July 4th Weekend & Road Course Racing in Wisconsin For Daniel Suárez

Trackhouse Racing

Excuse Trackhouse Racing for not only celebrating July 4th Weekend at Road America this weekend, but also reveling in the fact that the Kwik Trip 250 presented by JOCKEY Made in America at the Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin track is a road course. 

Trackhouse Chevrolet Camaro drivers Daniel Suárez and Ross Chastain have each earned their first career NASCAR Cup Series victories at the previous two road courses on the 2022 schedule.

Suárez won at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway on June 12 and Chastain visited victory lane at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas on March 27.

For the first time in 2022, Suárez will sport the “Made in America” paint scheme on his No. 99 Chevrolet created by Kenosha, Wisconsin company Jockey. Chastain drove a similar scheme at Nashville Superspeedway on Sunday. 

The Jockey partnership with Trackhouse is the first such team sponsorship in the 146-year history of the apparel brand. At the core of the partnership will be the launch of the brand’s new Made in America Collection – an effort aimed at delivering premium quality product; reshoring American manufacturing jobs; supporting families in local communities; and providing a more sustainable option for American consumers.

Suárez arrives at Road America after finishing 15th at Nashville. Early in the race he climbed as high as second before handling difficulties ruined his bid for victory. 

USA Network will televise Sunday’s Kwik Trip 250 presented by JOCKEY Made in America at 3 p.m. EDT.

Are you the favorite to win at Road America?

“Honestly, I don’t know. At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter to me. I think at COTA, we we’re extremely strong. Our car broke early and we did what we had to do to finish the stage and survive. But in my opinion, we were very, very strong; even stronger than Sonoma. In Sonoma, we had a very good car. We did a very good job calling the race.” 

Have you started thinking about the playoffs?

“Honestly, I haven’t thought about the Playoffs yet. We still have 2 ½ months before that. I feel like there is still a lot of things to be done before that. It feels good to know that we’re locked-in. But as a race car driver, at least for me, we know that being locked-in doesn’t mean a lot. For me, it means a lot when you have a lot of points in the bank – when you have more than a win, but also at least a few Playoff points. That’s when you start becoming a strong contender in the Playoff races. Hopefully we can get a couple more wins and some more Playoff points. That would be nice.”
