Matt Swiderski will call the shots for Daniel Suarez and the No. 99 Trackhouse Racing team in the NASCAR Cup Series this season.

“Matt is a proven winner with a dynamic engineering background, and we are confident he will pair well with Daniel,” team founder Just in Marks said.

Suarez comes off a 2023 season in which he failed to earn a postseason berth and went winless. He finished 19th in the championship standings with 10 top-10 finishes.

Swiderski joins the organization from Kaulig Racing, where he was the crew chief for AJ Allmendinger and the No. 16 team. Among the highlights from the 2023 season for the team was Swiderski and Allmendinger winning on the Charlotte Roval. Swiderski has two wins as a Cup Series crew chief, having also been victorious with Allmendinger on the Indianapolis road course in 2021.

“Everyone sees what Trackhouse Racing is building and I am thankful for the opportunity to come to a winning organization and lead the No. 99 team,” said Swiderski. “I am looking forward to working with Daniel. We are both striving to achieve the same thing – winning. Every day we are going to work on perfecting the next steps that it takes to get more wins and compete for a championship.”

Trackhouse Racing and Kaulig Racing have essentially swapped crew chiefs for the Nos. 99 and 16 teams. Travis Mack, who was previously Suarez’s crew chief, has moved to Kaulig Racing to oversee the No. 16 team, which will work with multiple drivers this season, including Allmendinger.
