Alexis DeJoria, Driver

One good thing I can take away from today is that I completely redeemed myself from last weekend. I got him off of the line (0.079-second reaction time vs. Beckman’s 0.087), which always makes me feel good. Any time you go up against Jack, you know he’ll likely have a really good reaction time, so any time I can get out there in front a little bit is a good thing.

Man, it was a close race. My Patrón Toyota Camry was a handful but I’ve got to give it up to my guys- Tommy [DeLago], Glen [Huszar], and the crew- for getting us down that racetrack. We made a solid run. There was a lot of tire smoking going on in front of me. We made a very good pass- fourth quickest of the session- but it just wasn’t our day today. Luckily, we get to go to Bristol in just a few days, and I get to do it all over again.

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.
