November 6, 2014
Juncos Racing is pleased to announce “Mazda Road to Indy” graduates, Spencer Pigot and Kyle Kaiser, will return to the team to compete in the 2015 Indy Lights Championship Presented by Cooper Tires. The American duo competed with Juncos Racing last season recording multiple wins, poles, and podium finishes, and claimed the 2014 Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires.
The 2014 Pro Mazda Champion, Spencer Pigot, 21, has reached the final step in the “Mazda Road to Indy” ladder system with Juncos Racing advancing to the 2015 Indy Lights series. The Orlando, Florida native proved to be a stand out driver in the Pro Mazda series, capturing eight wins and nine poles to secure the Pro Mazda Championship in addition to winning the 2014 Cooper Tires Winterfest Championship. The 2015 season will mark Pigot’s third year as a Mazda scholarship driver.
Blog Post: We Did It-Pro Mazda Champions!
August 28, 2014
There are so many words that can describe the last Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires weekend. Intense, dramatic, chaotic, unbelievable, amazing, etc. It really was a weekend no one could have predicted. In the end we came out on top. I won the 2014 Pro Mazda Driver's Championship and we won the Team Championship for Juncos Racing. It wasn't as easy as it sounds...
I hadn't been to Sonoma Raceway before so I was really looking forward to it, I had been told by many drivers that it was a great track. After the first practice session on Thursday I could agree with them. Lots of elevation changes, blind corners, high speed and low speed sections. It has a little bit of everything which is what you want in a road course. Practice went well, I was 2nd in both sessions. We made a few changes and we were right up at the front again in the final practice session on Friday morning. Qualifying was close. The second and third flying laps were the ones you had to get the most out of, that's when you had optimum grip from the Cooper Tires. I came up just short of pole position by less than a tenth to my championship rival Scott Hargrove. Going into race one I had a 19-point lead in the championship. I didn't need to take any big risks but we knew if I could win race one it would be a much more relaxing finale on Saturday.
Mission Accomplished as Spencer Pigot Clinches Pro Mazda Championship
August 27, 2014
After riding an emotional roller-coaster of epic proportions during last weekend's final two rounds of the Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires at Sonoma Raceway, Spencer Pigot emerged as a deserving series champion on Saturday.
The 20-year-old from Orlando, Fla., received by far the loudest ovation during the following evening's season-closing banquet which featured almost 300 guests representing all three levels of the Mazda Road to Indy - USF2000, Pro Mazda and Indy Lights - when he walked to the stage to accept the champion's trophy and a check for almost $590,000 from Mazda's Director of Motorsports, John Doonan, to assist in graduation to Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires in 2015.
