Alexis DeJoria, Driver

There’s really not much to say about today. Both our team and the DHL team are going to stay in St Louis and test on Monday. We’ll get a little head start prior to Reading. We definitely need to adjust a few things and work on getting better. We need at least a first round win at this next race. We’ve got the runs to do it. I know we can do it; we’re a good team. Obviously the door is pretty much closed for the Championship but we definitely can move up spots and races. There are still four races left to win. 

NHRA Countdown to the Championship Points Standing:

2068 points, ranked 10th (-205)

Trails ninth ranked Tim Wilkerson by 76 points


2036 points, ranked 10th

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.
