  • Trackhouse Racing driver Daniel Suárez finished 23rd in Sunday’s 300-mile race at World Wide Technology Raceway near St. Louis.

  • Suárez slowly worked his way up to 27th by the end of stage 1.
  • Suárez continued his march to the front using good pit strategy and an improved handling car to climb into the top-10 before finishing Stage 2 in seventh.
