Indianapolis, Indiana (September 25, 2018) – Juncos Racing finished off a successful outing in the Eighth Annual Chris Griffis Memorial Open Test with rookie Rinus VeeKay and Heamin Choi at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Both drivers completed six sessions in the Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires during the two-day event.

Rinus VeeKay and Heamin Choi joined drivers from around the world to test on the 2.439 mile, 14-Turn road course this past weekend. Drivers dealt with diverse weather conditions starting off with cool temperatures and cloudy skies on Day 1, and turning into sunny skies with warmer temperatures for the final day.

VeeKay (Hoofddorp, Netherlands) rejoined Juncos Racing after winning the 2018 Pro Mazda Championship earlier this month. The 18-year-old kicked off the weekend on a high note in the No. 21 Jumbo/Juncos Racing entry setting the second fastest time in the first session. The rookie stayed consistent finishing inside the Top-4 for all six sessions, ending the weekend fifth quickest overall.

“I had a great time driving the Soul Red IL-15 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” said VeeKay. “I would like to thank Juncos Racing, Mazda Motorsports and the Road to Indy organization for this opportunity and I am really looking forward to the 2019 Indy Lights season.”

Choi (Busan, Korea) also rejoined Juncos Racing after running in the Indy Lights season finale at Portland International Raceway this month. Choi, driving the No. 7 Juncos Racing car, continued to gain his confidence throughout the weekend posting consistent times and finishing 10th overall.
