Mexican driver Daniel Suarez isn’t reluctant to admit the prospect of his first foray into the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series has already been the subject of discussion at Joe Gibbs Racing.
But the 2015 Sunoco rookie of the year in the NASCAR XFINITY Series doesn’t feel the need to force the issue. Suarez will compete for the XFINITY title this year in addition to running 13 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races for Kyle Busch Motorsports.
If an opportunity to try his hand in the Cup series happens to materialize, so much the better.
“We have had that conversation a little bit here, a little bit there, but at the end of the day, I’m one of those drivers that thinks, if we do our job with what we are doing right now, the future is going to take care of itself.
“Yeah, we’ve had a little bit of those conversations – nothing for sure, really – but I really think the most important deal right now for us is the NASCAR XFINITY Series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.”
