Daniel Suarez to Drive Kaulig-Prepared SS-GreenLight Racing Entry at Daytona

Daniel Suarez will compete in the NASCAR Xfinity Series season-opener at Daytona International Speedway, piloting a Kaulig Racing-prepared entry for SS-GreenLight Racing.

The field for the NASCAR Xfinity Series season-opener at Daytona International Speedway is getting more and more stacked, with Thursday’s addition of 2016 champion Daniel Suarez to the mix for the United Rentals 300.

Suarez, who competes full-time in the NASCAR Cup Series for Trackhouse Racing, will be piloting the No. 14 Chevrolet Camaro in the season-opening event. The entry will be registered under the SS-GreenLight Racing banner, but Kaulig Racing will be handling the preparations for the vehicle, per Bob Pockrass of FOX Sports.

The NASCAR Cup Series race-winner and iconic fast food chain jointly announced the news in a social media post on Thursday, while unveiling the paint scheme for the No. 14 Chevrolet Camaro.

The deal between Wendy’s and Suarez is part of a newfound agreement for Trackhouse Racing, announced in January, in which the fast food chain will partner with the team in the NASCAR Cup Series while sponsoring drivers Shane van Gisbergen and Daniel Suarez in the Xfinity Series.

A native of Monterrey, Mexico, Suarez is a three-time winner in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Though, in 24 NASCAR National Series starts at Daytona, the series champion has never finished better than seventh place, scoring only three top-10 results.

With the unique arrangement this deal brings, Suarez will effectively have at least five teammates in the season-opening race at Daytona, between SS-GreenLight Racing driver Patrick Emerling (#07) and Kaulig Racing drivers Daniel Dye (#10), Josh Williams (#11), AJ Allmendinger (#16), and Shane van Gisbergen (#97).

Neither Kaulig Racing nor SS-GreenLight Racing have made any public comment regarding the partnership for the season-opener at Daytona. Additional details regarding the No. 14 entry in the NASCAR Xfinity Series will likely come at a later date.

TobyChristie.com has reached out to SS-GreenLight Racing for comment regarding the nature of the partnership between the organization and Kaulig Racing, but as of the time of publishing, have yet to receive a response.
