One championship is great. The second is more rewarding. Gaining the elusive ‘three-peat’ is the measure of true excellence in sports.

Guiding Jorge Goeters to the 2012 NASCAR Mexico Toyota Series championship gives crew chief Ramiro Fidalgo that illustrious third crown. Fidalgo was behind Goeters’ first title run in 2005 and pulled the strings for Rafael Martínez in his 2007 championship.

Fidalgo has been a mainstay with the Canel’s Racing team since the beginning. Their professionalism, determination and success can be traced to a single figure – Fidalgo.

The familiar blue and yellow cars of Canel’s Racing are always exquisitely prepared – a source of great pride for Fidalgo. Image is as important as performance for the Canel’s team. Everything from the team hauler to the pit boxes to the cars has a first-class appearance.

Beyond looking good, the Canel’s cars perform well, too, with the veteran Fidalgo calling the shots. Goeters’ 13 career wins ranks fourth all-time in the series and has finished inside the top 10 in points in each of the last six seasons.

Widely respected in the garage, Fidalgo-led teams are always a threat to win races, and have accounted for a third of the series titles in nine seasons.
