Felipe Baptista is now a Texaco driver

Young driver Felipe Baptista changed teams and will be at Crown Racing with the support of Texaco. At just 20 years old, the driver will be making his third season in the Stock Car Pro Series. The combination of young talent, strong sponsor and champion team could have great results on the track this season.

“Being able to represent Texaco Racing for me is extremely gratifying. A giant and recognized brand, which has been in Stock Car for years. I am very proud and honored by this partnership. I know the great importance of this step”, said Baptista.

The Crown Racing Team continues to be led by William Lube, who won the Stock Car titles in 2015, with Marcos Gomes, and 2016, with Felipe Fraga. Texaco, which in recent years has stamped his colors on Tony Kanaan's car – who recently announced that he will not be on the grid –, is betting on the young driver to win again.

“Texaco has a winning history in the category and motorsport is truly in the brand’s DNA. To continue our trajectory, presence and tradition in the category, in 2024 we decided to seek new directions, with a new driver and team. This new journey bringing the young and promising driver Felipe Baptista and be in a team led by William Lube is a combination that we really believe in”, comments Paulo Gomes, Marketing Director at Texaco.

The 2024 Stock Car season starts on April 3rd, in Goiânia. There will be 12 stages in 2024, including Argentina and Uruguay.
