Juncos Hollinger Racing has announced it has temporarily dropped Lindsay Brewer from its Indy Nxt line-up over unfulfilled contract obligations.

The 27-year-old is currently 20th in the standings halfway through the season, with a best finish of 15th achieved twice and a personal best starting position of 19th.

“Lindsay Brewer has been a valued member throughout her time at Juncos Hollinger Racing, and it has been a privilege to have her on the the team,” said Juncos in a team statement.

“However, due to contractual obligations being unfulfilled, Lindsay will not be driving for the JHR Indy Nxt programme for the time being. We wish her the best and hope she can return when able.”

Juncos is now without a driver for the next race at Mid-Ohio, with its other signing Ricardo Escotto competing part-time and not set to race again until the penultimate round.

Brewer karted as a youngster before moving into car racing in 2015 in the United States’ Legends championship, but she then left motorsport to go to university. She returned to action in sportscars, and after that joined Skip Barber Racing School. In 2021 she came sixth in the school’s own single-seater series, and raced in TC America in a Honda Civic.

Two years ago she jumped up the open-wheel ladder to join Exclusive Autosport in USF Pro 2000. She finished eighth on her debut but only got one other top-10 finish from her part-time campaign (due to being a late signing) and came 15th in the standings. For 2023 she contested every race but never finished higher than 11th, a result she achieved twice, and was 18th in the points table.
