McLaren Killer Juncos Racing Gets Sponsor For Indianapolis 500


Juncos Racing – the little racing team that could – who knocked mighty McLaren along with two-time Formula One world champion Fernando Alonso, out of the 2019 Indianapolis 500, finally got a sponsor for the race.

Last week, after driver Kyle Kaiser put in a lap that barely – by .02 miles per hour – edged out Alonso for one of the starting spots in the last row of the race, there was still the tiny little matter of securing a sponsor since Juncos Racing’s sponsor had bailed on them prior to qualifying.

But now Juncos Racing not only has a sponsor, but a local sponsor, to boot. Juncos Racing’s new sponsor is 250ok, an Indianapolis-based email analytics platform, which has become the lead sponsor of the Juncos Racing team.

Team founder Ricardo Juncos and his Juncos Racing team is from Argentina but 250ok CEO Greg Kraios grew up in Speedway, Indiana and is a lifelong race fan.
