Rookie star also to make special appearance at Budweiser ROLL-BAR on Sunday morning
PHOENIX – 2016 NASCAR XFINITY Series Champion Daniel Suárez will be making his Phoenix Raceway debut in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series on Sunday, March 19, and what better way to celebrate than with $19 tickets to the Camping World 500.
Located in the Lower Bryan Grandstand, a special ticket package is available to celebrate his first appearance. The ticket package includes a Daniel Suárez autographed hero card (limited to the first 250) and one lucky buyer and a guest will be entered into a sweepstakes to win a meet and greet with Suárez on Sunday (official rules can be found at PhoenixRaceway.com). The package is available online through the weekend at PhoenixRaceway.com/Suarez19.
The first Mexican-born driver to win a NASCAR national series race, Suárez was recently catapulted into his rookie season replacing Carl Edwards behind the helm of the No. 19 ARRIS Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing.
Suárez became a Phoenix-favorite after earning his first win in the Valley in 2014 the NASCAR Mexico Series Toyota 120 in 2014. He has spent the past two seasons racing to the top of the ranks in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, including three top-five and three top-10 finishes at his self-proclaimed hometown track in Phoenix.
“I love coming to Phoenix Raceway, it is like a home away from home for me,” said Suárez. “Phoenix has been great to me, not just the racetrack but the community, the fans… This racetrack was one of my first races that I had when I moved to the United States five years ago, four and a half years ago. And since the very beginning, I have had success here, and the fans were great.”
Suárez made history again when he won the 2016 NASCAR XFINITY Series Championship, becoming the first Latin American to claim a major NASCAR title. Just over a week before, he drove to victory lane in the Lucas Oil 150 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Phoenix Raceway.
