Some cool news from one of the top Mazda Road to Indy teams – Juncos Racing will be moving its headquarters from Brownsburg, Ind. to Speedway, Ind.

With the goal of becoming a Verizon IndyCar Series team in the future, Juncos Racing announced it will relocate to a new headquarters located on Main Street in Speedway, Ind. The team, which currently fields six cars in the Mazda Road to Indy, plans to build a $3 million, 41,000-square-foot Juncos Technical Center. An additional 30,000 square feet will be available for expansion so Juncos can perform machining, painting and other work in-house, limiting the need for outsourcing.

Construction is expected to begin in June, with completion projected for spring 2016.

“The creation of the Juncos Technical Center marks a historical turning point for the team,” said Ricardo Juncos, team principal of Juncos Racing. “Less than 10 years ago, we were a small karting team in Florida and I continue to be amazed by the amount of growth and success we have seen in such a short period of time.”

Juncos Racing has won two championships in Pro Mazda Presented by Cooper Tires and currently fields the cars of Spencer Pigot and Kyle Kaiser in Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires. Juncos said the growth of his team helps advance drivers, mechanics and other team personnel up the racing ladder.

“The team has grown larger and stronger each year, which created the need for a facility like the JTC,” he said. “This new facility will allow Juncos to continue to expand into new series. This undertaking wouldn’t be possible without the incredible passion and desire of every member of Juncos Racing. I am truly grateful for all of the hard work they put in to make this dream a reality.”
