Joe Gibbs Racing announced on Tuesday that Daniel Suarez will drove the team's No. 20 Toyota entry in Friday night's NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway. The Nationwide race will be one of two races on Saturday for Suarez, as he'll also compete in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race at RIR immediately following the Nationwide Series race.

"I'm excited for the opportunity to make my NASCAR Nationwide Series debut," Suarez said. "I want to thank (sponsors) Telcel and Silent Circle for believing in me and making this a reality. I can't wait for Friday night in Richmond."

Suarez is a participant in NASCAR's Drive 4 Diversity program and currently races full-time in the K&N Pro Series East for Revolution Racing and in the NASCAR Toyota Series in Mexico. He currently holds the second spot in the K&N Pro Series East championship points standings after four races with wins at New Smyrna (Fla.) Speedway and Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. He's the points leader in the Toyota Series with wins in two of the first three races.

"Daniel is certainly someone that has proven to have a lot of talent, and we are thrilled this was able to come together and allow him to make his debut at Richmond," Joe Gibbs Racing President J.D. Gibbs said. "I think it's exciting when you look at the young talent our sport has right now, and we certainly feel that Daniel is going to be part of the future for NASCAR."
