Alexis DeJoria, Driver

We didn’t qualify that well on the board here in Norwalk, but you’ve just got to go out there and qualify and you never know what’s going to happen on Sunday. Look at Bristol- we qualified just about the same last weekend and we ended up going to the semis.  

Our Patrón Toyota Camry made it down the track twice in the heat this weekend and we got some good runs and good information going into race day. We have a solid hot weather tune-up, and I’m excited to race tomorrow.

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.
