  • Trackhouse Racing driver Daniel Suárez finished 10th in Sunday’s 400-mile NASCAR Cup Series race at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway.

  • Sunday marked the eighth of 10 races in the 2022 playoffs and second of three races in the Round of 8. One race remains in the Round of 8 before the top four remaining drivers will race for the championship in a winner-take-all format at Phoenix Raceway on Nov. 6.
  • Suárez is not in playoff contention, however he is now 10th in the standings after Sunday’s race.
  • Ross Chastain and Suárez started 20th and 23rd Sunday and each ran well in the opening stage, finishing 14th and 11th.
  • In the second stage, both Trackhouse drivers used their long run speed to move to the front with Suárez finishing seventh and Chastain eighth.
  • The next race is Sunday at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway, and the Round of 8 concludes Oct. 31 at Martinsville.


Daniel Suárez, driver of the No. 99 Princess Cruises Chevrolet Camaro for Trackhouse Racing:

“I was proud of my pit crew today. We had a fast Princess Cruises Chevrolet and fast stops. That extra stop for the diffuser flap just ruined our chances. We didn’t have enough time to get back up to the front. I wish we could have won and given 99 fans a free Princess Cruises, but at least we got back up to 10th and 10 fans will get a free cruise.”
