Fort Worth, Texas, November 5, 2016.- The visit to Texas Motor Speedway deparó Daniel Suarez fifth, which allowed him to stay alone in the lead in the eight round of the NASCAR Chase Xfinity Series, ending the next week in Phoenix.
In the second of three tests that make up this round of eight drivers, of which only four advance to the grand finale in Homestead, scheduled for November 19, Daniel had a fairly sober performance, without putting a wheel out of place, and always negotiating towards the goal is to achieve the best possible position.
During the 200 laps agreed to oval 1.5 miles (2.41 kilometers), the pilot Telcel remained consistently in the top-10, with some caution by electrical problems, and it was not until the latter part when he threw all the meat on spit and managed to get to fifth place.
The result of this Saturday at the Texas oval Daniel placed on top with 3,000 75 points, just one ahead of Elliott Sadler, who arrived just behind the Mexican, in sixth place. The victory went to Kyle Larson, followed by Brad Keselowski, who had dominated much of the competition, and Kevin Harvick, all stellar American NASCAR drivers.
Now it only remains the definition of this phase next week in Phoenix oval, giving way to the grand finale in Homestead with the four best riders of the season.
Daniel Suarez (Toyota Camry # 19 ARRIS):
"Shortly before half of the race I had a problem with the battery; I know I have a second battery, but did not know how much we were going to endure. Just we try to keep driving and controlling the tire wear. Luckily it was a cool day and the temperature was not a factor. I'm happy with the result ... I think we're in a good position, the word comfort can not be used, we are in advantage over the other seven drivers, but that does not mean something is written. "
