Juncos Racing is pleased to announce today that Sting Ray Robb has joined the team for the 2019 Indy Pro 2000 Championship Presented by Cooper Tires. Sting Ray is the second driver announced by Juncos to the reigning 2018 Indy Pro 2000 (former Pro Mazda) champions line-up.
obb, a young 17-year old from Payette, Idaho, joins Juncos Racing after collecting one podium, four Top-5’s and recording the fastest lap at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg during the 2018 Indy Pro 2000 season.
“I am excited about the 2019 season as I return to the Road to Indy with the series standout, Juncos Racing.” Sting Ray stated. “Juncos has proven to be the best in the industry and will, I’m sure, be challenging me to sharpen and hone my race craft to even higher levels. I am blessed to have the opportunity to be racing among this very deep and talented pool of competitors.
“I plan to be extremely demanding of myself as I learn from this team and we progress together throughout the season. I am confident that as a driver for their awesome team, we will see success at many levels. I stand amazed at how I have seen God work in every aspect of my life. I’ll keep Him number one in my life and I’ll drive that #2 car to all my God-given ability. Let’s go racing – Godspeed!”
Sting Ray made his first appearance with Juncos Racing at the 2017 Chris Griffis Memorial Test and just completed a very successful test session with Juncos this week in Sebring, Florida.
Team Owner Ricardo Juncos said, “We are thrilled to add another great talent to our Indy Pro 2000 line-up. Sting Ray (Robb) showed a lot of potential in his first test with our team back in 2017. This past year he had great consistency on track and we are looking to carry that momentum into this season.
“I would like to thank Sting Ray, his family, and supporters for the opportunity to add him to our strong Indy Pro 2000 line-up.”
The 2019 Indy Pro 2000 Championship kicks off next month on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida with Rounds 1 and 2 March 9th – 10th.
