SAN LUIS POTOSÍ, Mexico - As we get closer to a new NASCAR Toyota Series season, news from the teams that make up the series begin to trickle in. This is the case for Canel's Racing which announced on Thursday the addition of well-known international driver Mario Domínguez to their ranks.
Domínguez, affectionately known as Super Mario, will pilot the No. 18 Canel's/Scotiabank/Mazda/Axalta during the upcoming season, his first venture into stock car racing.
Technical Director for Canel's Racing, Ramiro Fidalgo, introduced Domínguez to media at Thursday's announcement.
“The team has been working very diligently to improve all aspects of our racing, including our drivers," Fidalgo said. "After discussing it with the leaders of the team, we are proud to announce the arrival of Mario Domínguez, who is without a doubt a driver that will always give you 100%, adapts very quickly to his race cars and someone I worked with in years past when he ran the Indy Lights circuit."
“It's our job to do everything we can to get him up to speed on racing NASCAR," Fidalgo continued, "and get him in position to battle for the top spots in the not too distant future. His arrival has already motivated all the other team members and on behalf of Canel's Racing and our sponsors I am pleased to welcome Mario to our team, and we hope he has a great season with us."
In addition Domínguez, Canel's Racing also welcomed a new sponsor for 2014.
"Along with Mario, one of the best paint brands in the world, AXALTA, joins our team as it continues to grow here in Mexico," said Fidalgo. "We hope that it is an interesting and long-term partnership for the brand, and we'll do everything we can to get the Canel's/Scotiabank/Mazda/Axalta cars in Victory Lane this year."
With a new driver and sponsor in tow, the team from San Luis Potosí is beginning to take shape as it prepares for the upcoming Toyota Series season.
