DRIVER

Daniel Suárez

Daniel Suárez, the only Spanish-speaking driver in the NASCAR Cup Series made racing history in 2022 as the first Mexican-born and just fifth foreign-born driver to take the checkers, driving the No. 99 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for Trackhouse Racing.
The 32-year-old driver from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, turned doubters into fans when he claimed this history-making victory at the Toyota Save Mart 350, at Sonoma Raceway. Daniel, no stranger to historic wins, was also the first international champion in the 2016 NASCAR Xfinity Series, as well as the 2017 and 2022 NASCAR All-Star Race Open Winner.
Suárez and girlfriend Julia Piquet were engaged in November 2022. A soccer player since his youth, he is a fan of the Mexican club Tigres UANL.
