No. 99 Chevrolet driver Daniel Suárez certainly remembers the most recent road course race in the NASCAR Cup Series in March at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas (COTA).
Suárez qualified second and grabbed the lead on the opening lap then led all 15 laps of Stage 1.
Contact with another car at the start of Stage 2 led to a flat tire and dropped him to 37th. A charge back to 12th despite power steering problems seemed like a good recovery.
However, another flat tire left him with a 25th-place finish. Trackhouse teammate Ross Chastain prevailed in a three-car duel in the final lap to give Trackhouse Racing its inaugural victory after just 48 races in its history.
Suárez and Chastain led 46 of 69 laps at COTA.
Suárez hopes Trackhouse Racing brings cars just as fast to Sunday’s road course race in Sonoma. Both he and Chastain should be two of the favorites this weekend in California.
His No. 99 Chevrolet Camaro will carry the Onx Homes/Renu livery for the first time Sunday. FS1 will televise Sunday’s 110-lap race at 3:30 p.m. EDT.
