Blog Post: Back in Victory Lane in Houston
July 2, 2014
After about a month off the Pro Mazda Championship was back in action in Houston, TX at a street course built in the parking lot of Reliant Stadium. We were coming off a difficult month of May, we had great pace at the Indianapolis Grand Prix and the Night Before the 500 at Lucas Oil Raceway but only came away with one podium due to some bad luck. The entire Juncos Racing team was ready to bounce back in Houston.
We were one of the first sessions out on Friday morning. The track was very slick for the first half of the session until we laid some rubber down. We had a few issues with the handling during the first session. I came in for a few changes but still wasn’t happy with the car. For the second practice we tried a few more changes. We made some small improvements but not enough to get us to the front. We struggled throughout both practice sessions barely breaking into the top 10. The team and I stayed at the track pretty late on Friday figuring out how we could improve the car and where I could improve my driving.
Spencer Pigot's Fifth Pro Mazda Victory Brings Extended Points Lead in Houston
June 29, 2014
A dramatic weekend at the MD Anderson Cancer Center Speedway at NRG Park ended with another dominant victory this afternoon for Spencer Pigot and Juncos Racing and an extended lead in the Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires.
The result represented a sensational turnaround for the 20-year-old American and his Indianapolis-based team after struggling to find a suitable setup for the bumpy 1.7-mile temporary circuit during practice on Friday. Pigot and his engineers worked hard to improve matters on Saturday, resulting in a strong qualifying session and second place on the starting grid for the first of two 40-minute races which would comprise the Allied Building Products Grand Prix of Houston Presented by Marlin CNG Services.
Blog Post: Great Pace but Tough Races in Indy
May 28, 2014
The hectic month of May is finally coming to an end. We had three races in the Pro Mazda Championship, two at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and one at Lucas Oil Raceway for the "Night Before the 500" event. The month started at the IMS road course for the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis. It was pretty cool to be racing inside the speedway, it wasn't the historical oval but still a very special place to race. The GP was going really well up until the races. I qualified on pole by the biggest margin of the year, almost 4 tenths of a second. Looking back at it, qualifying 3rd or 4th might have actually been better. The front straight is so long at IMS I was a sitting duck out front with everyone behind getting a great draft from me. I entered turn one in about 7th. A few guys that had past me went wide and into the grass, unfortunately one of the spun back onto the track and hit my left rear wheel. It forced me into a spin and to the back of the pack. I was coming back through the field until more contact left me without a front wing. The Juncos guys were on their game and I didn't lose a lap while putting the new one on. So back to 16th I went, with only a few laps to go I managed to come back to 8th.
