This is the moment Trackhouse Racing fans have been waiting for ever since Daniel Suárez took the checkered flag at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway on June 12 and secured a berth in the 2022 NASCAR Playoffs.

The playoffs begin Sunday at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway in the first of three Round of 16 races. After the third race, four of the 16 drivers will be eliminated from the playoffs.

The 30-year-old Monterrey, Mexico driver knows to advance to the Round of 12 he must avoid all trouble on the always treacherous 1.3-mile oval in Darlington known as the "Lady in Black."

Suárez joins teammate Ross Chastain as rookies in the playoff field as the Trackhouse Racing team placed both cars despite this marking their first year as a multicar team.

The Trackhouse duo has combined for three wins, 16 top-fives, 24 top-10s and led 821 laps in the 2022 season.

Suárez, who will pilot the No. 99 Chevrolet Camaro carrying Jockey livery for the second time in 2022, begins the 2022 playoffs in 13th place with 2,007 points just two points behind the transfer position. Over the next three races, he'll have plenty of opportunities to move up in the standings.

The USA Network will televise Sunday's race in Darlington at 6 p.m. EDT.

Daniel Suárez, Driver of the No. 99 Jockey Chevrolet

After waiting since June, are you ready for the playoffs?

"I am. Let's hammer down."

What is your strategy?

"I don't know if you have a strategy other than to do the same things you have been doing all year that got you to this place. You have to drive smart, learn as much as you can and make no mistakes."

Are you entering the playoffs with momentum?

"Things were looking good Sunday before before the rain on the track in Daytona ended our race. We ran pretty good at Watkins Glen. My team has been improving all year so we feel very confident."
