MEXICO CITY – Daniel Suárez won the Mexico 240 on Sunday in NASCAR Mexico Toyota Series action at Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez.  

The native of Monterrey, Mexico was able to hold off Abraham Calderón for his fourth win of the season and first since April 27 at his home track, Autódromo Monterrey. It was the NASCAR Next alum’s ninth series career win and third at the one-mile oval in the nation’s capital. His career win total is good for eighth on the series’ all-time list. Rogelio López, who finished 20th, tops the list with 22 Toyota Series wins.

Calderón finished second for his first top-five finish of the season followed by Rubén Rovelo in third. Jorge Goeters, the 2012 series champion, crossed the line in fourth, and like Calderón, scored his first top five of the campaign. López completed the top-five finishers in the 150-lap event.

Current NASCAR Next class member Rubén García Jr, Antonio Pérez, José Luis Ramírez, Enrique Contreras and Carlos Peralta rounded out the top 10.   

Suárez, who is in search of his first series title, brought a 14-point lead over Pérez at the start of the day and that advantage increased to 24 as the season nears the midway point. 

The series takes a few weeks off before traveling to the .875-mile concrete oval at Autódromo Internacional de Aguascalientes for a July 20 date.
