Daniel Suarez gives take on Stage 2 finish in Monster Energy Open

Daniel Suarez used social media to chime in on the Stage 2 ending of the Monster Energy Open that saw Richard Petty Motorsports’ Bubba Wallace speed to victory while the Stewart-Haas Racing driver’s No. 41 Ford was sent spinning through the infield.

“The truth is that only drivers will know how and why that happened,” Suarez said, in part. His full reaction is below.

Wallace and Suarez raced side-by-side for the final couple laps in Saturday’s second stage, with a transfer spot into the Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race on the line. Wallace nosed ahead on the backstretch, then appeared to slide down the track to stall a major run that Suarez had built up to beat him to the start/finish line.

“I almost gave it back to (Suarez) coming off (Turn 4), so it was just good racing there,” Wallace told FS1. “You know Daniel and I are really close, so I hope there are no hard feelings. We know what is on the line and I would have expected the same thing.”
