No. 99 Trackhouse Chevrolet driver Daniel Suárez has a clear mission for the final four races of the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season.
He wants to win races and have some fun along the way.
Winning might seem like an obvious goal every weekend for the 30-year-old Monterrey, Mexico native but since he is no longer in the championship battle, trophies are more important than accumulating points.
And, for Suárez, driving a race car is always fun.
He’ll combine those two goals Sunday when the Cup Series races at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Suárez’s No. 99 Chevrolet carries the logos and colors of Kid Rock’s Honky Tonk.
The Nashville bar and steakhouse includes five floors, four stages, and six bars and can accommodate almost two thousand people. The Honky Tonk’s namesake Kid Rock is a multi-platinum American rock ‘n roll icon.
His music has been characterized as a melting pot of musical genres; from rap-rock in the ‘90s with singles “Bawitdaba” and “Cowboy,” to the multi-chart hit “Picture,” a collaboration with Sheryl Crow that charted at No. 4 on the Hot 100, to the global smash hit, “All Summer Long,” which charted at No. 1 in eight countries across Europe and Australia.
|Kid Rock is no stranger to NASCAR or Trackhouse Racing. He joined Ross Chastain in victory lane at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway in April when Chastain took the lead on the last lap and recorded the second of Trackhouse’s three victories in 2022. Suárez’s victory in June at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway was the second-year team’s third victory.|
|Suárez could use a fun weekend. He saw his title aspirations slip away Sunday on the Roval at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway when his steering failed at the beginning of the final stage. Until then, Suárez’s day was perfect, earning third and fifth-place bonus points in the first two stages. It appeared all he had to do was finish the race mid-pack, but the mechanical gremlins dropped him to 36th and five laps behind the leaders depriving him of joining Chastain in advancing to the Round of 8 in the 2022 playoffs. Winning in Kid Rock’s car Sunday could ease that pain. NBC will television Sunday’s race at 2:30 p.m. EDT|
