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.

That was third-best on the average speed chart and he was in some fast company. Jamie McMurray (126.604) and Denny Hamlin (126.469) were the only drivers who went faster.

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.

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 - 7:43 PM

Daniel Suarez posted a speed of 177.012 mph in the final round of qualification for the Overton’s 400 at Pocono Raceway and will lineup up eighth on the grid. Erik Jones was .025 seconds slower and lines up ninth.

The Rookie of the Year battle is coming down to these two drivers and both of them have been stellar on drivers’ tracks like Pocono. Either will be solid fantasy picks and the difference will come down to who fits best on one’s roster.

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.

Daniel Suarez finished sixth in the Overton's 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, which matches his career-best finish.

Suarez also finished sixth in the AAA 400 at Dover. He has three seventh-place finishes and 14 top-20s, which has made him one a remarkably consistent rookie value.

In addition to his usual duties behind the wheel of the No. 19 Toyota Camry in the Cup Series, Daniel Suarez will drive the No. 12 ARRIS Toyota for MDM Motorsports in Saturday's NASCAR K&N Pro Series West Carneros 200 at Sonoma Raceway.

Suarez made a name for himself in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East in 2013, scoring nine top-10 finishes and six top-five finishes, propelling him to a third-place finish in the overall points standings. In 2014, he made both his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) debuts. In his first full-time NXS season, he scored 18 top-10 finishes, eight top-five finishes, and scored three-poles, finishing fifth in series points. In 2016, he scored three victories. Those three wins combined with 27 top-10 finishes, 19 top-five finishes, and three poles, propelled him to the 2016 NXS Championship.

None of the 2017 Rookie of the Year contenders cracked the top 12 in Friday’s qualification, but they were all consistent. Daniel Suarez lines up 14th, Erik Jones 15th, and making his Cup debut, Darrell Wallace Jr. will start 16th.

Pocono is occasionally kind to rookies. Denny Hamlin famously won his first two races there with Jimmie Johnson and Chase Elliott also scoring top-fives in their debuts. Look for at least one of these three freshmen to score a top-10.

Daniel Suarez finished sixth in the AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover International Speedway, which is his career-best finish to date in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

This is Suarez’s fourth top-10 finish of the year; his previous three efforts were all seventh-place results. Suarez has been the leading rookie through the first third of the 2017 season and it appears that he is only getting better.
Jun 4 - 6:29 PM

Daniel Suarez was the fastest Rookie of the Year candidate in practice one for the AAA 400 Drive for Autism at Dover International Speedway with a speed of 158.493 mph.

Suarez has been a pleasant surprise on several occasions this year. His three top-10s leads the rookie class. Bristol Motor Speedway is not as comparable as it once was to Dover, but there are still some similarities and Suarez scored a solid top-15 on that bullring.
Jun 2 - 12:11 PM

Daniel Suarez survived contact with Chase Elliott three laps from the end of the Monster Open and held on to win the final stage. He will advance into the big show.

Suarez was determined. He will join Ryan Blaney and Chris Buescher as first time starters in this event. Suarez’s lack of experience will likely cost him a shot at a top-10, but if he stays out of trouble anything can happen.
May 20 - 7:20 PM

For the third time this season, Daniel Suarez finished seventh in a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, which are his career-best results. He started the 400 at Kansas Speedway in 15th.

Those are all of his top-10 finishes for the year. His other seventh-place results came at Phoenix International Raceway and Auto Club Speedway in back-to-back races and he has one other 12th two weeks ago at Richmond International Raceway.
