DANIEL SUÁREZ: Driver, No. 41 Ford Mustang
Birthdate: Jan. 7, 1992
Hometown: Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico
Residence: Huntersville, North Carolina
Wherever Daniel Suárez has raced on his way to competing in the elite Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, the 27-year-old driver from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico has won. From go-karts to the NASCAR PEAK Mexico Series to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series to the NASCAR Truck Series to the NASCAR Xfinity Series, Suárez has proven his mettle by winning.
After marching to the 2016 Xfinity Series championship in a breakthrough season that saw Suárez become the first Mexican-born driver to win a NASCAR national series race, Suárez was thrust into the NASCAR Cup Series in 2017. In two seasons with Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR), Suárez made 72 starts. He tallied 21 top-10 finishes with a best result of second on July 29, 2018 at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway, a race where Suárez led the field after securing his first career NASCAR Cup Series pole a day earlier.
But Suárez is used to winning, and he has constantly parlayed success to advance his career. It’s why he transitioned to Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) in 2019, taking over the No. 41 Haas Automation/ARRIS Ford Mustang led by veteran crew chief Billy Scott.
“To have the opportunity to join a top-caliber operation in Stewart-Haas Racing with great bosses in Tony Stewart and Gene Haas, an experienced crew chief in Billy Scott, and teammates in Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer and Aric Almirola who have accomplished so much – that’s the opportunity every driver wants,” Suárez said. “I want to deliver for this team, our partners in Haas Automation, ARRIS and Ford and, ultimately, for me. We have everything we need to be successful and I’m very proud to be a part of this family.”

ARRIS Racing Mexico in fantastic form for the 2019 Season!
In 2018, the ARRIS Racing team in Mexico finished the season in fantastic form, and 2019 is looking even better…
Last season, Abraham Calderón, driver of the ARRIS #2 car, won the final race in Mexico City, going from pole position to the checkered flag. Immediately after accepting his trophy on the podium from Carlos Slim, Abraham jumped into the ARRIS truck, where he came in second place (returning to the podium) and thereby accumulating enough points to be the overall series champion for the third year in a row!
The driver of the ARRIS #4 car, Rodrigo Rejón, at only 17 years of age, and in his first season with ARRIS, narrowly missed becoming the youngest driver in NASCAR Mexico history to win the championship, coming in second place overall. That historic event is still in play in 2019 since, if he is able to win the championship this year, Rodrigo will still qualify as the youngest ever to win it.
In just a few short years, the ARRIS Racing team in Mexico has accumulated 5 championship trophies! With a little luck, and a lot of work, the team may just add some new trophies in 2019…
