KBM Inks Mexican Champion For NH Truck Race
Kyle Busch Motorsports announced today that two-time defending NASCAR Mexico Series Champion German Quiroga will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut in this Saturday's "F.W. Webb 175" at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Quiroga has signed a one-race deal to pilot KBM's #51 Toyota Tundra with sponsorship from Telcel, the leading provider of wireless communications services in Mexico. With four races remaining on the 2011 NASCAR Mexico Series schedule, Quiroga currently holds a 110-point lead in his quest for a third-consecutive championship. In 10 races this season, the 31-year old has collected one win, captured two poles and recorded five second-place finishes. In addition to his two Mexico Series championships, the Mexico City native has finished second in the points twice and his 15 career victories rank second in series history.
Quiroga finished 12th in the 2011 NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown at California's Irwindale Speedway in January. In his lone NASCAR Nationwide Series start, he led nine laps and finished 20th in the 2007 Telcel-Motorola Mexico 200 at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City, Mexico. Quiroga's NASCAR resume also includes six NASCAR K&N Pro Series East starts during the 2007 season, including the New England 125 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
