DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Trackhouse Racing announced Friday that it has signed Daniel Suarez to a contract extension.
Suarez confirmed that the extension is only for next season.
As for doing only a one-year deal, Suarez said Friday: “There (were) a lot of things we had to discuss to get to this point, and there (are) a lot of things changing in the industry (a new media rights deal will begin in 2025). We decided to do it this way for now. In reality, the same way I wasn’t worried about this contract, I’m not worried about next year, either. We have to focus on what we have to do to be competitive on the racetrack and try to win races, and everything else will come by itself.
“Trackhouse is my home now. They know that. We’re working together extremely well.”
The 30-year-old Suarez is in his second season with Trackhouse Racing. He scored his first career Cup victory this season, winning at Sonoma, and will be making his first playoff appearance this season.
Suarez goes into Saturday night’s Cup race at Daytona International Speedway (7 p.m. ET on NBC and Peacock) 12th in the points. He has one win, six top-five finishes and 10 top 10s this year.
