Nascar and Peak have found an agreement to bring back the Mexican stock cars series next year. In fact, the radiator and cooling system company will be the title sponsor of the series.

Peak is already involved in NASCAR world as it is a secondary sponsor of Sprint Cup driver Clint Bowyer’s Chevrolet (two races as a primary sponsor). It is also a partner of the Sprint Cup Series and the title sponsor of the NASCAR’s eSport partner, iRacing.com.

The Mexican series kicks off already this year

There will be an exhibition race December the 3rd and 4th in Mexico City. The championship will start next year with a scheduled that is yet to be announced.

“this is huge for us. When you look at the talent that is coming out of Mexico, we felt like we were just on the cusp of being really successful” Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR 's executive vice-president,stated to motorsport.com.

Through the editions, the Mexico Series helped young drivers to get a place in the major NASCAR series, especially the Xfinity Series. An example of that is Daniel Suarez, the first Mexican driver to win a NASCAR national race, earlier this season.

Sprint Cup Series: who is in trouble?

This Sunday, the Sprint Cup drivers will race at Talladega Superspeedway for the last round of 12. The previous races in Charlotte and Kansas had shaken up the grid a little bit. Let’s see who is in and who is in trouble.

The two former Sprint Cup Champions, Jimmy Johnson and Kevin Harvick, have already booked a ticket for the next round thanks to the wins in Charlotte and in Kansas, the last two weeks.

Alongside them Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards are in a good spot too. The two drivers of Joe Gibbs Racing showed a strong pace in Kansas as Edward was the favourite for the win until the last caution.

The other driver of Gibbs’ Toyota, Matt Kenseth, is in second position on the standings.

The driver of the Monster Energy's Chevrolet Kurt Busch, Truex Jr., Logano, Austin Dillon and Hamlin are all in a borderline situation where, in The unpredictable race of the year, everything can happen. The last two drivers, Keselowksy and Elliot, in the Chase grid are in bad situation.

The 2012 Sprint champion finished 41th in Kansas after an accident for a contact with his teammate Hamlin. The statistics are good with him, though. In Talladega, he’s got the most wins and second best average finish. Meanwhile, the young driver of Chevrolet No.24 had suffered a pair of tire rubs and multiple scrapes of the wall last Sunday. This costed him the last spot in the Chase grid with a 25-points gap from the cut-off line.
