Start to get to know the name now – Daniel Suarez will make his NASCAR Nationwide Series debut this weekend at Richmond for Joe Gibbs Racing, and he’s getting to be on the radar among NASCAR’s stock of up-and-coming drivers.
Suarez already has four NASCAR touring series wins this season: two from three starts in the NASCAR Toyota Mexico Series, where he’s the points leader, and also two victories in four starts in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, where he’s currently second in points.
Suarez, 22, is a native of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico and one of the NASCAR Next drivers. JGR has a keen eye for young talent so it will be interesting to see how he gets on this weekend.
