Trackhouse Racing driver Daniel Suárez has signed a multi-year extension that will keep the 31-year-old Monterrey, Mexico native behind the wheel at the Justin Marks-owned team.

“Obviously, everyone at Trackhouse Racing is pleased with the performance and professionalism of Daniel both on and off the track,” says Marks. “Culture has been of prime importance since the idea of Trackhouse existed only on a whiteboard in an office. Daniel has fulfilled every expectation and we look forward to the future. The best is yet to come.”

Terms of the agreement will remain private.

Suarez, along with teammate Ross Chastain will begin their third year with Trackhouse at the NASCAR season kick-off on Sunday in the 65th running of the Daytona 500.

“Trackhouse is my home and I am very happy with this announcement,” says Suárez. “We are building something special on the No. 99 team and at Trackhouse Racing. We can’t wait to get the season started Sunday.”

Trackhouse Racing competed as a single car team with Suárez in 2021 with its cars housed at Richard Childress Racing in Welcome, North Carolina. In June of 2021, Trackhouse announced the acquisition of Chip Ganassi Racing’s NASCAR assets, a move that secured two full-time NASCAR Cup Series entries and cleared the path for expansion.

Trackhouse moved into its race shop in Concord, North Carolina and fielded the No. 99 for Suárez and the No. 1 Chevrolet with Chastain in 2022.

Suárez and Chastain combined for three wins, 21-top five and 34 top-10 finishes last year in Trackhouse’s first season as a multi-car team. Chastain’s second and Suárez’s 10th-place finish in the season standings were each career bests.

Suárez became the first Mexican driver to win a Cup race when he dominated the track at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway in June. He is the only Spanish-speaking driver in the NASCAR Cup Series.
