Kaiser Confirmed in Juncos Ride for Indianapolis 500

In a surprise to no one, Kyle Kaiser today was confirmed as driver of Juncos Racing car 32 for the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500. Kaiser drove for Juncos this season at the Indycar Classic at Circuit of the Americas. The 500 will be just the second race in the NTT Indycar series this year for Juncos. More races are not confirmed at this time.

Kaiser won the 2017 Indy Lights championship driving for Juncos and it was assumed he and the team would move to Indycar full time.  Kaiser shared he car last year with Rene Binder and Alfonso Celis, Jr. This season, Juncos began a DPi program in IMSA. Kaiser has been one of the drivers for the sports car program.

In 2018, Kaiser qualified for the 500 in 17th, but did not finish due to mechanical issues.

Kaiser is the 35th confirmed driver for the May 26 race.  The 77 entry of Arrow Schmidt Peterson has yet to confirm who will drive what should be the final driver slot.
