Juncos Racing’s Kyle Kaiser in the No.32 Chevrolet started Sunday’s Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach from the back of the grid in 24th place and finished the 85 lap event in 16th place.
Speaking following the race, Kaiser commented by saying:
“Overall, I am happy with where we ended up in the race. “There were a couple of mistakes on my part. I had a problem coming out of the pits and had to serve a drive-through (penalty). Then I locked it up going into Turn-1 halfway through the race and we lost a lap doing that. We still managed to finish 16th and move up eight spots. We had really good pace through the race and I know we had a really good race car. I can’t thank the team enough and I cannot thank the guys enough for all of their hard work after qualifying and putting together a good race car. I am really excited for the next race because I know we have a great thing going here and we are just getting better and better every time we get back in the car. Hats off to the team, I’m having a lot of fun racing in the Verizon IndyCar Series.
Juncos Racing team owner Ricardo Juncos commented on the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach by saying:
I am extremely pleased with how the weekend went in Long Beach. This team has really come together and found a great chemistry over the past two events. Kyle (Kaiser) has continued to improve and gain confidence behind the wheel. He proved he can run with the leader’s pace and I am confident he will be successful once we go on track this May. I cannot thank the entire crew enough for all of their hard work. These guys came together and worked until midnight before the race to repair the car after the incident in qualifying. Despite the challenges we have faced as a rookie team, we have shown what we are capable of. I look forward to carrying this momentum into Barber this coming weekend.
