German Quiroga Red Horse Racing Martinsville Speedway Post Race Report

Germán Quiroga came to Martinsville Speedway with some experience under his belt having qualified fifth in his debut at the 0.526-mile speedway in the spring. The driver of the No. 77 OtterBox/NET10 Wireless Toyota Tundra qualified in the sixth position. Quiroga battled loose conditions in the early stages of the Kroger 200 but was battling hard for position inside the top-15.

It was the restart on lap 150 where Quiroga switched lanes before the start-, finish line and was penalized by NASCAR with a pass thru penalty on pit road. As the three-time Mexico Series champion always does, he battled back from the punishment earning his lap back after another caution flag was displayed. The No. 77 OtterBox/NET10 Wireless team gave the driver fresh tires, and Quiroga demonstrated his talent as a real wheelman, managing to work his way back to finish seventh.

 

Germán Quiroga talks about his race at Martinsville Speedway:

"It was going pretty well at the beginning. We were loose in, loose off. The No. 77 OtterBox/NET10 Wireless was good, and fast. I was very happy with the setup and my pit crew did a great job today. We were good, then I made a mistake by changing lanes on the restart. We got penalized and lost a lap but recovered. With 25 laps to go we battled from 21st to finish seventh. Let's keep going to make the first win happen for a Mexican in NASCAR."
