Indianapolis, Indiana December 22, 2023

Juncos Hollinger Racing’s INDY NXT by Firestone driver line-up will feature Lindsay Brewer in 2024.

The 26-year-old graduates from the USF Pro 2000 Championship and will drive the team’s #76 Dallara during the upcoming 14-race season. She will be the first US female to race in INDYCAR’s official feeder series since Leilani Munter in 2007.

After starting her racing career at the age of 11, Lindsay moved through the US karting ranks before embracing the challenge of open-wheel racing in 2021.

Her competitive resumé includes races in the Skip Barber Formula Race Series, INDY PRO 2000, the F1600 Championship Series, and USF Pro 2000.

The Denver native joins Juncos Hollinger Racing’s junior team after getting a first taste of INDY NXT machinery at the Chris Griffis Memorial test in October. She also drove for the race-winning squad at Barber Motorsports Park in November.

“Driving at the top level of open-wheel racing in the US has been a dream of mine ever since I was a young girl,” she said. “To be able to take this step up and drive INDY NXT is not only exciting for me, but also a dream come true.

“I’m incredibly thankful to Juncos Hollinger Racing and Team Principal Ricardo Juncos for allowing me to show what I can do, and for everyone that has supported me on this journey including my previous teams, my advisor Pieter Rossi, my manager Chris Young, and my sponsors C4 Smart Energy and Gtechniq.

“To be representing America and women in a full season at this level of motorsport is something I can be proud of, and is motivation for me to work as hard as I possibly can on and off the track. I’m looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish.”

 

The 2024 INDY NXT by Firestone season will get underway on 10 March at St. Petersburg, Florida before culminating on 15 September in Nashville, Tennessee. The calendar will consist of three street courses, eight road courses and three ovals.

Ricardo Juncos said: “It’s a proud moment to welcome another female driver to Juncos Hollinger Racing after competing with Julia Ballario and Tatiana Calderon in Pro Mazda previously. We’re looking forward to working with Lindsay to build on her Road to Indy experience and to bring her up to competitive speed in INDY NXT as quickly as possible.

Joint Team Owner, Brad Hollinger said: “Graduating to INDY NXT is a big challenge for any driver but Lindsay’s determination is there for all to see and we’re ready to give her all the support and coaching she needs to realise her potential in the series. We made good progress during the end of season tests at Indy and Barber, and the aim is to build on that in the coming weeks and months.”
