3 AMIGOS NAMED OFFICIAL TEQUILA OF PIR
Partnership to debut at K&N Pro Series West in Phoenix on Nov. 13
Phoenix International Raceway President Bryan R. Sperber recently announced 3 Amigos Tequila as the Official Tequila of PIR. In addition, 3 Amigos will sponsor the season finale for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West in Phoenix on Nov. 13 – the 3 Amigos Tequila 125.
“3 Amigos Tequila is a quality product that’s all about good times and fun – making it a perfect match with Phoenix International Raceway and NASCAR fans,” Sperber said. “The product’s local roots make our new partnership even more exciting.”
Known as “Your Arizona Family Tequila,” 3 Amigos Tequila was founded by Arizona resident Santiago Gonzalez and his family in 2007. The product is made from agave grown at his family's farm in Mexico. The tequila is distilled and bottled in Mexico before being brought to the United States for distribution.
J. Smoke Wallin, Chairman & CEO of Pelican Brands and Chairman of The Paddington Corporation – the global brand manager for 3 Amigos – echoed Sperber’s excitement about the new partnership.
“3 Amigos Tequila is an amazing, 100 percent agave, hand-crafted tequila that can go head-to-head with Patron and Don Julio and is uniquely priced to give amazing value to our consumers,” Wallin said. “We are very excited to announce the 3 Amigos’ partnership with Phoenix International Raceway and NASCAR. This sport has the greatest fans and we know they will enjoy getting to know 3 Amigos as we expand our distribution nationwide.”
The 3 Amigos Tequila 125 – a race that will be part of double-header action at PIR on Nov. 13, following the NASCAR Nationwide Series WYPALL* 200 – will offer race fans unprecedented West Series garage access. Teams from the K&N Pro Series West will qualify for the 3 Amigos Tequila 125 on Thursday, Nov. 11. After qualifying, the entire West Series garage will move into PIR’s interactive midway for the West Series Garage Open House from 12-5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 12.
