Around that time, he drove for the Joe Gibbs Racing team in the #19 car. From there, he moved to Stewart-Haas in the #41 car before jumping ship to Gaunt Brothers Racing. Now, he has parted ways with GBR and joined the fledgling outfit. Obviously, the team has very big ambitions and hopes that Suarez can bring them glory.

Pitbull is also a passionate NASCAR fan and will be doing his best to promote the team. The rapper is immensely popular in the United States, and many of his fans may start gaining an interest in NASCAR. It also helps that he will be present at this year’s season-opening Daytona 500.
