Indy Lights racer Kyle Kaiser will continue with the Juncos Racing team for next season after finishing sixth in the 2015 standings.

The 19-year-old Californian driver will remain with Juncos for a third season.

In 2014 he finished sixth in the Pro Mazda standings with the team and then repeated that result upon stepping up to Indy Lights.

He scored two podium finishes; a third place in Toronto and a second in the penultimate race of the campaign at Laguna Seca.

That was in a 1-2 finish for Juncos behind team-mate Spencer Pigot, who claimed the title in the squad?s first season in Indy Lights.

?I am very confident in the team?s ability to provide me with a car to win races and defend their title during my sophomore season,? said Kaiser.

?The chemistry and team synergy we?ve developed over the past two seasons, combined with their work ethic, passion, and dedication will be a huge advantage going into next year.?

Team boss Ricardo Juncos added: ?This will mark the third consecutive season we will work with Kyle, and sets a team record for the longest successive seasons we have worked with any driver.

?Having closely worked with Kyle last year, I can personally say that he will undoubtedly be a championship favorite in 2016.?

Kaiser is the second driver to have committed to a second season of Indy Lights in 2016 with the same team, after third-placed championship finisher Ed Jones re-signed with Carlin.
