Daniel Suarez came into Sunday’s Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard tied on points for the final Playoff berth with Ryan Newman. Within the first 15 laps of Sunday’s race, things got a bit difficult for the driver of the No. 41 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford Mustang.

Suarez’s team has made repairs and the No. 41 is back on track, so he is still on track to battle for the final playoff position, but he will have to come from the back and hope there is not any remaining tire rub from his damage.
