  • Trackhouse Racing driver Daniel Suárez finished 18th in Sunday’s 500-lap NASCAR Cup Series race at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway.
  • Tire strategy dominated the race as all 36 drivers and teams struggled to make a set of tires last more than a handful of laps on the half-mile concrete track.
  • Suárez ran just outside the top 10 most of the race, but couldn’t push to the front of the field.
  • Suárez started 28th Sunday and both Trackhouse Racing drivers struggled early as tire wear exceeded expectations. Suárez climbed to 17th by the end of the first stage.
  • Drivers slowed their speeds and tried to make the tires last longer in the second stage. Suárez finished the second stage in 17th.
  • The next Cup Series race is on Sunday at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.


Daniel Suárez, driver of the No. 99 Jockey Chevrolet Camaro for Trackhouse Racing:

“That was a strange day. I don’t think we have ever done a race like this. We just tried to manage tires. I couldn’t push too hard. We made a lot of changes today to our Jockey Chevrolet, but our tires just kept going away.”
