Trackhouse Entertainment Group has decided to start with an interesting project: Project 91! The goal is to include international racing drivers in the NASCAR Cup Series. “PROJECT91’s mission is to activate the intersection point of NASCAR racing and global motorsport culture,” said Justin Marks, as quoted ba nascar.
“I truly believe the Next Gen car represents an opportunity for NASCAR to enter the global professional motorsport conversation. We now have a race vehicle with international technological relevance where world-class drivers from other disciplines can compete at NASCAR’s highest level without the steep learning curve that the previous generation cars required.
“Vehicle advancements used in other forms of motorsports, such as diffusers, independent rear suspension, the sequential gearbox, and other more common components, have resulted in a platform much less reliant on intimate proprietary stock car knowledge, which has historically made any transition to NASCAR difficult.
“With the formation of PROJECT91, Trackhouse has opened the door for global champions while beginning the process of scaling into an internationally recognized racing brand”.
Daniel Suarez commented
Project91 aims to see big names in NASCAR, and Daniel Suarez commented on Project 91!
“I was talking to Justin about this, it’s going to be very exciting for me to have a front-row seat on this project because for the last 10 years I have felt that I came to the sport with a different background, with different education, without speaking English, trying to understand the sport, trying to understand the culture.
It’s been a process. It hasn’t been easy,” Daniel Suarez said, as quoted by firstsportz.
“Obviously thanks to a lot of people in the sport, they have made me feel at home, and they have made me make that progress easier.
Every single member that comes to this Project 91 most likely is going to go through the process that I had to go through in the last 10 years. I think it’s going to be very exciting for me to be on the front row of this project and try to help as much as I can,” Daniel Suarez added.
