Suarez Goes 2-For-2 In K&N East
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.
