Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing to Prepare Entry for 2015 Indy Lights Champion Pigot in Three Events in 2016 Including the Indy 500
October 20, 2015
Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing (RLL) announced today that the team will prepare an entry for 2015 Indy Lights champion Spencer Pigot in three Verizon IndyCar Series events in 2016 with the intent to add more. Sponsorship details for events at St. Petersburg, Fla., the Grand Prix of Indianapolis and the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 will be announced at a later date.
Orlando, Florida native Pigot, 22, earned back to back championships the past two seasons. In 2014 he won the Pro Mazda championship with six wins, five poles and seven podium finishes as well as the Winterfest Championship. In 2015 he earned six wins, four poles and 10 podium finishes en route to the Indy Lights Series title. Both seasons were with Juncos Racing. Pigot drove an Indy car for the first time at a one-day test at Sonoma Raceway in August with Team Penske.
Spencer Pigot Dominates Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca to Capture 2015 Indy Lights Championship
September 21, 2015
The final weekend of the 2015 Indy Lights Championship Presented by Cooper Tires proved to be one of the most intense battles in the Mazda Road to Indy championships this season. Rookie Spencer Pigot delivered Juncos Racing their first Indy Lights championship by winning both Rounds 15 and 16 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca this past weekend. Teammate and fellow rookie Kyle Kaiser picked up his highest finish of the season taking second in Round 15.
The weekend at Mazda Raceway began with two test sessions, followed by two practice sessions on the 2.238 mile, 11-Turn road course. Kyle Kaiser (Santa Clara, California) topped the charts for both test sessions along with the first practice session. Juncos Racing then went on to show the strongest qualifying efforts by any team on Saturday morning, with Kaiser taking the second starting position and Pigot qualifying third.
Blog Post: Big Points Weekend at Mid-Ohio
August 6, 2015
Heading into Mid-Ohio we only had one goal in mind. Win or lose, I had to gain points on Harvey to have a real shot at winning the championship at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The first practice on Friday morning went very well, I was fastest by over half a second. We were very fast again in the second session but a few red flags prevented us from being right at the front.
Qualifying on Saturday morning was very close as always in Indy Lights. The session started at 8:00am so it was a bit cold out and the track temp was very low. We decided to start on used Cooper Tires and then pit twice for two sets of stickers. Usually that would have been the right call but looking back on it I don't think we had enough laps on each new set. They take a bit longer to reach their sweet spot when the temperatures are lower and we didn't do enough laps on either set to really get the maximum out of them. Still I was able to qualify third and we'll know better for the next early morning qualifying session.
