Ross Chastain, Daniel Suarez Competing in CARS Tour Race at North Wilkesboro

Daniel Suarez and Ross Chastain will compete in the CARS Late Model Tour event from North Wilkesboro Speedway, in preparation for the NASCAR All-Star Race at the historic track.

Ross Chastain and Daniel Suarez – teammates in the NASCAR Cup Series for Trackhouse Racing – will compete in the historic CARS Late Model Tour event at North Wilkesboro Speedway on May 17th.

The teammates for Trackhouse Racing will compete in the mid-week event in order to gain experience for the NASCAR All-Star Race, which will be held at the historic 0.625-mile oval, which hasn’t seen a NASCAR event since 1996.

“I have never been to North Wilkesboro nor really spent much time driving a late model,” said Suarez. “Every little bit helps. Plus, it is going to be a lot of fun going short-track racing. Getting familiar with the track will help our program a lot.”

Daniel Suarez, who scored his first NASCAR Cup Series victory last Summer at Sonoma Raceway, will pilot the No. 99 Jockey Chevrolet for R and S Race Cars, a full-service race car facility in South Boston, Virginia.

“They are paying one million dollars and giving out a beautiful trophy to win that race so we are going to do everything we have to do to prepare for that night,” said Ross Chastain, a two-time Cup Series winner.

Chastain, who currently leads the NASCAR Cup Series point standings, will pilot the No. 28 Chevrolet Camaro for Pinnacle Racing Group, with sponsorship from Ambetter Health.

Ambetter Health is a health insurance offering available on the Health Insurance Marketplace, or exchange, established by the Affordable Care Act. One of the healthcare programs provided by Centene Corporation is made available through local health plans and covers a wide variety of healthcare services, including preventive and wellness services, maternity and newborn care, pediatric services, mental health, and substance misuse services, prescription drug coverage, and more.

The CARS Late Model Tour event at North Wilkesboro Speedway is part of a full week of racing at the North Carolina facility, which also includes the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and the NASCAR Cup Series, as well as the ASA STARS National Tour.

Suarez will also compete in the ASA STARS National Tour event at the 0.625-mile facility, driving the No. 99 for Rackley WAR, which also competes in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.
