Germán Quiroga Finishes 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Sixth in Driver Points

Germán Quiroga and the No. 77 OtterBox Toyota Tundra team arrived at Homestead-Miami Speedway eager to end the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on a high note. The team was quick during the first practice session, finishing fifth, but worked to find speed during the second practice. The team returned to the Homestead, Florida race track for the final round of knock-out qualifying of the season. The No. 77 team advanced to the second round of qualifying where they qualified in the 22nd position for the NASCAR 200. When the green flag was displayed at the 1.5-mile race track, Quiroga commented to his crew chief that he was battling a loose-handling Toyota Tundra. The crew worked hard during scheduled pits stops throughout the race to improve the handling, making wedge and track bar adjustments. Quiroga found himself as high as ninth during the race, but was marked in the 15th-position when the checkered flag was displayed. The Mexico City native finished the season sixth in the driver points standings, with three top-five and 10 top-10 finishes. This marks the highest finish for a Latin American driver in a national series of NASCAR.
