Austin, Texas (March 24, 2019): Juncos Racing completed their first race of the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series this weekend in the inaugural INDYCAR Classic Circuit of The Americas. Kyle Kaiser drove the No. 32 NFP Chevrolet Juncos Racing to an 18th place finish.

The first ever running for the NTT IndyCar Series on the 3.41 mile, 20-Turn road course kicked off with three practice sessions followed by qualifying on Saturday at the Circuit of The Americas. A red flag in the first session would cost Kaiser his projected fastest lap and would have to settle for the 21st starting position.

The weekend concluded with the 60-lap race on Sunday. The 24-car field would pass easily through Turn-1 and settle into a caution free rhythm throughout the first half of the race. Juncos Racing went on to perform four flawless pit stops. California native Kaiser drove the No. 32 NFP car to as high as seventh and went on to finish 18th.

Kaiser said, “That was an extremely long, hard fought race today. I think it really paid to go off strategy pretty early in the race. It made it pretty challenging as we were on a different cycle compared to most of the other cars, so it made it interesting in the middle of the race being on old tires when everyone else was on new. We were able to bring the No. 32 NFP Chevrolet home in 18th, which was a couple positions up from where we started. Overall it was a successful race. The team did an excellent job in the pits. We had really clean pit stops and I learned a lot. I really hope we can continue on and expand with this program and be back at a couple of more events this year. A huge thank you to NFP for their support and making this all possible.”

Team Owner Ricardo Juncos said, “Overall I am very pleased with how the weekend turned out in COTA. Even though we did not get the result we would like, this was our first event this season, and we were able to progress a lot throughout each session. Kyle did a fantastic job. His dedication and passion really shows with how well he was able to perform and deal with being back in the car since this was his first race since last May. We cannot thank NFP enough for all of their support. The passion and values of NFP parallel our mission at Juncos Racing, which makes our relationship very valuable and possible. We are working on more plans this season and hope to be back in the IndyCar paddock soon.”
