As the NASCAR season approaches the end of the 2020 racing season, more pieces of the “Silly Season” fall into place.

The Michael Jordan/Denny Hamlin racing team will not be the only new team to join NASCAR next season.  The Trackhouse Entertainment Group has announced that they have formed a new racing team that will make its debut at the Daytona 500.

Trackhouse has entered into a partnership with Richard Childress Racing to technical support that includes technology, intellectual property, human capital, and engineering elements.

The Group has tapped Mexican born driver Daniel Suarez to drive the number 99 Chevrolet.

Suarez is the first driver born outside of the United States to win a NASCAR championship when he won the Xfinity Series championship in 2016.

Trackhouse Entertainment Group owner Justin Marks spoke on the new team saying, “the formation of a top-level NASCAR Cup Series team has been a dream of mine for a long time.  A lot of hard work has transpired to get us to this point and I don’t think we could’ve ended up with better partners in RCR and Chevrolet and with a more passionate and committed driver than Daniel Suárez. Daniel’s drive and hunger to get to the top of this sport is palpable every time I am in his presence. We are building a team of winners and Daniel has delivered just about every time he’s sat in race winning equipment. It’s my job now to put a car underneath him that will carry him to the highest echelon of the sport.”

Suarez spoke on his new racing team saying, “I see in Trackhouse a great opportunity for me with a very strong group of people that share the same vision, commitment and goals that I have.  Justin has been involved in the racing world for over 20 years and understands the ins and outs of the sport both as a driver and from the business side. I have learned a lot in the last few years and have been very fortunate to be a part of very good organizations. I have learned that this sport is about people, and I know we are going to work very hard to put together a talented team. Furthermore, getting the support from a strong manufacturer like Chevrolet will be a key to our success. My goal is simple, I want to win races.”

After moving to the United States from his Monterrey home, Daniel Suarez learned to speak English by watching television.  He began his U.S. racing career in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and began to move his way up through the ranks driving in the Gander RV and outdoors Truck Series, the Xnifity Series, and currently drives the number 96 car for Gaunt Brothers Racing.  In 138 Cup Series races, Suarez has finished in the top 10 32 times and has sat on the pole twice.
