Daniel Suarez, No. 99, will make a bright, fresh look at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The Trophy Series entry will have a scheme highlighting Kid Rock’s Big A** Honky Tonk Rock and Roll Steakhouse.
Trackhouse Racing premiered the chart on Twitter on October 11th. Number 99 will have a yellow and blue striped with Kid Rock tape logos on the sides and lid. Suarez has offered an in-car camera sponsored by the Nashville Foundation throughout the 2022 season, but this will be the first time she has held the position of primary partner.
Suarez’s teammate, Ross Chastain, will also show Nashville’s nightlife in his regular car. The No. 1 Chevrolet Camaro will have the Tootsie Orchid Lounge as the primary partner for the trip to Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Suarez showed the bar seven times during the 2022 season, including the Daytona 500. The tie-breaker at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will be Chastain’s first partnership with the pub.
A mechanical problem disrupted Suarez’s qualifiers
Kid Rock’s chart is added after a stunning end to Suarez’s time in qualifying. He was in a position to steer his way into the quarter-finals over Chase Briscoe and Daniel Suarez, but a mechanical issue disrupted the race at Charlotte Roval.
Suarez lost steering at the start of the final stage on the road track. He fell off the pace during his 99th fight, and made several extended stops as Trackhouse Racing tried to fix the problem.
Suarez, who can be heard screaming in pain during the race, finished five laps behind the leader. He missed the playoffs by just nine points after entering the weekend by 12 points. This knocked him out of the playoffs and opened up an opportunity for Briscoe to move forward.
“I really needed a little time to recover physically and emotionally after yesterday’s race,” Suarez tweeted on October 10. “What seemed like an easy race to move on to the next turn became the hardest race I’ve ever done in my life…
“My hands, wrists, arms, elbows, shoulders, upper back and lower back were all very stressful and not many people were able to race this way and I just couldn’t give in to myself and my team. We left it all there. Thanks to all Amigo, 99 and Trackhouse fans For your love and support! We will continue to shine 2 weeks in the next 4 weeks.”
Suarez’s teammate is still eligible for the tournament
Suarez is no longer eligible for a place in the fourth championship, so his focus will turn to collecting trophies during the remaining four races. For comparison, Chastain will try to secure his place at the end of the season.
Driver #1 had his own problem in Charlotte Roval. He hit the wall and had to go to the garage to get it fixed. However, he had enough bonus points to survive. Go into the quarter-finals and get ready for three pivotal races.
Chastain’s goal is to reach the fourth championship, and he will be following it up at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Homestead-Miami Speedway and Martinsville Speedway.
Chastain finished third overall during the spring race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway while Alex Bowman won. He finished fifth at Martinsville Speedway in the spring while William Byron won. Now he will try to get past these offers while facing extra pressure.
