Axalta is happy to announce that Stock Car Brasil driver Gabriel Casagrande came in third place in the last race of the season, closing 2018 on a high note. The final race was held on Dec. 9 at Interlagos, Sao Paulo. Casagrande started off in sixth place and moved quickly to fourth before advancing another position.
With the result, Casagrande made it into the Top 10 in the drivers’ championship. After 12 rounds and 21 races, he closed 2018 with 155 points. The young driver showed constant growth and consistency throughout the year.
Since 2017, Casagrande has been a part of Vogel Motorsport. However, as of 2019, he will be representing Voxx Racing. These changes don’t affect his relationships with sponsors, and Axalta will continue to support him. We are excited and look forward to what next year has in store.
