DF1 Racing signed with Justin Kunz and Alain Mosqueron for the 2020 NASCAR Whelen Euro Series season. While the experienced German will step up in the EuroNASCAR PRO championship, the Frenchman will defend the EuroNASCAR Club Challenge title he won in 2019.
“A top-10 finish in 2020 should be possible and a top-5 spot would be awesome,” said Kunz, who’s a regular driver in NWES since 2016, boasting 48 EuroNASCAR 2 and eleven EuroNASCAR PRO starts. This makes him one of the most experienced drivers on the grid of the official European NASCAR series.
Kunz is already looking forward to the EuroNASCAR Finals in 2020 that will take place on his home track, the Hockenheimring, on October 17-18. It will be the first time for the iconic German track to host the championship deciding races since joining the NWES calender in 2017.
“It’s a highlight for me, my supporters and sponsors to finish the season right at my doorstep. I hope to score some good results during the Finals in Hockenheim. I want to thank everybody at the Hockenheimring for the great partnership as well. With the help of DF1 Racing, I will do all my best to promote this great race track and to spread the NASCAR virus in Germany,” said Kunz.
Mosqueron will defend his EuroNASCAR Club Challenge title with the Austrian team. In 2019, the Frenchman was the most consistent driver in the regularity-based challenge. Mosqueron took over first place in the point standings during the very last weekend of the season in Zolder and crowned himself champion for the first time in his career.
Now the Frenchman is chasing a back-to-back win in the EuroNASCAR Club Challenge and plans to make at least one start in the EuroNASCAR 2 championship.
“I’m quite happy to be a DF1 Racing tiger again next year,” he said. “My family and myself, we felt very comfortable with the DF1 Team last season and I’m pretty sure that the team will provide me a great Euro NASCAR car again. My aim is to keep growing my NASCAR career and become a fixed part of the 2021 EuroNASCAR 2 grid.”
