Daniel Suarez will be entering his eighth full-time season of NASCAR Cup Series competition in 2024. Travis Mack, who has been his crew chief at Trackhouse Racing since the beginning of the 2021 season, will now move over to Kaulig Racing as the technical director of its Cup operations and the crew chief for the No. 16 Chevrolet Camaro.
Matt Swiderski, the competition director at Kaulig and the crew chief for the No. 16, will swap places with Mack and join Suarez as the crew chief of the No. 99 machine. Swiderski previously worked with Richard Childress Racing and Team Penske as a crew chief in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Trackhouse co-founder Justin Marks expressed confidence in Swiderski’s abilities and believes he will pair well with Suarez.
The 2023 season was challenging for Suarez as he failed to win any races and missed the playoffs, finishing 19th in the championship standings. However, in the previous year, he secured his first Cup victory at Sonoma Raceway and finished tenth in the final standings. Swiderski is excited about the opportunity to work with Suarez and aims to achieve the same goal of winning. They will focus on perfecting their strategies to secure more wins and compete for a championship.
