BROWNSBURG, Ind. – Juncos Racing has added veteran engineer Lee Dykstra to its 2013 Firestone Indy Lights squad as the team race engineer.
Dykstra, former race engineer for IZOD IndyCar Series drivers James Hinchcliffe, Raphael Matos and Graham Rahal, brings a high level of experience to the growing team.
During Dykstra’s previous five seasons as race engineer he has helped claim a championship, three runner-up championships, 17 wins and 14 poles within the Firestone Indy Lights and Champ Car Atlantic series.
Dykstra’s extensive resume also includes Director of Technology in Champcar World Series, President to Special Chassis Inc., and President of Dekon Engineering.
“Juncos Racing is a young, vibrant team,” said Dykstra. “I am looking forward to working with them and bringing my experience to their Indy Lights team, the final step in the Mazda Road to Indy ladder series to IndyCar for aspiring drivers from around the world.”
“I’m extremely happy to have an Indy Lights engineer and a person with so much experience in motor-racing as Lee Dykstra,” said Ricardo Juncos, Juncos Racing team owner. “All I have is positive words to describe Lee and all of the achievements he has made as an engineer and race car designer through his racing career. I’m so proud that Juncos Racing, as a new team this past season in the Indy Lights series will have the privilege to work with Lee. He is the piece of the puzzle that I have been looking for to have a very competitive Indy Lights team. I don’t have any doubt we will be on top of the list in the 2013 season.”
