Brazilian Max Wilson, who debuted in the FedEx Championship Series this weekend with his team Arciero Brooke Racing, retired early in the Monterrey Grand Prix after he made contact with the outside wall, on the last turn of the 2.104-mile circuit of Fundidora Park, in Monterrey, Mexico.

"I lost it (the car) in the last turn, when I was following Nicolas Minassian. I was trying to overtake him because I was much quicker than him, but I thought: 'on the last turn I will be quicker' and I was caught on the dirt part of the track. I just lost it. That was it," said Max Wilson.

"The car had a punctured left side radiator, in turn pouring water on the rear tire. This caused the car spin in Turn-12. Max (Wilson) did a very good job the whole weekend. The crew and everybody in the team highly commend him for his actions. He demonstrated that he can go fast, mainly in the warm-up session... We will be all right. We will be there in Long Beach," Barry Brooke, President of Arciero Brooke Racing.

Max was 8th in the warm-up session with a lap of 1'17.457 at 97.788 Mph.
