Three-time NASCAR Mexico Series champion German Quiroga will run four races in the NASCAR Truck Series this season with Kyle Busch Motorsports beginning with the Oct. 6 race at Talladega, Ala.
KBM will also field the the No. 51 Toyota with
sponsorship from NET10 in the final three races of the season at Texas, Phoenix
and Homestead, Fla.
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 both 2007 and 2008. After
the Mexico Series became officially sanctioned by NASCAR in 2007, the talented
wheelman collected 16 wins, 52 top-five and 60 top-10 finishes over 70 starts.
The 32-year-old finished 16th in his Truck Series debut with KBM at
New Hampshire last September, and then finished 26th - after losing
a lap due to a loose wheel - in the 2011 series finale at Homestead. In 2007,
the Mexico City native led 12 laps in his lone Nationwide Series start before
being relegated to a 28th-place finish at his home-country track,
Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.
