SAN CLEMENTE, CA, January 8, 2012 – Azuñia Tequila’s Race Team is ready to take on the untamed Baja desert with two race cars entering into the 2013 NORRA Mexican 1000. Azunia’s race car the Snortin Nortin dominated the vintage class for two consecutive years and the team is looking to make that win a triple and re-introduce a fan favorite from early Mint 400 and Baja racing years the “57 Chevy”. The “57 Chevy” was formerly owned and raced by Larry Schwacofer.
“The Snortin Nortin and the 57 Chevy will be going into a head-to-head battle in the 2013 NORRA race,” said Jim Riley, driver of record of Snortin Nortin and CEO of Azuñia Tequila. “Rick “Hurricane” Johnson and I have been racing on the same team for a long time. This will be exciting to compete in different race cars in the same class on the Azuñia Tequila Race Team.”
