Suarez Set For Talladega Truck Debut

Win-Tron Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing announced today that Monterrey, Mexico native Daniel Suarez will drive the No. 35 ARRIS Toyota Tundra in next weekend’s Freds’ 250 powered by Coca-Cola at Talladega Superspeedway. 

Suarez, currently competing full time for Escuderia TELMEX in the NASCAR Mexico Toyota Series, will use his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut to prepare for restrictor-plate racing, ahead of his upcoming full-time campaign in the NASCAR XFINITY Series next year. Suarez, a product of the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program, will also make select starts in the NCWTS in 2015.  

The former NASCAR Next member has spent time this season in both the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and the NASCAR Nationwide Series. Suarez won the first two NASCAR K&N Pro Series East events this season driving the No. 6 Toyota Camry for Rev Racing.  

Additionally, the 22-year old made his debut in the NASCAR Nationwide Series in May at Richmond International Raceway, driving the No. 20 Silent Circle/Telcel Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing. Most recently, Suarez made his intermediate track debut at Kentucky Speedway in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, where he finished fifth, driving the No. 66 ARRIS Toyota Camry for Venturini Motorsports. 

“We’re ecstatic to establish this partnership with Daniel and Joe Gibbs Racing for Talladega,” said Win-Tron Racing co-owner Nate Thiesse. “Daniel firmly represents everything that Win-Tron Racing is made of and we feel that he’ll excel in his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut.”  

Kevin Cywinski, Thiesse’s partner at Win-Tron Racing echoed his sentiments, saying, “This is a big opportunity for us at Win-Tron Racing. Daniel is a talented race car driver and obviously a future superstar in this sport. We’re honored to host him for his truck debut. We’ve been working extremely hard on the No. 35 ARRIS Toyota Tundra the past few weeks and we can’t wait to unload it next week and see what Daniel can do.”   

Mark Rette will serve as crew chief for Suarez.
