Alexis DeJoria, Driver

Not so great today. We had another first round loss due to another red light. I’ve had two this season, and I’m not happy about it, but anytime I go up against my teammate it’s a battle. They’re a good team, and so are we. I was just trying to get up on that wheel and got there a little too soon.

We’re racing next weekend in Englishtown, N.J., and I’m happy about that. It’s always nice when you’re able to get right back in the seat the following weekend and there’s not much time in between to wallow in the misery of a loss.

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.
