Quotable: Alexis DeJoria, Driver

We made three really good runs in qualifying. They weren’t spectacular in the 3.80’s, but still good runs getting down the race track in the heat. I’m excited about tomorrow. We’re here at Texas Motorplex, now one of my hometown tracks. We’ll go out there tomorrow, give it our best and hopefully this Patrón Toyota Camry will go some rounds.

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.
