Season summary[edit]

Autódromo Monterrey venue for the kick-off race.

The season began in Monterrey with the Regia 200. 37 drivers registered for the event; however an important absentee was the triple champion Germán Quiroga. Additionally, the most popular driver winner, Jorge Arteaga, left the series. The race was marked by an accident that involved ten cars, which included Homero Richards who abandoned the race as a result. In the final lap, Rubén Rovelo passed Daniel Suárez to take the victory.[9]

In the second race at Autódromo Potosino, Antonio Pérez started in fifth position and took the victory.[10] Also in the race, Homero Richards had to drive the car of his teammate, Javier Razo, due to the breakdown of Richards' car.

In race three at Querétaro, Homero Richards achieved his tenth victory in the NTS in a GWC. The race was run 9 laps in excess. Rogelio López became the leader with a two point of advantage over Daniel Suárez.[11]

Nocturna 200 was the fourth race in the season. Rogelio López took the pole position, and Daniel Suárez ultimately won the race. This was Suárez' first victory in NTS and he reached the number one position in the championship.[12]

In the fifth race, Rubén García, Jr. (son of Rubén García Novoa), took his first pole position.[13] García Jr clocked the track in 39.093 at 115.10 mph and became the youngest pole-sitter in NTS at age of 16.[14] Jorge Goeters won the race in a GWC final. Goeters also took the first place in the championship, 11 points ahead of Suárez.[15]

In the Aguascalientes 240, Antonio Pérez became the first driver to win two races in the season.[16] Suárez came in second and Jorge Goeters finished third. In the championship, Suárez reduced his disadvantage to Goeters to nine points.
