Daniel Suarez overcame several incidents to finish 10th in the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway.
Suarez was part of a three-way battle in the closing laps when he was dinged by Jimmie Johnson and then slapped into the side of Erik Jones. With a injured thumb, he had to feel like this was a hard earned top-10 – his second of the season. Apr 21 - 11:27 PM

Daniel Suarez has been solid on short, flat tracks during his first two seasons of Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series competition, with five top-10s in 10 starts.

In addition to his five top-10 finishes on minimally-banked courses one-mile or less in length, Suarez has two more top-15s and two 18th-place finishes. That means he has finished in the back half of the pack only once and the downside to starting him is manageable.

Daniel Suarez injured his left hand in an accident on the second lap of the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, but kept driving until the checkers waved.

Suarez finished 29th in the race in a heavily damaged car. It was his worst finish since the Daytona International Speedway 500 (37th), although he came close to finishing that badly on another similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track: Suarez was 26th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Daniel Suarez posted the fastest single lap in the second practice session for the O'Reilly 500 at Texas Motor Speedway with a speed of 198.998 m.p.h.

The speeds were deceptive in Saturday morning's practice because of extremely cold weather. While it is nice to top the leaderboard, there is a risk that young drivers can get fooled and make the wrong changes.

Based on his first six races of the 2018 season, it would appear Daniel Suarez is starting to suffer from a sophomore slump.

Despite being on track at the end of the last five races, Suarez has finished on the lead lap only once; that came at Ingenuity Sun Media Raceway (Phoenix) when he recorded his only top-10 of the season. Suarez has one other top-15, which came in week two at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Mar 28 - 11:22 AM

In his short career, Daniel Suarez has scored five top-10 finishes in nine short, flat track races, including his most recent attempt in the TicketGuardian 500 at Ingenuity Sun Media Raceway (Phoenix).

Suarez has not yet cracked the top 10 at Martinsville Speedway, but he finished 15th there last year, which was his fifth straight top-15 on this track type. Expect a result of seventh to 15th and plan accordingly.

Daniel Suarez got loose and crashed after hitting a seam in turn four midway through the first practice for the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway.

Suarez will have to go to a backup car and qualify it with no practice. He will be qualifying for pit position only as he will be forced to drop to the back of the pack. If his official starting position is outside of the top 25, he could be one of this week’s best values in games that offer place-differential points.

On the heels of an eighth-place finish in the TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway, Daniel Suarez could earn another in the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway.

Suarez was seventh in this race last year, but he slipped at Michigan International Speedway in its two races. Still, the entire Joe Gibbs Racing organization has been solid so far this season and should be able to have all four of their drivers contend for a top-10.
Mar 15 - 8:05 AM

Daniel Suarez finished eighth in the TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway.

Last year, Suarez finished between sixth and eighth in four of the eight races on short, flat tracks. That included a seventh in the Phoenix spring race. Fantasy owners should continue to regard Suarez as one of the top contenders on each of the events on this track type.
Mar 11 - 8:07 PM

Nine of Daniel Suarez’s 11 attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks have ended in top-20 finishes, including a pair of top-10s.

Suarez finished 20th in last year’s Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. That is his third-worst finish on this track type and yet his average finish is only 16.3. He has one poor result of 36th to offset the two top-10s, but the vast majority of his efforts have ended in the mid-teens and that is where fantasy players should expect him to land this week.
Mar 2 - 11:07 AM

Daniel Suarez’s last of 12 top-10s came in the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and he needs another one to stay fantasy relevant.

Since then, Suarez has failed to finish four of seven races. Three of these came as the result of accidents. The three events in which he was running at the end landed in a narrow range of 14th through 18th, so that is where fantasy owners can realistically expect him to finish this week.
Feb 24 - 8:56 AM

Daniel Suarez (No. 18 Interstate Batteries Toyota) finished 8th in Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) season-opening PowerShares QQQ 300 at Florida's Daytona Int'l Speedway.

He started 17th in the lineup, led 5 laps and completed all of the 143 laps run. Suarez, a Cup series regular, is not eligible to earn points in the 2018 NXS driver championship standings.
Feb 17 - 10:29 PM

On the heels of his fastest lap in the first practice session on Friday, Daniel Suarez also had the fastest time in the afternoon. His speed of 203.179 mph easily topped Ryan Newman at 202.945.

Speed is not the only factor to consider this week. Suarez will need help from other driver to get to and stay at the front from a 17th-place starting position. He was all by himself in his Gatorade Duel in Daytona, however, and will have teammates to lean on this Sunday.
Feb 16 - 2:01 PM

Daniel Suarez and Erik Jones will line up side by side in the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway this week, with the fifth- and sixth-place starting spots respectively.

The two rookies have battled neck and neck all season long so it is fitting that they will start side by side. Both are capable of scoring top-10 finishes this week and that makes both of them great values.

Daniel Suarez was the highest finishing Rookie of the Year contender in the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway with his sixth-place finish

Suarez and fellow rookie Erik Jones have engaged in one of the best freshmen contests we’ve seen in a while and it has turned them into superior fantasy values. Both need to be considered legitimate contenders for the roster every week until the season is over.
