The Track House Entertainment Group announced on Wednesday the formation of the Track House Racing Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series team that will make their debut at the 2020 Daytona 500 with Monterey, Mexico native Daniel Saurez driving the No.99 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE.
Speaking about the announcement, Justin Marks Owner and Founder of The Track House Entertainment Group commented saying:
The formation of a top-level NASCAR Cup Series team has been a dream of mine for a long time. “A lot of hard work has transpired to get us to this point and I don’t think we could’ve ended up with better partners in RCR and Chevrolet, and with a more passionate and committed driver than Daniel Suárez. Daniel’s drive and hunger to get to the top of this sport is palpable every time I am in his presence. We are building a team of winners and Daniel has delivered just about every time he’s sat in race winning equipment. It’s my job now to put a car underneath him that will carry him to the highest echelon of the sport.
Saurez, who won the 2016 NASCAR Xfinity Series championship commented on the announcement saying:
“I see in Trackhouse a great opportunity for me with a very strong group of people that share the same vision, commitment and goals that I have,” “Justin has been involved in the racing world for over 20 years and understands the ins and outs of the sport both as a driver and from the business side. I have learned a lot in the last few years and have been very fortunate to be a part of very good organizations. I have learned that this sport is about people, and I know we are going to work very hard to put together a talented team. Furthermore, getting the support from a strong manufacturer like Chevrolet will be a key to our success. My goal is simple, I want to win races.”
Marks concluded saying:
“I believe deeply in the direction NASCAR’s executive group is taking the sport. “There is a disruptive and courageous vision for the future taking place that is displayed by the incredible 2021 racing schedule and new ways of looking at a sustainable economic model culminating in the debut of the 2022 Next Gen car that, in my opinion, will lay the groundwork for a dramatic value proposition for future owners, media partners, stakeholders, and sponsors for decades to come. Everything Trackhouse will be doing in 2021 from a business development standpoint will be in the context of positioning ourselves to win races and championships as NASCAR embarks on a new chapter in 2022 and beyond.”
