MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Win-Tron Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing have announced that Daniel Suarez will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut for Win-Tron in the Fred’s 250 at Talladega Superspeedway next Saturday.

Suarez will race in the No. 35 ARRIS Toyota in next week’s 94-lap race at Talladega in preparation for his NASCAR Xfinity Series Daytona debut next February.

The 22-year-old from Monterrey, Mexico, currently races full-time in the NASCAR Toyota Series in Mexico where he presently has five wins this season and sits second in the drivers’ standings.

Suarez has also competed in 13 of 16 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East races this year and he won at New Smyrna and Daytona earlier in the year to open the K&N Pro Series East season.

Next year’s driver of the No. 18 ARRIS Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing in the Xfinity Series has been learning his way around the larger NASCAR National Series circuits this season in preparation for next year, a purpose that next Saturday’s Talladega start will serve.

While he has plenty of experience on short tracks and intermediate circuits (he even has a win on a road course in the Toyota Series), Suarez is yet to race on a superspeedway with a restrictor plate package.

Suarez has made two starts in the Nationwide Series (soon to be Xfinity Series) this year, one at Richmond International Raceway for Joe Gibbs Racing and one at Chicagoland Speedway for RAB Racing. He has also made one start in the ARCA Racing Series for Venturini Motorsports at Kansas Speedway.

Kevin Cywinski, co-owner of Win-Tron Racing, praised Suarez’s ability behind a race car and spoke of his excitement to work with him in six days.

“This is a big opportunity for us at Win-Tron Racing,” Cywinski says. “Daniel is a talented race car driver and obviously a future superstar in this sport. We’re honored to host him for his Truck debut. We’ve been working extremely hard on the No. 35 ARRIS Toyota Tundra the past few weeks and we can’t wait to unload it next week and see what Daniel can do.”

Nate Thiesse, Cywinski’s fellow co-owner of the operation, echoed his partner’s sentiments.

“We’re ecstatic to establish this partnership with Daniel and Joe Gibbs Racing for Talladega,” Thiesse said. “Daniel firmly represents everything that Win-Tron Racing is made of and we feel that he’ll excel in his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut.”

Mark Rette, who last served as crew chief for the No. 35 Toyota at Pocono in August, will serve as crew chief for Suarez.
