Alexis DeJoria, Driver

These last couple of days have been a less than stellar start for us here at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park, but we won here two years ago and I’m just going to go out there tomorrow and hope for the best. We have a run under our belt and we have made really good runs down this track before, so we’re going to work off of that.

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.
