Juncos Racing has announced Kyle Kaiser will join its IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship team for the 2019 Rolex 24 at Daytona.
Kaiser, who drove with Juncos in four IndyCar races last year and won the 2017 Indy Lights Championship, will pilot its new Cadillac DPi-V.R for its first season racing in the top level of IMSA prototypes, alongside previously confirmed driver Will Owen. The final two drivers for the programme will be announced in due course.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to compete in the Rolex 24 with Juncos Racing,” said Kaiser. “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.
“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.”
Juncos Racing Team Owner Ricardo Juncos has built a five consecutive year relationship with Kaiser running him in three open-wheel series.
“We are looking forward to continuing our work with Kyle after many years together. 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.”
