German Quiroga: Red Horse Racing Bristol Motor Speedway Team Advance
HIGH BANKS, HIGH EXPECTATIONS: NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Rookie of the Year contender Germán Quiroga looks forward to every new challenge the 2013 season brings him. He is especially anxious for the UNOH 200 at Bristol Motor Speedway. The No. 77 NET10 Wireless driver has captured eight wins on tracks smaller than one mile in length during his reign in the NASCAR Mexico Series and has no doubt that his Toyota Tundra will be fast as he makes his debut at the World's Fastest Half-Mile.
NET10 WIRELESS®: NET10 Wireless will be on board the No. 77 Toyota Tundra this weekend at the World's Fastest Half Mile. Quiroga has competed in nine races this season with NET10 Wireless as primary sponsor. The no contract cell phone leader will continue its support as primary or associate sponsor for the remainder of the season. For more information on NET10 Wireless, visit www.NET10Wireless.com.
CHASSIS HISTORY: Germán Quiroga will unload Chassis No. 014 this week at Bristol Motor Speedway. The chassis most recently raced at Kentucky Speedway where the No. 77 Toyota Tundra team started and finished in the eighth position. The chassis made its racing debut earlier this year at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
REARVIEW MIRROR - MICHIGAN: Germán Quiroga welcomed back NET10 Wireless as primary sponsor on his No. 77 Toyota Tundra at Michigan International Speedway. Quiroga qualified 16th for the National Guard 200 and found himself racing for position inside the top-10 for the first three quarters of the race. It was lap 76 when Quiroga spun down the backstretch and made contact with the wall. Quiroga finished 19th and remains 14th in the driver point standings.
Germán Quiroga on Bristol Motor Speedway:
Has Timothy Peters given you the secret to getting around Bristol Motor Speedway?
"Part of the success that we are having right now with our No. 77 NET10 Wireless Tundra comes from all the things that Red Horse Racing has established. Timothy (Peters) is very talented and hopefully he is going to give me good advice once we get to the track. I know Red Horse Racing has good data for the track and hopefully things go our way and we collect a one-two-three finish for Red Horse Racing.
What has been the most memorable part of your season thus far?
"I would say my third-place finish at Texas. It opened many doors and gave me a lot of opportunities. It was my best result on track and the best results for a Mexican in a National division of NASCAR. It also brought OtterBox on board our No. 77 Toyota team and I am very proud and happy with the experience. Hopefully we will have a win soon in the second part of the season. I want to make things happen and start finishing consistently in the top-10. Our goal is to finish in the top-10 in the driver championship."
