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.”
