Racing career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Garcia began his professional career in Formula Renault 2000 de America in 2006. He made two A1 Grand Prix starts for A1 Team Mexico that winter and then drove in the British Formula 3 Championship National Class, finishing 7th. In 2008 he drove in Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup, finishing 16th, and Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup where he failed to score.

Indy Lights[edit]

In August 2009 he signed on to make his Indy Lights debut for HVM Racing at Infineon Raceway after being inactive for much of the year.[1] He returned to the team in 2010 and made two late-season road course starts, finishing 6th at Infineon. For 2011 he signed to drive full-time in the series for Jensen MotorSport.[2] However, he left the team and the series after the fourth race of the season, the Freedom 100, with a best finish of eighth. He returned to Indy Lights in 2012 racing with the Jeffrey Mark Motorsports team. Garcia finished 9th in points with a best finish of 7th (twice). He returned to the series in 2013 with Team Moore Racing for ten races, switching to Belardi Auto Racing for the final two races of the season. He finished eighth in points with a best finish of fourth in the season opener at St. Petersburg.
