in podium finishes, including a Grand National Championship. In 2010, he competed in the Skip Barber Western Regional Championship, finishing 2nd overall and claiming the “Rookie of the Year” title. The following year, Kaiser finished 3rd overall in the 2011 Skip Barber Western Regional Championship before moving on to claim his first championship in the 2012 Formula Car Challenge presented by Goodyear Tires.
Juncos Racing’s team owner Ricardo Juncos has complete faith in Kaiser’s abilities and predicts a successful future for the young driver.
“We had the chance to test Kyle last December in the Open test at Barber, “ mentioned Juncos. “He left a very good impression on the whole team, and he showed excellent technique and solid personality—all of which are good qualities to have as a race car driver.” Envisioning the upcoming season, Juncos added, “I’m very happy with his commitment to us for this 2014 season. This will be his second year in the Pro Mazda. I have no doubt that he will be at the top soon and will fight for wins…”
Kaiser will join his teammates in the Streets of St. Petersburg for the 2014 Pro Mazda Championship opener.
