#5 Daniel Suarez
The sophomore slump is a real thing and its what’s been affecting Daniel Suarez throughout the entire season. What’s interesting about Suarez situation is that he is currently the only driver at JGR outside of the top 16 and has only half of the top-ten finishes that he achieved last year. With that being said and only three races to go, Suarez and his team are now in panic mode.
Unfortunately for Suarez, he currently sits 82 points out of 16th place with only three races to go in the playoffs. Furthermore, the three tracks he has left to win at are Bristol, Darlington and Indianapolis are all places he has had problems at. which means he has a lot of work to do if he wants to squeak into the playoffs on points.
