Andres Perez, a full-time competitor in the ARCA Menards Series for REV Racing, has signed with Spire Motorsports to make his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut at WWT Raceway.

The 19-year-old racer, who currently leads the point standings in the ARCA Menards Series, will pilot the No. 7 Chevrolet Silverado, an entry that has visited Victory Lane twice this season with two-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Busch.

Herdez Brand, Wholly Guacamole, Doña Maria, and Telcel will all be featured onboard Perez’s bright green and yellow No. 7 Chevrolet Silverado for his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut.

“I am very thankful and excited for the opportunity to make my NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut with a team like Spire Motorsports, driving the No. 7 Chevrolet at World Wide Technology Raceway, said Perez.

“Having Herdez Brand involved in the project makes it even better, especially with all the racing background Herdez has in both USA and Mexico and even in my dad’s racing career. That gives me extra motivation to represent my partners, team, and country as best as I can. I’m fully committed to making this chance count and I’m really looking forward to the race.”

A native of Mexico City, Mexico, Perez began racing karts when he was 11 years old before transitioning to L-A Formula 4 and the NASCAR Mexico Trucks competition. Perez is the 2022 NASCAR Mexico Challenge Series Champion and has 26 ARCA Menards Series starts on his resume.

“Andres Perez is a very capable young driver and we’re looking forward to seeing how he does behind the wheel of Spire Motorsports No. 7 Chevrolet Silverado,” said Spire Motorsports president Doug Duchardt.

“This is an exciting opportunity for Spire Motorsports to work with a rising star in NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity Program and we think Andres has shown the potential to take the next logical step in the progression of his career. He’ll have the benefit of Brian Pattie calling the shots and a veteran team behind him so we’re confident he’s going to have everything he needs to make the most of the opportunity.”

Perez joins a laundry list of drivers to pilot the No. 7 Chevrolet Silverado this season, including Kyle Busch, Sammy Smith, Connor Mosack, Connor Zilisch, and Corey LaJoie.
