Grammy Award winning global superstar Pitbull has become a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series team co-owner along with Justin Marks forming Trackhouse Racing and will make their eagerly anticipated debut at the Daytona 500 on February 14.

The team will field Daniel Suarez in the No.99 Chevrolet Camaro and speaking about the news, Armando Christian Perez(Pitbull) stated:

I’ve been a fan of the NASCAR story since the movie ‘Days of Thunder“As soon as I met Justin, Ty Norris (team president)and Daniel, we were on the same page. They welcomed me aboard, and now we’re going to show the world NASCAR is not only a sport but it’s a culture.  This is an amazing way to celebrate my 40th birthday, so Get Ready! Dale! (Dah-lay)”

Perez has already asserted himself as an engine for evolution.  Not only will he serve as an active partner on the Trackhouse executive team, Perez serves as a brand and philanthropic ambassador.  Together, Marks and Perez will foster the launch of a racing-themed STEM curriculum within the SLAM! (Sports Leadership Arts and Management) inner-city charter schools — which Pitbull helped establish seven years ago.

Team co-owner Justin Marks commented saying:

From day one of creating Trackhouse Racing, I wanted our team to be a platform for purpose, to transcend the sport and positively impact all races on and off the track,” said Marks.

“I am proud that in just a few months we are here announcing a partnership with one of the most influential and recognized artists in the world.  Within the first 10 minutes of our first meeting, it was clear Armando and I share a vision and passion for impacting the lives of the underrepresented. We are creating and compelling a movement of positivity and possibility, using the platform and excitement of sports and music.  Through NASCAR and our partnership with Pitbull, we are going to have the attention of a global demographic that is ready to be inspired into action for themselves, their families and their future.
