“I am very excited to be working with Juncos Racing,” said Simpson. “The team has so much experience and success in the Road to Indy program, not to mention winning the Indy Pro 2000 title multiple times. Indy Pro 2000 is a great championship and I can’t wait to drive the car in our upcoming tests!”
Simpson will make his official debut in the Indy Pro 2000 Championship this April in the season opener at Barber Motorsports Park. The 16-year-old will also compete on the oval at Lucas Oil Raceway, Road America, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, and the streets of Toronto.
