I started in 2003 in karting.
Everything started as a game between my father and me, he was my mechanic.
After my first year in Karts,I changed to a better team and was way more prepared. The result was that I won the championship and moved to the next series. I also won the ticket to the Grand National Event in Las Vegas and finished as the best Mexican Driver in the World Challenge in the Canary Islands.
I had an accident at the end of the race, so I couldn’t continue. For the little experience I had, it was a great result for me.
Like I said everything started as a game and then became more professional.
After karts, I wanted to go to an open wheel series, but I couldn’t find a way. I decided that I was going to follow another line and I raced in a Touring Series, a local series in Monterrey, Mexico, and in the end of my first year I won the Championship.
The next year, I was invited and raced in a national series called T4. In the first year I became the youngest driver to win races and pole positions and was invited to race on a bigger challenge in the follow year: Nascar Mexico.
At Nascar Mexico, I knew I was going to race with drivers with a lot more experience than I could ever imagined and I knew it was going to be a great learning experience for me.
At my first year, I started on a new team, so was a Rookie driver and it was a rookie team and believe it or not we actually fought for the title of Rookie of the Year.
At the middle of that year the Telcel Team offered me a seat on their team and this for sure leveraged my career. In that year, 2010, I won the Rookie of the Year Title, and I started to see that my next step would have to be in another another Nascar Series, the big one, the one in USA.
In 2011 I raced the Toyota All-Star Showdown having a good result and being the best Mexican there. Looking at my race schedules I decided that I could race in USA and Mexico at the same time. So when I received an invitation to race at the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, I didn’t think twice and accepted the challenge. In the first half of the year I had a lot of problems with the team’s car, but at the second half, I decided to switch teams, and became a driver of X Team Racing, which was a new team in 2011 but with a great performance.
I raced the whole year of 2011 in Mexico and USA and I do believe it was a year of getting experience and learning.
For 2012, I am ready to become one of the top racing drivers of the series and hopefully will be fighting for the championship with my team!
