Juncos Hollinger Racing has announced the addition of Lindsay Brewer to its Indy NXT team for 2024.

The 26-year-old Brewer graduates from the USF Pro 2000 Championship and will drive the team’s No. 76 Dallara in the upcoming 14-race season. She will be the first U.S. female to race in IndyCar’s official feeder series since Leilani Munter in 2007.

“Driving at the top level of open-wheel racing in the US has been a dream of mine ever since I was a young girl,” said Brewer. “To be able to take this step up and drive Indy NXT is not only exciting for me, but also a dream come true.”

After starting her racing career at the age of 11, Lindsay moved through the U.S. karting ranks before advancing to open-wheel race cars in 2021. Her competitive resumé includes the Skip Barber Formula Race Series, Indy Pro 2000, the F1600 Championship Series and USF Pro 2000.

The Denver native joins Juncos Hollinger Racing’s junior team after getting a first taste of the Indy NXT car at the Chris Griffis Memorial test in October. She also tested at Barber Motorsports Park in November.

“I’m incredibly thankful to Juncos Hollinger Racing and team principal Ricardo Juncos for allowing me to show what I can do, and for everyone that has supported me on this journey including my previous teams, my advisor Pieter Rossi, my manager Chris Young, and my sponsors C4 Smart Energy and Gtechniq,” Brewer added. “To be representing America and women in a full season at this level of motorsport is something I can be proud of, and is motivation for me to work as hard as I possibly can on and off the track. I’m looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish.”
