They claim that it's because of an ex venado but if u notice, a bunch of "popis" have that sticker on their vehicle. But I heard u pay a quota and your protected if u have the 55.

They get the stickers from the number 55 NASCAR race car. 55 was worn by a member of Los Venados football team. He was killed 2 1/2 years ago in a case of mistaken identity. His number is placed on vehicles to commemorate his life and the tragic way in which he died. That's about it.

So if the #55 bumper sticker is not a cartel logo, then what does it stand for?

This has been answered multiple times. It was the jersey number of a kid that was kidnapped and presumably killed by mistake a couple of years ago.

The 55 is the number that the young man in Piedras Negras that was kidnapped and murdered used on the Venados team. He is the grandson to the owner of the SAN GAR stores. He was kidnapped while he was visiting a family in Piedras. The bad guys came for the family and they took him also. His name was Gerardo Sanchez Heath.

I work at a major employment office in EP and most of my fellow co-workers are unaware of the Heath case/meaning of #55 bumper sticker.
