The native New Yorker finished sixth in both his USF2000 seasons, taking pole and winning at St. Petersburg last March, and became known for his incisive passing. In 2018 he will join the series runner-up Rinus VeeKay who was confirmed at Juncos last week.

Megennis made his first run with Juncos Racing at the 2017 Chris Griffis Memorial Test at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Although Megennis ran into electrical issues the first day, he was able to put together a strong run finishing the final session of both days at the top of the speed charts.

Said Megennis: “I’m very excited to be joining Juncos Racing for the 2018 Pro Mazda Championship. We had a great Chris Griffis test where we led sessions on both days.

“I have a lot of confidence in Juncos' ability to not only give me the fastest car on the grid but also to help me become a better all-around driver. The team has proven itself in every series it’s contested, and I'm confident that we will perform with the new Tatuus PM-18. I'm looking forward to a great upcoming year.

“I can't thank Juncos Racing and Palo Alto Networks enough for this amazing opportunity.”

Team owner Ricardo Juncos said, “After what Rob (Megennis) showed us at the Chris Griffis Test this past October, I am thrilled to add him to our Pro Mazda driver line-up. This test really tests a driver since everyone is watching, unlike most other tests when you are there without the pressure of others.

“After seeing how he performed under this type of pressure I am very confident he will have a great year in the Pro Mazda series. I want to thank Rob, his family and Palo Alto Networks for their commitment to our team.”
