New Verizon IndyCar Series team Juncos Racing who are fielding two Chevrolet powered cars in the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Sebastian Saavedra and Spencer Pigot announced the addition of two new sponsors for the most famous motor race in the world.
Ricoh USA and Ray Morgan Company have joined the team as associate sponsors to both Saavedra’s No.17 Chevrolet and Pigot’s No.11 Chevrolet.
Speaking about the new partnerships, Juncos Racing owner, Ricardo Juncos commented by saying:
I am proud to have the support of Ricoh USA and Ray Morgan Company as we make our debut at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “Racing is a very competitive sport and I really appreciate having such highly respected companies standing with us. It is an honor and a privilege to represent them.
Regional Vice President of Ricoh USA, John Steward commented by saying:
Ricoh, in conjunction with Ray Morgan Company, is proud to sponsor Juncos Racing and Spencer Pigot in the #11 car for the 101st Running of the Indianapolis 500, said “Ricardo Juncos is a true American success story. As we celebrate America this Memorial Day, we celebrate the drive, passion and determination of Ricardo, Spencer and the entire Juncos team to make it to the pinnacle of open wheel racing in America.
Sam Pulino, Chief Operation Officer of Ray Morgan Company commented by saying:
The opportunity to partner with Ricoh USA to support Spencer in the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 is quite extraordinary. I have followed Spencer from his early days in karting where he raced for Ricardo Juncos. I watched through the years as they both progressed in racing, ultimately teaming to win two championships on the “Mazda Road to Indy”. Those victories propelled Spencer into the Verizon Indy Car Series. Both have amazing stories. Spencer, karting since he was 8 years old to becoming a Verizon Indy Car Series Driver. Ricardo, his story of coming to America from Argentina with a dream of a life in racing, to becoming a team owner on the verge of his first entry in the Indianapolis 500 Both are worthy of celebration. We are excited to team up with Ricoh in support of the #11 car of Spencer Pigot and Juncos Racing!
Spencer Pigot commented by saying:
I’m excited and honored to be associated with Ricoh USA and Ray Morgan Company. “Sam (Pulino, COO Ray Morgan Co.) has followed my career since the beginning and I cannot thank him enough for his support and that of the Ray Morgan Company. Ricoh is obviously an outstanding company and to have them in my corner at the Indy 500 is awesome. I look forward to having a strong race and celebrating with them, their employees and guests.
