Itís official. News just came in that Triple Seven Racing owner/driver Ray Piloto and driver Rico Apolinar will be the newest driving duo to enter the Nitto Tires United States Touring Car Championship. Jim Pierce of Pierce Motorsports has confirmed their professional partnership for the USTCC 2014 season. Piloto and Apolinar will be racing Pierce Motorsportís Hyundai Veloster for the full USTCC schedule. Triple Seven Racing is the only Latin-American race team comprised of drivers Ray Piloto and Rico Apolinar. Their mission is to educate and inspire young Latin-Americans with a unique approach through racing and financial education in order to empower youth to own their economic success. Ray Piloto has won many rally championships but has yet to prove himself as a road racing driver. ďIím super excited to race in the USTCC, however I know thereís going to be a huge learning curveĒ, explains Piloto. Rico Apolinar is a driving instructor with years of teaching, but only amateur race experience. This Triple Seven Race team has many challenges ahead but they are confident they will adapt quickly and begin moving up the leader board throughout the year. Jim Pierce of Pierce Motorsports has been building parts for the new Hyundai Veloster and is anxious to showcase his products in the USTCC. We look forward to seeing the transition from dirt to tarmac from the Triple Seven Racing team.
