Kaiser Gets Second Indy 500 With Juncos


Kyle Kaiser will attempt to qualify for his second consecutive Indianapolis 500 in the cockpit of Juncos Racing’s No. 32 Chevrolet.

The American driver finished 18th at Circuit of The Americas in his lone NTT IndyCar Series start of 2019 to this point and will aim to improve upon his 29th-place result in his Indy 500 debut a year ago.

After securing three guaranteed IndyCar starts in 2018 as the 2017 Indy Lights champion, Kaiser has focused mainly on Juncos’ new IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship program with a Cadillac DPi-V.R, most recently finishing seventh with Will Owen on the streets of Long Beach.

“The team and myself have been working very hard to make this happen, so I’m extremely grateful to everyone who has helped make this possible,” Kaiser said. “It will be great to build off what we accomplished last year; having qualified 17th as a single-car effort was incredible.

“With this knowledge and experience I am confident we will have another strong showing. I can’t wait to get back on track and get back to work preparing the No. 32 Chevrolet for the biggest race of the year.”

Following a week of practice, Kaiser will aim to avoid being one of three drivers bumped from the starting field of 33 during qualifying for the 103rd “500” on May 18–19.

Intentionally different

Apexes and braking points are a racetrack's slowest features, but they're also rife with overtaking opportunity. With no ads and an intense focus on quality, The Apex and The Braking Point podcast are just as unique.

Being unique can come at a cost, but we don't see it that way. With the value-for-value model, a partnership between The Apex and its readers can be formed — something far more valuable than ad revenue.


Here are our latest NTT IndyCar Series articles that go beyond the headline between checkered flags.
