250ok’s chief executive officer Greg Kraios, who grew up in Speedway,
Ind. as a lifelong race fan, identified deeply with Juncos Racing
founder Ricardo Juncos’ story of working up from humble beginnings in
Argentina to becoming an owner of an IndyCar team. Kraios experienced a
similar journey, growing up in a working-class Indiana neighborhood,
ultimately working at Exact Target before founding his own technology
“We needed a sponsor and were down to the wire. When Greg offered to
support us, and we connected over our personal journeys, we knew this
sponsorship was meant to be,” said Ricardo Juncos, owner of Juncos
Racing Team. “Our team worked hard this season to qualify for the Indy
500, and 250ok was the final piece of the puzzle we needed.”
Last Friday, Kyle Kaiser, Juncos Racing driver, crashed the team’s car
during practice. They managed to secure an unsponsored car to compete in
the qualifier for the Indianapolis 500, where Kaiser achieved the
ultimate upset, securing the final spot on the field by besting Fernando
Alonso by a mere .02 mph. Now, Juncos Racing and Kaiser will race with
250ok’s logo on their car, a turnaround from their humble qualifying run.
“After hearing Ricardo’s story, and knowing they were in need of a
sponsor, I jumped at the opportunity,” said Greg Kraios, CEO of 250ok.
“From our similar upbringings, supporting his hardworking and
odds-defying team felt like a personal calling that also allowed me to
achieve a childhood dream.”
This marks the first year of 250ok’s relationship with Juncos Racing.
