Juan Piedrahita

Whitestown, IN

I began racing when I was 6 years old in Bogota, Colombia, I started racing because since I have memory I always wanted to drive everything that had 4 wheels, when I was growing up in Colombia my racing hero Juan Pablo Montoya was very famous, thanks to his success my mom (After saving for almost a year) agreed to buy me a go kart and pursuit my dream.
My dream has always been to race Indycar and to race in the Indy 500, it hasn't been easy as being from another country Ive had to make a lot of sacrifices in order to live in the US and have a chance at pursuing my dream. The last two years I raced in the Indy Lights series but next year I will be in the Indy 500.
I race because I absolute love driving and everything that has to do with cars, I would anything in order to keep pursuing my dream.
