star back home. On a return trip to Mexico with NASCAR officials last month, Suarez was celebrated as if he was Dale Earnhardt J Antworten

HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- El campeon!Daniel Suarez won the Xfinity Series season finale and title at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Saturday, becoming the first foreign champion in a NASCAR national series.The 24-year-old Mexican bested fellow championship contenders Elliott Sadler, Justin Allgaier and Erik Jones on a botched restart with three laps to go.Its very hard to put into words, Suarez said. Im speechless right now. Im just very proud of everyone and thankful to have the family that I have, my mom, my dad. They gave me all the tools to be here right now. They put me in a car even when we didnt have the support or the racing background. They supported me, and right now we are just living a dream.Suarez thanked fans and his native country in Spanish in victory lane. His win was the first of the weekend for Joe Gibbs Racing, which has two drivers -- Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards -- vying for the Sprint Cup championship Sunday.For us, after two years, to be where we are tonight is amazing, car owner Joe Gibbs said. This is going to be a big deal for our sport. Its huge.It was just Suarezs third career victory, but the most important for obvious reasons.Claiming the title at Homestead-Miami Speedway made the accomplishment all the more memorable for Suarez.To win here in Homestead and to have a lot of fans and people from Latin America, Mexicans, [people from] all over Latin America, its something great for me, Suarez said. And on the side of that, I have my mom, my dad, my family from Houston, my friends from Mexico [and] my friend Coco over there that I used to race cars with him when I was 13 years old. A lot of friends were here.More than 30 people were here just to have fun with me, to enjoy this weekend, and what a better way to finish [than] this way. Im just very proud of my team, very proud of everyone that has been helping me to be in this position, and its still hard to believe this. Its still hard to believe this. But we worked hard, and this team really deserves these results.?Sadler, who gambled by taking two tires on the final pit stop, finished third in the race and second in the standings. The former Cup driver and sentimental favorite remained without a championship at any national level in a career spanning more than two decades.This is by far the hardest because I feel like this is the best team Ive probably ever worked with, said Sadler, who drove with an interim crew chief because his usual one was suspended. We felt like we could come in here and compete, and we made a great pit call there at the end to get some clean air.Sadler asked Cole Whitt to give him the top lane on the restart, but?Whitt?declined.Allgaier finished sixth and Jones ninth. Both got stuck behind Whitt, the leader,?on the final restart, and when Whitt spun his worn-out tires, Allgaier and Jones fell way behind Suarez.Its really frustrating, Jones said. I dont mean to bag on the guy so much, but its like, Hey, were up here racing for the championship. And maybe we dont even win it if he pits and lets us move up, but at least we would have had a fair shot at it. I feel like we kind of got robbed of at least our chance to race for it. Yeah, its just unfortunate. It just wasnt a great situation altogether.The chaos definitely benefited Suarez, who passed Sadler low and pulled away from the field. Suarez led 133 of the 200 laps in the race.Suarez was last years top rookie in the second-tier series. He began racing karts in Mexico and moved to North Carolina as a teenager to pursue a career at NASCARs national level. He had to teach himself English by watching cartoons on American television, and Suarez moved through NASCARs Drive for Diversity program to land a job with JGR.Suarez is the first D4D driver to win a championship.Suarez has soared in his second season with Gibbs. As Jones struggled down the stretch, Suarez upped his performance. He won at Dover to move through the Round of 12 and was runner-up at Kentucky and third at Charlotte. Then, Suarez registered finishes of third (Kansas), fifth (Texas) and fifth (Phoenix) to set up his championship-clinching victory at Homestead while working with crew chief Scott Graves.I feel like Scott and I, we have come a long ways, Suarez said. In the first half of the year, we were good, and in the second half of the year, we were great. Thats something really good.Im really looking forward for our future, but for now, I think Im just very proud of the performance that Scott and the guys and Joe Gibbs Racing, they brought to this race. They brought my favorite car, and thats the car that I won Michigan with. Thats just my baby, and weve got it here, and we won a championship.?The championship surely make him an even bigger star back home. On a return trip to Mexico with NASCAR officials last month, Suarez was celebrated as if he was Dale Earnhardt Jr.After Suarez won in Homestead, Earnhardt Jr. congratulated the new champion via Twitter.For Gibbs, it is his second driver championship in the Xfinity Series but first since Busch won in 2009.The Gibbs organization also celebrated its fifth owners championship in the Xfinity Series.The Associated Press contributed to this report. Paul Molitor Jersey . Houston won 3-0 to advance to face New York in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Last in the game, Di Vaio and Romero got into a shoving match with several Houston players. Romero appeared to elbow and kick Houston defender Kofi Sarkodie. Ervin Santana Jersey . The International Olympic Committee released the official list of bid cities on Friday after the deadline for applications had passed. The candidates -- all previously announced in their own countries -- are: Almaty, Kazakhstan; Beijing; Krakow, Poland; Lviv, Ukraine; Oslo, Norway; and Stockholm. . John Tavares, Thomas Vanek and Kyle Okposo were also being counted on to slow down sizzling Rangers forward Rick Nash. That plan didnt go so well early. Phil Hughes Jersey . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. Jake Odorizzi Jersey . Sgt. Eric ONeal says most of the arrests at Monday nights game were for public drunkenness, though one person was taken into custody on suspicion of trying to steal a seat from the stadium. PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks are parting with senior vice president of baseball operations De Jon Watson, and chief baseball officer Tony La Russa said he and general manager Dave Stewart may also be fired after the season.La Russa announced Watsons departure after a 10-9 win over the Dodgers on Sunday.La Russa said he will eventually meet with owner Ken Kendrick and president/CEO Derrick Hall about his status.If it gets turned over the next person, you gladly turn it over, La Russa said. When were 20 games under .500, I felt if youre looking at the front office, the most responsible person, it would be me.Arizona made an aggressive push to compete in the offseason by giving Zack Greinke a $206.5 million, six-year free-agent contract and trading a bevy of young players to the Atlanta Braves for right-hander Shelby Miller. Greinke is having his worst season inn years, and Miller pitched poorly enough to get a midseason demotion to Triple-A, part of why the Diamondbacks are just a game out of last place in the National League West at 63-86.dddddddddddd.When you have this kind of year, Ive never had a problem taking responsibility, and evidently, stuff that Ive been taught hasnt contributed enough, La Russa said. Well wait and see how the decision comes. Im ready to go forward if theyve seen enough.Watson was in his second season with the club and oversaw the franchises player development and professional, amateur and international scouting departments.La Russa said the team decided not to renew Watsons contract and let him walk before the end of the season so he can pursue other opportunities.
