If you watched the Xfinity race Saturday at Michigan International Speedway; you witness the emotional first series win for Mexican born driver Daniel Suárez.
With the victory, Suárez becomes only the fifth Latino driver to win a NASCAR national series race, joining Frank Mundy, Juan Pablo Montoya, Aric Almirola and Nelson Piquet Jr.
"Daniel Suarez has competed in NASCAR for a relatively brief time, yet his impact on the sport has been immeasurable," CEO Brian France informed. "Combining impressive talent and an incredible personality, Daniel has attracted fans throughout North America. His accomplishments already are too numerous to list, so I congratulate him on his latest, and so far greatest one – a NASCAR XFINITY Series victory. He has come close to victory on occasions, and clearly, today was worth the wait, as he had to pass Kyle Busch, the series’ all-time winningest driver, in the closing laps. Today’s victory proved what many already knew: Daniel has the skill, fortitude and passion for future NASCAR stardom. I look forward to watching his career grow, and accomplishments mount, as he battles for a championship this year in the inaugural NASCAR XFINITY Series Chase."
