Everything is ready to start the sixth date of Mexican motorsport at the Autodromo
The pilots are ready. Today the Queretaro oval will light up for the sixth date of the Nascar Mexico Series. Brothers Max and Federico Gutiérrez indicated that they hope to toast themselves on the track so that the fans enjoy.
“We are very happy to return to Querétaro, we will try to do things well to keep up,” shared the current 2020 champion, Max Gutiérrez, from the Telmex team.
The 18-year-old young driver recalled with joy that Querétaro was where he began to drive manual cars. He assured that it is one of his favorite tracks where he could also boost his title from last year.
“I started doing this at the age of three, from that age I was put on karts, I didn’t speak, but I was already driving, that’s where I fell in love with this sport,” he recalled nostalgically.
This 2021 is his fifth year in Nascar, while 12 months ago he was crowned in the ‘challenge’ and achieved the rookie championship.
“From the age of 13 I understood that I wanted to dedicate myself to this, my family always supported me and that was fundamental,” he commented.
Max says that in his life he has had to make many sacrifices, but the result has been gratifying.
Gutiérrez debuted last year at Nascar USA, something that has given him a lot of experience and knowledge. “This year we want to go for the rookie of the year championship on the Peak. I would like to be in the top 5 in the United States and in three or five years to be in the stellar category there ”.
At the moment, Max Gutiérrez is in the fourth position in the championship with 183 points. For him, it is essential to get good classification and climb positions.
Youth and speed
The youngest of the brothers, Federico ‘Fico’ Gutiérrez, is 14 years old and already stands out in the ‘trucks’ competition of Nascar Mexico.
“Querétaro is a track that we like a lot, I think it will go very well for me, I am very happy to be here,” he said.
