Kyle Kaiser will share Juncos Racing’s new Cadillac DPi-V.R with Will Owen and two other drivers during the season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona.
His participation in the daylong event will mark Kaiser’s IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship debut. The California native and successful Road to Indy driver contested his first IndyCar Series races in 2018 as Ricardo Juncos’ team grew its footprint in North America’s premier open-wheel championship.
Kaiser brought his scholarship reward as the 2017 Indy Lights champion to Juncos’ growing IndyCar effort this past season. He made four starts, including one from 17th at the 102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500 after a noteworthy qualifying run.
“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,” Kaiser said.
“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.”
With Owen named a full-season driver and Kaiser signed up for Daytona, Juncos has one more full-time and one more endurance driver to name before the Rolex 24 goes green Jan. 26, 2019.
