Daniel Suarez pitted 15 laps into segment two of the KC Masterpiece 400 with a loose wheel on the right front.

On Wednesday, Daniel Suarez and Clint Bowyer were both hit with rear window violations following race week’s AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway.

Suarez and Bowyer were both given a 20-point penalty, a monetary fine, and will lose their car chiefs for the next two points’ paying races. This has a greater impact on Suarez since he is outside of playoff contention.

Daniel Suarez finished third in the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway, which is his best finish on this track in his career.

By finishing third, Suarez keeps a perfect streak of top-10 finishes at Dover alive. He did not spend the entire race in the top five, but he established track position when the red flag waved for rain and fought hard to maintain his position.

Daniel Suarez finished in the top 10 in both 2018 starts at Dover International Speedway.

Consistency and speed are important when handicapping a NASCAR race. Suarez’s sixth-place finish in the spring and eighth in the fall suggests this is a track that suits his driving style. In fact, he has been more consistent than his Joe Gibbs Racing, even though Kyle Busch scored the victory last fall.

Daniel Suarez earned his first top-10 on a plate track in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway. He was 10th after starting 14th.

Suarez’s previous best on this track type was a 15th last fall in Talladega. Now that he has broken through, he could be a good value at Daytona International Speedway this July.

Jamie McMurray cut a left-rear tire in final practice for the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway and spun in the middle of a more than 20-car drafting pack.

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.

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.
