While making money is also important, one of the great joys of owning a team is to experience the joy of winning. In NASCAR, we often see team owners participating in moments of celebration after the checkered flag has dropped.
Pitbulls are losing fun this year at Trackhouse Racing, where Ross Chastain won twice, and then Daniel Suarez won in Sonoma heading into the scheduled Cup Series vacation week.
On Tuesday, the team tweeted footage from its celebration of Suarez’s win, in which Pitbull threw a taco piñata straight at Suarez. The results are outstanding.
A abala Pitbull missed the festivities
Year 2 of Trackhouse Racing in the NASCAR Cup Series has been a huge success on any scale. Ross Chastain scored victories at the Circuit of the Americas in March and Talladega in April. Last week, Suarez won the Sonoma road course.
The drivers were creative in their celebration. Chastain smashed watermelons on the track after each of his wins, and Suarez followed it up by opening a taco-style piñata.
Following each, Justin Marks offered the winning owner’s comment to the media after taking part in the celebrations. That’s because acclaimed rapper Pitbull (real name: Armando Perez), Marks ’partner at Trackhouse, keeps promises related to his career and other business interests.
“When Armando said,‘ I’m going to be at every race ’, that was an expression of passion, not scheduling, right?” Marks told Talladega, according to CBS Sports. “Look, I mean , it’s Pitbull, right? He’s touring, recording songs. “
Well, Pitbull finally caught up with his team at their store and made up for lost time with Suarez.
Pitbull serves up a piñata with Daniel Suarez
When Sonoma won, NASCAR Cup Series driver Daniel Suarez opened a small taco piñata by throwing it on the ground, which isn’t like we’re used to seeing it done.
Sometime since Suarez’s win, Trackhouse co-owner Pitbull has stopped by the store to make it more conventional. Piñata, meet bat. Pitbull served the piñata, and Suarez took a strong swing. The result was candy and money scattered all over the shop floor as the whole team watched.
As they often say, a fun time was had by everyone.
However, it is back in business this weekend as the Cup Series begins the second half of its season in Nashville.
