Ricardo Juncos, owner of Juncos Racing, has formed a new partnership with Brad Hollinger to form Juncos Hollinger Racing, both announced Aug. 3.
With the new partnership, the renewed race team has plans to run the final three events of the 2021 NTT IndyCar Series season, along with plans to field an entry for the entire 2022 season.
“The opportunity to partner with someone who shares many of the same values, passion, determination and is forward-thinking like Brad Hollinger makes this an incredible moment in our team’s history,” Juncos said in a team release. “Brad has a lot of experience at one of the highest levels in racing and brings resources that will create more opportunities and growth for all of our programs.”
Hollinger has extensive experience in racing ownership, with years of being the second-largest shareholder and board member in the Williams Grand Prix Holdings Formula 1 team.
“I am very excited to join Ricardo and the Juncos Racing team,” Hollinger said. “Since we first met, Ricardo’s relentless drive for success, knowledge of open-wheel racing, and engineering expertise were quite apparent. His winning spirit along with our shared vision and commitment to be a front running team made my decision to join Juncos Racing a simple one.”
While no driver has been announced as of yet, the team has plans to field an entry at Portland International Raceway, WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca and Long Beach in 2021.
The team name reached households across the world when it qualified for the 2019 Indianapolis 500 after driver Kyle Kaiser bumped former F1 world champion Fernando Alonso off the grid in the final round of qualifying.
Kaiser’s 31st-place finish in the Indy 500 that year is currently Juncos’ most recent result in the series prior to its three-race slate this year.
A Juncos-owned team has never run the full IndyCar schedule, coming closest in 2018 when it fielded the No. 32 in 12 of the 17 races.
