Set to make his second debut early in the season in the Truck Series, Gutiérrez will be looking to improve on his debut at Charlotte (NC) Motor Speedway and earn 20th place under the Nashville lights before returning to his native Mexico.
On Sunday, he will compete in the NASCAR Mexico Series at the Cajititlan International Trioval where Gutiérrez’s younger brother Fico Gutiérrez also races at the Jalisco Raceway, Mexico, but in the developmental NASCAR Challenge Series class.
“This weekend is probably one of the most important racing holidays of my life,” Gutierrez said. “A lot of travel, a lot of racing but an excellent opportunity to compete for strong finishes in both races and I am so thankful.
“I am excited to compete at a new venue on the Nashville Superspeedway with AM Racing and build on what we started at Charlotte Motor Speedway and continue to progress through my limited schedule as we build a platform for the future.”
Gutiérrez admits that his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at Charlotte Motor Speedway last month had challenges, but his commitment to overcoming adversity is something the rookie driver knows he will continue to face and conquer with more time on the track to come.
The start of the 2022 Gutiérrez Truck Series will be supported by a roster of his longtime supporters, not only in the ARCA competition but throughout his racing career in his home country of Mexico.
