Germán Quiroga, driver of Red Horse Racing's No. 77 Net10 Wireless/OttterBox Toyota Tundra, will appear as a special guest commentator for the FOX Deportes broadcasts of this weekend’s NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series events at Auto Club Speedway. The three-time NASCAR Mexico Toyota Series champion will join Tony Rivera and Diego Mejia in the booth at the Fontana, California-based track on March 22 and 23.
Quiroga is the only driver in Mexico Toyota Series' history to capture three consecutive championship titles (2009, 2010 and 2011). In 2012 the Mexico City native made the move to the United States, and is on track to make his mark as a Hispanic in the top levels of NASCAR. Quiroga kicked off his second full season of competition in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and with Red Horse Racing in February with a Top-10 finish in the season-opener at Daytona International Speedway. In his 2013 rookie season, he claimed two Top-5 and six Top-10 finishes, as well as a pole award at Iowa Speedway, becoming the first Mexican-born driver to earn the honor on an oval race track in NASCAR's three premier series.
The Camping World Series driver recently spent time in the broadcast booth with Deportes Telemundo at Phoenix International Raceway, where he contributed to the telecast of the Mexico Toyota Series season opening Toyota 120.
The Sprint Cup Series Auto Club 400 is scheduled to begin on Sunday, March 23 at 3 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time and will be broadcast on FOX and FOX Deportes. The Nationwide Series race starts Saturday, March 22 at 5 p.m. EDT and can be seen on ESPN and FOX Deportes.
