Quotable: Alexis DeJoria, Driver

We definitely turned it around on race day, like we usually do. We made two really good runs in our Patrón Toyota Camry but unfortunately; we lost in the second round.

We were hoping to get a win at one of these back-to-back races, but unfortunately, we didn’t take home the prize this weekend. On the bright side, we do have a good hot weather tune-up so we feel pretty good. It wasn’t a great weekend, but we made progress.

We have about a week and a half off until Chicago, and we’ll just get back up on the horse and get ready for the next race.

About Tequila Patrón

From hand-harvesting the highest-quality 100 percent Weber Blue Agave, to the traditional, time-honored distillation process and individual labeling, numbering, and inspection of each bottle, Patrón tequila is crafted with meticulous precision and care. Though Patrón has grown to become one of the most-recognized and respected luxury spirits brands in the world, it is still exclusively produced in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, in the same small batches and with the same commitment to quality and craftsmanship.
