  • Trackhouse Racing driver Daniel Suárez finished 25th in Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at the Michigan International Speedway.
  • It was a stellar performance, but disappointing finish for both Trackhouse Racing Chevrolet Camaro drivers who combined to lead 62 of 200 laps on Sunday.
  • With 45 laps remaining, Suárez and Ross Chastain ran first and second and it looked like the duo would battle for the victory.
  • The Trackhouse cars pitted together under green and returned to the track a lap down to the leaders who were getting ready for their pit stops.
  • As the Trackhouse drivers were about to pass the leaders and unlap themselves, second-place driver Christopher Bell made contact with Chastain sending his car into the wall and bringing out the caution.
  • The untimely caution dropped both Trackhouse drivers off the lead lap. Suárez received the free pass and restarted 18th.
  • The race ran without caution until the checkered flag.
  • Suárez drove to 13th, but a cut tire in the final laps brought him to pit lane for repairs and left him with a 25th-place finish.
  • Suárez finished second in the second stage and led 33 laps in the final stage.
  • The No. 99 driver started 15th after qualifying on Saturday.
  • The NASCAR Cup Series returns to action Sunday at Richmond (Va.) Raceway.


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

“It was a very disappointing finish for us. I really thought we both had great cars today. I don’t know what happened but that wreck couldn’t come at a worse time. It cost both Ross and I a shot at the victory. My guys gave me a great Worldwide Express Chevrolet today and it was fast.”
