The Budweiser Girls at Fontana 1997 - not a match for the Tecate Girls!

The Tecate Girls shade their delicate skin from the sun's harmful rays at Fontana 1998.

This was the first time we'd seen them at a race all season.

The Tecate Girls are back at Long Beach 1999 to support Adrian Fernandez. Even though he has moved to Patrick Racing, and this weekend is driving his new Swift chassis for the first time, he has retained the Tecate sponsorship.

Vancouver 1999

Different girls for Vancouver. Is this because they're Canadian?

My first photos of Year 2000 Tecate Girls. This is Chicago at the Target Grand Prix on July 29.

At Chicago the Girls were enjoying getting involved in the filming for Sylvester Stallone's movie "Driven".

But generally, they were just hanging out and having a good time while Adrian qualified a lowly 19th and finished tenth.

Fashion note: This year the Girls have been wearing leather pants, instead of the stretchy tights and mini-skirts of previous seasons. The weather can be very warm at a lot of the races, so this must be pretty uncomfortable at times. Check out the chunky shoes too!

The Tecate Girls were back at the 2003 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Let's hope we see more of them throughout the year!

The girls were on hand for Adrian Fernandez's first win as an owner-driver at the 2003 G. I. Joe's 200 Grand Prix of Monterey, an event heavily sponsored by Tecate.

Finally, these are the original Tecate Girls. The photo was taken in 1996, although they had worked together the previous season too. From left to right they are Jenn, Gabriela, Jody and Vanessa, with Gabriela's father in the middle.

Many thanks to Gabby for providing the photo!
