Quotable: Alexis DeJoria, Driver

We struggled here a little bit in qualifying. We didn’t have the runs to make it into the top half of the field. Thankfully in our last qualifying session we managed to get our Patrón Toyota Camry down that troublesome right lane, so we definitely feel better about going into tomorrow. We’ve done well at this track in the past, so hopefully Lady Luck will be on our side tomorrow because we definitely need to go some rounds on 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.
