Daniel Suárez: “It’s very hard to put into words,” Suarez said. “I’m speechless right now. I’m just very proud of everyone and thankful to have the family that I have, my mom, my dad. They gave me all the tools to be here right now. They put me in a car even when we didn’t have the support or the racing background. They supported me, and right now we are just living a dream.”

Joe Gibbs: “For us, after two years, to be where we are tonight is amazing,” car owner Joe Gibbs said. “This is going to be a big deal for our sport. It’s huge.”

Cheers to you, Daniel!

Race Preview: A Weekend with ‘The Lady in Black’

Carl Edwards and Daniel Suárez are in Darlington, South Carolina for this season’s only stop originalat the legendary 1.33-mile egg-shaped oval. Dubbed ‘The Lady in Black,’ Darlington Raceway has been a destination for success for ARRIS Racing, with Daniel finishing third in his rookie debut last year, and Carl returning this week to defend his victory at last year’s Sprint Cup Series race.

Daniel starts things off on Saturday in the XFINITY Series VFW Sport Clips Help A Hero 200. Carl will race on Sunday in the Sprint Cup Series Bojangles’ Southern 500. Both will be behind the wheel of the #19 ARRIS Toyota Camry, but Carl’s car will wear a historic throwback paint scheme as an homage to former JGR teammate Tony Stewart. Check out this link for a 360 view of the car.

Here’s a preview of this weekend’s ARRIS Racing lineup:

  • Carl Edwards in the #19 ARRIS Toyota Camry
  • Live TV coverage: Sunday, September 4th at 6:00 p.m. Eastern on NBC, Sirius XM Channel 90, and MRN Radio

Carl Edwards: ”Darlington is one of the most fun races of the year. It’s a historic event and with the throwback paint schemes and everything, I’m really looking forward to this weekend. It’s going to be a blast. We won the race last year. It was one of the biggest wins of my career. Our Joe Gibbs Racing Toyotas have been really fast. We’ve been working well together as a team. We’ve got a special paint scheme to honor Tony Stewart’s first paint scheme that he had at JGR. Here it is his last season so that’ll be cool. We’ve got ARRIS on board. The Stanzione family has done so much for our team through ARRIS. They’re from that area so hopefully we can get them another win. We’ll just go have a good time. We’ve got two races before the Chase to get a couple more bonus points and hopefully a couple trophies.”

Daniel Suárez: “Darlington is one of my favorite race tracks we visit each year and also one of the most fun and challenging to drive. The track is so different from any that we visit; it really makes it exciting for us as drivers as well as the fans. The whole weekend is really cool and I’m excited to be part of it. We had a really strong run there last year in our ARRIS Camry, so hopefully we can duplicate that effort this year. We’ve had a really good year so far, and as the regular season comes to a close I’m really looking forward to the Chase coming up in a few weeks.”

Bring home another one, Carl and Daniel!

On Sunday, Carl Edwards will take the wheel of his #19 ARRIS Toyota Camry—wearing its new SURFboard® wrap featuring NewEgg—for 200 laps of Michigan International’s 2-mile speedway. He’ll be looking for a victory to add to his nine top-5 finishes and two wins at the track.

Here’s a preview of this weekend’s ARRIS Racing lineup:

NASCAR XFINITY Series – Road America Road Course

  • Live TV coverage: Saturday, August 27th at 3:00 p.m. Eastern on NBCSN, Sirius XM Channel 90, and MRN Radio

  • Carl Edwards in the #19 ARRIS Toyota Camry
  • Live TV coverage: Sunday, August 28th at 2:00 p.m. Eastern on NBCSN, Sirius XM Channel 90, and MRN Radio

Carl Edwards: ”I am really looking forward to the Michigan race.  The lower down force package should provide some great racing there, especially the second time around, there’s a little more rubber on the track, and possibly some higher temperatures to widen out the groove.  We’ve been having a lot of fun. We’ve been fast, been qualifying well and racing well.  Michigan is a place that really tests every part of your team. You have to have great engines, which we do from TRD. You have to have great cars and bodies, which we do. The pit crew has to be on their game. My guys have been doing great lately. You have to make good calls the whole day.  Dave Rogers and I will go there and just keep doing what we’ve been doing and hopefully we get ARRIS a win.  I have a couple wins in the cup car and Xfinity series.  It’s always been a really cool place to go.  There is a lot of pride on the line in Michigan because it’s the domestic manufacturers’ backyard.  If you can win there, you know you’ve done a good job. I would be really proud to put Toyota in victory lane.”

Daniel Suárez: “We’ve had a tough couple of races the past two weeks, so I’m really looking forward to getting back on the track this weekend and behind the wheel of my ARRIS Camry. Road America is one of the best tracks not only in NASCAR, but in the country, so I’m really excited and looking forward to the weekend.  We’ve had some really good meetings this week and I think Scott and the team have a great game plan as we moved forward. We will work hard on Friday to find the right set up not only for the race on Saturday, but also qualifying on Friday evening as track position will be really important.”

Good luck, Carl and Daniel!

Race Preview: Tackling the “Tricky Triangle”

We’re at Pocono Raceway this weekend in Pennsylvania for two days of spirited racing around 20160603_141817_resizedthe famously tight corners of the 2.5-mile tri-oval.

  • Live TV coverage: Sunday, June 4th at 1:00 p.m. Eastern on FOX Sports 1, Sirius XM Channel 90, and MRN Radio

Carl Edwards: “Pocono is obviously a unique racetrack.  It’s unlike any other track we go to.  It’s a real tough track to get right. I’ve had some success there with a couple wins.  I enjoy racing there.  It’s as close to a road course as an oval can get.  It has three distinct corners, has a long straightaways and every part of the team comes into play.  You got to have a great engine, you got to have a really good setup and you got to be able to adjust.  You have to drive well and restarts are important.  When you do well there it means something, because you have to do everything right.  Hopefully we can go there and get our third win of the season.  We have ARRIS on board and we would like to get them to victory lane.  After last week we had a strong run and I had some speeding penalties, so I need to keep the racing on the race track.”

Daniel Suarez: ”I’m looking forward to the weekend and making my first start at Pocono in the ARRIS Camry. I’ve done some work in the Toyota Simulator the last few weeks to learn as much as possible, and Scott (Graves) and I have had some good meetings and I think we have a good game plan going into the weekend. Toyota Racing has been on a hot streak as of late, and I would like nothing more than to get my first win and continue their winning streak this weekend at Pocono.”
