Juncos Racing announced Friday that Kyle Kaiser will join its IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship team for January’s Rolex 24 at Daytona, teaming up with newly named full-season driver Will Owen in the No. 50 Cadillac DPi-V.R.

The team’s two additional drivers, one for the full season and the other for the Michelin Endurance Cup races, have yet to be announced.

Kaiser will return to the Ricardo Juncos-led operation after contesting four Verizon IndyCar Series races this year, including the Indianapolis 500.

He first raced for Juncos in 2014 in Pro Mazda before moving up to Indy Lights where he won the series title in 2017.

“It’s very special to have my first experience in endurance racing at such a historic event with the organization I have been a part of for the last five years of my career,” Kaiser said.

“I have been impressed with the incredible progress the team has made over the last month preparing for the race, and I have the utmost confidence our program will be extremely competitive with the Cadillac power behind us.

“I am anxious to get behind the wheel of the DPi and continue our preparation for the race.”

Juncos added: “We are looking forward to continuing our work with Kyle after many years together.

“We started our program with Kyle back in 2014 and have created great chemistry with him in our team over the past five seasons.

“Not many teams can say they have had the chance to work with the same driver in four different series during their career, which shows Kyle’s commitment and confidence with Juncos Racing.

“We are thrilled for the opportunity to continue our relationship with Kyle and would like to thank Kyle and sponsors for their dedication to our team.”
