MEXICO CITY – Hugo Oliveras was able to hold off Rogelio López to win the Mexico Fest 200 on Sunday in NASCAR Toyota Series action at Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez.
After starting the race in the eighth position Oliveras, out of Mexico City, was able to work his No. 11 Monster Energy Drink/Bosch Toyota past race leader López on a late restart to pick up his first win since June 2009 at Querétaro, Mexico. López was forced to settle for a runner-up finish.
Abraham Calderón picked up his second top-five finish of the 2012 campaign with a third-place finish. Homero Richards and Daniel Suárez, who started the race on the front row, finished fourth and fifth, respectively.
Patrick Goeters, Irwin Vences, José Luis Ramírez, Juan Carlos Blum and Elliot Van Rankin closed out the top-10 finishers on the day.
Jorge Goeters struggled to a 22nd-place finish and surrendered the season’s points lead to Suárez and fell to third. Richards moved into second place.
Prior to the race, Jorge Mocezuma was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award. The 90-year-old is a former competitor and later journalist for motorsports in Mexico.
