DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Daniel Suarez went to victory lane for the second time in three days Monday night at Daytona Int’l Speedway.

Suarez dominated the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East portion of the UNOH Battle At The Beach on the temporary three-eighths-mile track on the backstretch of the superspeedway. Suarez won the season opener for the series Sunday night at New Smyrna Speedway.

A regular in the NASCAR Toyota Mexico Series, the native of Monterrey, Mexico, led 117 laps in driving the Rev Racing Toyota to the $20,000 triumph.

“I can’t believe this,” said Suarez, who became the first driver since Sean Caisse in 2006 to win the first two races of the K&N Pro Series East season. “I have to thank everyone with Rev Racing and Sunoco Racing. I have no words to explain what I feel right now.”

Austin Hill finished second, followed by Bill McAnally Racing teammates Brandon McReynolds and Nick Drake. NASCAR Whelen All-American Series champion Lee Pulliam finished fifth.

The finish:

Daniel Suarez, Austin Hill, Brandon McReynolds, Nick Drake, Lee Pulliam, Kenzie Ruston, Gray Gaulding, Patrick Staropoli, Scott Heckert, Kaz Grala, Brandon Gdovic, Jesse Little, Sergio Pena, Cameron Hayley, Ben Rhodes, Jay Beasley, Mackena Bell, Brodie Kostecki, Eddie McDonald, Ryan Gifford, David Garbo Jr., Brennan Newberry, Ronnie Bassett Jr., Brandon Jones, Jerry Dawson, Cory Joyce.
