Ross Chastain has been the talk of the year competing in all three NASCAR National Series driving the No.1 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for Trackhouse Racing as a full-time driver in the NASCAR Cup Series while he drives the No.92 Chevrolet Camaro for DGM Racing part-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and the No.41 Chevrolet Silverado for Niece Motorsports in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and is clearly outshining everyone in these three series.
Ross Chastain is currently one of the most successful drivers this season at Trackhouse Racing with being one of the very few drivers with two wins this season, one coming in the Echopark Automotive Grand Prix at Circuit of The Americas and the second in the GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway including nine top 5s, the highest for any driver this season and three top 10s with a P4 in the Kwik Trip 250 at Road America proving his sheer skill with the Next-Gen Car on road courses.
Trackhouse Racing recruited Chastain last year to race alongside Daniel Suarez in his No.99 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 with Justin Marks and American rapper Pitbull at the helm and both these drivers have not disappointed their owners this season after achieving a combined number of three wins with Suarez winning the Toyota Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway before the off-weekend thus declaring the team’s dominance on road courses and either of these two was speculated to win but they finished in the top 5 with Chastain at P4 and Suarez at P5.
“Proud of my team and my pit crew today,” Daniel Suarez delighted with Trackhouse’s performance at Road America
Ross Chastain was initially one among those expected to take Trackhouse to win at Road America and he said that he is extremely happy with two of his team’s cars finishing in the top 5 and also added that he and teammate Daniel Suarez exchanged words talking about where they could’ve done better and said that there’s no need to feel abashed at all and also added that they had a quick car but had no grip behind but in the end, they managed to keep up and run in the top 4 for most of the race.
“Trackhouse still had two in the top-five. Daniel and I were just talking and there were little bits and pieces we were off today and we still had top-five speed, absolutely nothing to be ashamed about. Our car was fast enough, we were just lacking mainly rear grip on throttle and in the rights turns especially. Got really slick there at the end and those guys didn’t slow down in the end as much as we did. A fourth-place car was where we ran most of the day,” said Ross Chastain.
Chastain’s Trackhouse teammate Daniel Suarez also finished at P5 at the third road course of the season and was really impressed with how his car ran and he feels that he has juiced all that he can out of his car and was really satisfied and grateful for his team’s efforts to make it possible and he concluded by saying that he was aware that he had a car capable of competing in the top 7 and he ended up finishing fifth and he said that they still have a lot to work on for the coming races.
“I thought it was fine. For the car that we had, I thought that we maximized everything that we got. Proud of my team and my pit crew today, everyone did a great job. I felt like we had a top-seven car and we finished in the top-five, so I felt like we did a good job with that. With that being said, it’s not a win. We have to continue to work and continue to get better,” concluded Daniel Suarez.
With three of this season’s six road courses coming to an end, will either of the two Trackhouse stars emerge victorious in any one of the three left?
