Daniel Suarez, in his first season with Stewart-Haas Racing says both he and the team have contract option for next season but making the playoffs are their top priority right now:
HOW IS YOUR SITUATION FOR NEXT YEAR?
"We have a lot of things going on right now with the Playoffs and there is more important stuff that we have to focus on. All I can tell you is that I’m very happy with where I’m at. They have told me many times that they are very happy with everything that I have done so far this year for the team, everything that I bring to the table, and I have mentioned before that I have an option, they have an option too, but everything is looking pretty good. Right now, they don’t to talk about it and I don’t want to talk about it. I have more important stuff to deal with, but I feel pretty good about it. I feel at home. Ford Performance, Stewart-Haas Racing, everybody has treated me extremely well and I really hope we can focus on the racing stuff and everything else will take care of itself."
