CONCORD, NC. (March 22nd, 2013) – Daniel Suarez has a busy schedule this weekend as he attempts to race in two countries in two days. On Saturday he’ll hit the pavement at Greenville Pickens Speedway (GPS) with Rev Racing for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series (NKNPS) East race, and on Sunday he’ll head to San Luis Potosí, Mexico, for the NASCAR Toyota Series race.
This fast-paced lifestyle is nothing new for Suarez, who spent time trekking across countries last season to race in both the U.S. and Mexico. The Monterrey, Mexico, native has built an impressive resume in the NASCAR Toyota Series, where he was named Rookie of the Year in 2010, and finished ninth in the series standings in 2011, and third in 2012.
Suarez was selected last fall to be a part of the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program, and he hopes to use this opportunity to gain valuable experience. The 21-year-old has already shown an incredible amount of promise, and was selected to represent the future of the sport as a member of the 2011 class of the NASCAR “Next 9”.
“It’s an honor to be a part of the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program and to race for Rev Racing this season.” said Suarez “Kyle Larson and Darrell Wallace Jr. both came through the program, and are now racing full-time at the top levels of the sport. I hope to follow in their footsteps.”
Suarez raced at GPS for the first time last season, where he qualified fifth and finished 10th. He’s looking forward to returning this weekend, and improving on last year’s efforts.
