Lexington, Ohio (May 5, 2019): Juncos Racing finished the fourth round of the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship this weekend at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Teammates Will Owen and Kyle Kaiser drove the No. 50 Juncos Racing Cadillac DPi-V.R car to a ninth place finish.

After experiencing unfavorable weather conditions throughout the three-day event, the IMSA WeatherTech Championship finally saw sunny skies and warmer temperatures during the two hour 40-minute timed race.

Will Owen (Castle Rock, Colorado), who qualified the No. 50 entry in ninth took over for the first two stints on the 2.258 mile, 13-Turn road course. The American battled with many of the top veterans throughout his stints, running close to the Top-5.

Kyle Kaiser (Santa Clara, California), who was confirmed earlier today to drive Juncos Racing’s NTT IndyCar Series entry for the 103rd Running of the Indy 500, took over for the final two stints. After two more flawless pit stops, Kaiser ended the race in ninth.

“We have now completed the fourth round of the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship here at Mid-Ohio,” said Owen. “It was a good way to end the weekend after a few solid practice sessions, even though we struggled in qualifying, so it really made it worth it after dealing with the rain and cold. I started the race and had a fun time battling other prototypes especially with the guys who are the top racers in the series. We had great pace in our No. 50 Juncos Racing Cadillac DPi-V.R car. It was the best pace we have had up to this point in the season. Throughout all of our stints between Kyle (Kaiser) and myself we had really good pace compared to the rest of the cars. It’s really promising as in Long Beach we were close and this time we were closer. We are still progressing and have a lot more to learn. If we can get the car up front for the start than I am confident we can run in the front. It was another flawless day by the crew during the pit stops, so we have to be proud of that.”

“Overall, I am really happy with our race here at Mid-Ohio,” said Kaiser. “Will (Owen) had a great start to the race, putting up a good fight with the cars around him. I am really proud of his run. When I got in the car the crew did two great flawless stops, so hats off to the crew. The hardest part to this race was just getting through the traffic. With all of the classes running here on a smaller track there were not as many places to pass which makes it really challenging. Traffic management was the name of the game for this race figuring out where to pass and where you can’t and where to put the car, so it was a great learning experience for me. There is a lot to gain and a lot to learn so hopefully I will have a chance back in our #50 Juncos Racing Cadillac DPi-V.R car later this season.”
