Suarez was listed as one of our favorite dark horses in this week’s Weekend Update. He has been among the best non-playoff contenders for the past five or six races and should be watch closely until the end of the season. In fact, he may still be able to sneak into Victory Lane.

We thought both freshmen would be a good value and that turned out to be true. This was a sweep of the top 10 for Suarez and his third straight such finish on the track type. Suarez will be an early favorite at Phoenix International Raceway.

Daniel Suarez finished seventh in the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway after starting the race 16th.

In this week’s Daily Fantasy article, we touted both Erik Jones and Suarez as good values and they came through with solid runs. For the driver of the No. 19, the performance was critical because it was his first top 10 in four races after he finished in the single digits four times in a row. Runs like this have a way of changing momentum.

Daniel Suarez was notably quick in regard to 10-lap averages for the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway+ with a speed of 126.387 mph.

Daniel Suarez rolled off the grid late in the second round of qualification for the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway and posted a lap of 200.468 mph, which will line up him 16th on the grid.

Suarez waited until late in the session and as a result he did not get the benefit of early shade. He should be able to climb into the top 10.
Aug 11 - 6:04 PM

Daniel Suarez scored his first career top-five with a third in the I Love New York 355k at Watkins Glen International.

Equally important, this was Suarez’s fourth straight top-10. He was sixth at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, then seventh at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Pocono Raceway. Each of these shares a characteristic of need to brake early in the corners, so the No. 19 should be watched closely in the final minimally-banked tracks.

Daniel Suarez finished seventh in the Overton’s 400 at Pocono Raceway and that was his third consecutive top-10.

This is the first time in his career that he has earned three top-10s in a row. It is unlikely that he will keep that alive next week on the road course of Watkins Glen International, but he started a current streak of six straight top-20s at Sonoma with a 16th.

Jul 30 - 1:16 PM

Daniel Suarez earned his sixth career top-10 when he crossed under the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in seventh.

Notably, all of his results have been either sixths or sevenths. This is the second time in his career that he scored back-to-back top-10s. His other two top-10s were separated by one race, so he seems to be capable of capitalizing on momentum.
