The 2017 ARRIS Racing Season in Mexico

From the start, ARRIS Racing has shared a passion for developing young talent in racing, alongside Carlos Slim Domit and Escudería. ARRIS is continuing its support of young Latin American drivers—renewing its sponsorship of Abraham Calderón, who last season won the Freightliner Truck Series in Mexico, and sponsoring 21-year-old Mexican driver Fabián Welter, who is currently Driver 1 in the Telmex® Driver Development Program.

The ARRIS Team scored a historical ‘hat-trick’ in the NASCAR PEAK México Series’ final round at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez. Abraham Calderón sealed two championships in the final weekend’s races (NASCAR PEAK V8 and Freightliner Truck series), and rookie driver Fabián Welter added a NASCAR Challenge title.


NASCAR PEAK – 4th Place; 1st Place Overall

Monterrey’s driver finished in the fourth place and it was more than enough to earn his second title of the series (he also won in 2014). In the truck race, he finished in fourth place to win this championship for second year in a row.

Abraham’s quote: “It is really amazing. I have no words to explain what I feel. We are the champions of NASCAR México and Freightliner Trucks. The boys did a great job not just today, but all the season long. I want to thank ARRIS, God and my family for all the support”.

FABIÁN WELTER (#3 ARRIS-Escudería Telmex)
Fabián Welter had clinched the title in last round at the Puebla race, so Sunday was essentially a ‘victory lap’ for the championship on Sunday, with a fourth place finish in the final round, giving Team ARRIS its third title of the season.

Fabián’s quote:
“I wanted to celebrate with a win, but it doesn’t matter. I’m very happy with the championship. I’d like to thank all the boys in Team ARRIS and Mr. Carlos Slim, CEO of Escudería Telmex Telcel, and team’s director Jimmy Morales. It was a great season”.


Team Mexico

Thank you Jimmy Morales, Abraham Calderon, Fabian Welter, and the whole team for an historic 2017 Season!

Fabian Welter Ruiz

Fabian Welter Ruiz joined the ARRIS Racing team in 2017 and in his inaugural race for ARRIS in Monterrey, Mexico, he won first place in the NASCAR PEAK Challenge!  Clearly, Fabian shows a lot of potential for ARRIS in the #3 car.

Fabian is from Mexico City and started his racing experience with Karting in 2003. In 2010, he began preparing for the Formula VEE 1800 and won Rookie of the Year in 2011.

In 2012 at age 16, Fabian won the first race of the British Formula Ford in the Duratec category in his debut in England. He also won the second race, plus an impressive 4-place overall.

Since then, he has won various accolades including the 2015 NASCAR Stock V6 testing Escuderia Telmex Championship, the 2016 NASCAR Driving for Diversity Program Driver 1 distinction (promoted of Jimmy Morales and Alejandro Suarez), and the 2017 GPI Karting International Race Championship.

Abraham Calderon Cardoza
NASCAR México Toyota Series

Abraham Calderón is in his third season as an ARRIS driver and he opened the 2017 season with a first place finish in the Freightliner Truck Series race in Monterrey, Mexico!  He is also the reigning champ, winning the Freightliner Truck Series as an ARRIS driver in 2016.  Abraham is also currently racing in the ARRIS #2 car in the NASCAR PEAK Mexico V8 Series.

Abraham started racing in the local karting series in his hometown, Monterrey, Mexico, in 1998 when he was 8 years old. In his first season in the Junior I Series, Calderón won first place in three races and third place in three others. The following year, he won the Junior I Series championship.
In 2002, he won the Yamaha Sportsman Championship and the 2002 International Karting Race. After his early successes in various karting series, he moved into the national T4 series in 2005. The following season, he won the T4 national championship.

He joined the NASCAR Mexico Series in 2007, receiving three top 10 awards after a bumpy start. In 2009, Calderón changed teams and improved his record to one top 5 and six top 10 finishes.  Calderón finished in the top 10 in the 2011 season and placed in the top 3 twice, the top 5 twice and the top 10 seven times in the 2012 season.

In 2013, he won the NASCAR Mexico Series race in Phoenix, Arizona, and placed in the top 3 once and the top 10 twice in the second half of the season.  In 2014, Calderón took first in the NASCAR Mexico Toyota Series Championship as a member of the Escuderia Telcel-Telmex team.
