As the winningest driver in the Mazda Road to Indy, Spencer Pigot earned four scholarships from Mazda to continue his career’s momentum towards the Verizon IndyCar Series. In five years, he won four championships and 24 races in USF2000, Pro Mazda and Indy Lights.
After winning the 2015 Indy Lights championship, Pigot ran his guaranteed three-race Verizon IndyCar Series program in a Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Honda. Following the Indianapolis 500, Pigot transitioned to the Chevrolet-powered ECR team to compete the remaining road and street course races in the No. 20.
After joining ECR, Pigot scored two Top 10 finishes in seven races, including a career-best 7th at Mid-Ohio. He took the checkered flag in nine out of ten races his rookie year, his streak broken only at the season finale when a mechanical issue sidelined him from competition. Pigot worked on improving from his qualifying attempts each weekend, gaining an average of six positions in every race he finished.
Pigot will retain his duties as the road and street course driver for the No. 20 Chevrolet for the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season.
