Suárez said they text nearly every week and he got on-track help from the veteran at the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 in Atlanta - finishing 21st - and before the season during a test run at the Phoenix International Raceway.

"He's been very, very helpful and, for sure, (it's) just important to have his help moving into the Cup Series," Suárez said. "It's a hard step. It's one of those things that takes time and takes a process to be competitive, and to have help from someone like him helps me to make that process a little bit easier."
