NASCAR driver Max Gutierrez and his younger brother, Federico, were involved in a tragic traffic accident Sunday in Mexico and Federico has died, according to multiple media reports.
Max, 20, and Federico, 17, were traveling in a Porsche Boxster near Valle de Bravo, a resort area about 60 miles west of Mexico City, on Sunday when the car collided with a Ford Explorer pickup truck.
Federico, nicknamed “Fico,” made his racing debut in the United States in 2021 in a Late Model race. Fico made his debut in the NASCAR Mexico Challenge Series last season, finishing 11th at Autodromo de Chiapas. He also teamed with this brother Max to compete in the 2019 24 Hours of Mexico and became the youngest driver to do so at age 13.
