Alexis DeJoria, Driver

Man, we’ve really gotten a handle on this car since Gainesville. It just took a race to figure it out. We’ve got our hot rod back. We made it down the track all four qualifying runs and we were fast in every one. It feels really good and I’m super confident going into tomorrow. I don’t even know who we’ve got in round one, but it doesn’t even matter. I’m just looking forward to race day.

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.
