|Quiroga to drive for KBM|
Quiroga will drive the team’s #51 Tundra with primary sponsorship from prepaid wireless provider NET10 beginning at Talladega Superspeedway on Oct. 6, and concluding with the final three stops on the schedule; Nov. 2 at Texas Motor Speedway, Nov. 9 at Phoenix International Raceway and the Nov. 16 season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Quiroga, the only driver in the history of the NASCAR Mexico Series to win multiple championships, captured three consecutive titles from 2009 to 2011 after finishing in the runner-up spot in the final series standings in both 2007 and 2008.
Since the Mexico Series became sanctioned by NASCAR in 2007, Quiroga has collected 16 wins, 52 Top-5 and 60 Top-10 finishes in 70 starts. The 32-year-old posted a 16th-place finish in his Truck Series debut with KBM at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon last September, and finished 26th in the 2011 series finale at Homestead-Miami after losing a lap due to a loose wheel.
"We're excited to have NET10 onboard as a partner and honored that they chose KBM for their first partnership in NASCAR," said KBM General Manager Rick Ren, who will also serve as the crew chief on Quiroga's #51 Tundra. "German showed a lot of promise in his two starts last year and our staff has been working really hard to try and secure the sponsorship needed to get him back in a truck this season.”
