  • Suárez finished 22nd in Stage 1 after starting at the rear of the field.
  • Suárez continued his climb in Stage 2 and finished 14th. In the final stage Suárez climbed into the top-10 but handling issued kept him from climbing higher.

Daniel Suárez, driver of the No. 99 Tootsie’s Chevrolet Camaro for Trackhouse Racing:

“It wasn’t too bad. I thought we were going to be a little bit better than that, to be honest. I felt like our No. 99 Tootsies Chevy was a top-10 car most of the race. I don’t know what happened on the last run, the car was pretty bad. I’m proud of my team. They stayed late last night after the wreck in qualifying and worked on getting our backup car ready. Tonight was a great night for everyone at Trackhouse Racing with Ross getting the victory. They gave us fast cars this weekend.”
