Blog Post: Two Podiums to Start the Season!
April 1, 2015
After more than seven months of waiting, we finally went racing again this past weekend in St. Petersburg, FL. A lot had happened since the last time I raced when Juncos Racing and I claimed the 2014 Pro Mazda Championship last August at Sonoma Raceway along with the Mazda Scholarship to move up to Indy Lights. When we arrived at the track in St. Pete everything was different. We were now competing in the Indy Lights Championship Presented by Cooper Tires in the brand new Mazda powered Dallara IL-15 against top teams and drivers from around the world.
St. Pete is one of my favorite tracks and I've had a lot of success there over the years so I couldn't wait to get on track. The weekend didn't get off to a great start. In our first practice session on Friday morning we had a small issue with the throttle that took a while to fix so I didn't get many laps. Before our second session later that afternoon it started to rain heavily. None of the teams did any laps since the forecast was sunny with no chance of rain for the weekend. It wasn't worth the risk of damaging the car if we wouldn't be racing in those conditions.
Spencer Pigot and Kyle Kaiser Return to Juncos Racing to Compete in Indy Lights
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.
