Daniel Suárez won the XFINITY Series season finale and title at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Saturday, becoming the first Latin American champion in a NASCAR® national series.
The 24-year-old Mexican bested fellow championship contenders Elliott Sadler, Justin Allgaier and Erik Jones on a botched restart with three laps to go.
Daniel Suárez: "It's very hard to put into words," Suarez said. "I'm speechless right now. I'm just very proud of everyone and thankful to have the family that I have, my mom, my dad. They gave me all the tools to be here right now. They put me in a car even when we didn't have the support or the racing background. They supported me, and right now we are just living a dream."
Joe Gibbs: "For us, after two years, to be where we are tonight is amazing," car owner Joe Gibbs said. "This is going to be a big deal for our sport. It's huge."
Cheers to you, Daniel!
