Alexis DeJoria, Driver

We made four consistent runs in qualifying and it feels like another good race weekend for us. We just keep getting better. I don’t know what the conditions will be tomorrow, but we’re sitting in the No. 2 spot and that’s always a good day. We’re going to go out tomorrow, charge hard, and hopefully get those round wins that we desperately need.

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.
