'Everything' has changed for Daniel Suarez in 2019

'Everything' has changed for Daniel Suarez in 2019 Daniel Suarez isn’t starting from scratch in his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series career, but in many ways he is starting over. Suarez doesn’t have an extensive NASCAR resume but his relatively short but successful tenure has been entirely at Joe Gibbs Racing, including winning the Xfinity Series championship in 2016 and becoming the first Mexican-born driver to win a NASCAR national series race. On Monday, Stewart-Haas Racing announced it had hired Suarez to drive its No. 41 Fords in the Cup series beginning this season.

“This is the best birthday present I could ask for,” Suarez said in a release. “We’ve all seen how competitive Stewart-Haas Racing is – all of their drivers won last year and all of them advanced deep into the playoffs. This is the opportunity every driver wants, and now I have it. 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.”

Stewart - Haas Racing is an American professional stock car racing team that currently competes in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, the NASCAR Xfinity Series

Suarez, a native of Mexico, made 72 starts for Joe Gibbs Racing over the last two seasons in the Cup Series after winning the 2016 NASCAR Xfinity Series championship.

Though he hasn’t won a race in NASCAR’s premier series, Suarez has 21 top-10 finishes.

“In each series Daniel has raced in, he’s advanced quickly from rookie to race winner,” SHR co-owner Tony Stewart said. “And he did it all while learning a new language and a new culture. He’s dedicated, he’s talented and we’re proud to have him as a key part of our race team.”

Stewart’s fellow co-owner Gene Haas added: “We’re in racing to win and we believe Daniel Suarez can win in the NASCAR Cup Series.”

Kurt Busch, who drove SHR’s No. 41 car since it debuted in 2014, announced his move to Chip Ganassi Racing in December.

Martin Truex Jr., formerly of now-defunct Furniture Row Racing, will drive Suarez’s old No. 19 ride with Joe Gibbs Racing.

By signing Martin Truex Jr., Toyota is well-poised to re-take title in 2019.
It isn't often that a driver of Martin Truex Jr.'s caliber just saunters onto the open market.
