López won the 2006 Desafío Corona (now NASCAR Toyota Series) championship, and went to the United States to drive the No. 03 Telmex/Lucas Oil Dodge in the NASCAR Grand National Division, Busch East Series for the 2007 season.
He got his first win in the Busch East Series during his rookie season, winning on July 21, 2007, at the Music City Motorplex in Nashville. He eventually went on to finish 7th in the standings with one win, five top-5 finishes, and six top-10 finishes.
He is most famous for his 2006 blow-over in the NASCAR West Series at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. While racing with Johnny Borneman, the two made contact coming out of turn 2. Lopez's car went airborne and flipped over. His car slid on its roof for several hundred feet before flipping over back onto the wheels. Lopez was uninjured and walked away from the incident.
