Juncos Racing is pleased to announce after three years of planning and 10 months of construction, the team has moved into their brand new 40,000 square foot headquarters located in Speedway, Indiana, the "Racing Capital of the World." To celebrate this new state-of-the-art facility, Juncos Racing will be hosting an open house Friday, December 9th from 6:00 to 8:00PM at 4401 Gilman Street.

The team first announced their plans to relocate and build this new facility in May of 2015 in conjunction with the Speedway Redevelopment Commission. The extensive project broke ground in January of 2016 on the corner of Gilman Street and Allison Way and finished on time in early November.

Team Principal Ricardo Juncos was thrilled to move the team into their new headquarters as this new home will provide them with the tools and resources needed to take the team to the next level.

“This is a dream come true for us at Juncos Racing," said Juncos. “This facility shows where we came from, where we are, and where we hope to go in the future. I left Argentina in 2002 due to the huge financial crisis the country was in and came to the United States. I had $400 in my pocket and no clear direction of where my career in racing would go. To think that we would one day be moving into our own first class facility was not even a vision. However, two years ago the idea of this building became a reality and now here we are. We’re very excited to welcome everyone to our open house this Friday to showcase the future of Juncos Racing. I would like to thank the Town of Speedway, Speedway Redevelopment Commission, Tim McGovern (McGovern Construction), Scott Perkins (Blackline Studios), Dale Kruse (Kruse Consulting), Don Spencer (Spencer Engineering), the team and drivers, and my family for their incredible support this past year in making this opportunity possible."

The 40,000 square foot building hosts multiple office spaces, eight car bays, a paint booth, simulator room, and machine shop along with parking for multiple transporters.
