Tony Stewart says contract deal with Daniel Suarez “getting closer”

Stewart-Haas Racing co-owner Tony Stewart says that the organization is getting closer to bringing Daniel Suarez back to its No. 41 Ford next season, though a deal has not been made final.

“You know, it’s just a matter of trying to get this deal done and see if we can put it all together,” Stewart said Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway, one day after his induction into the Texas Motorsports Hall of Fame. “He’s worked really hard; we’re working hard at it. I think we’re getting closer, but it’s not done yet obviously.”

Suarez is rounding out his first season with SHR, and he ranks 18th in Monster Energy Series points after missing the playoff cut. Friday, Suarez expressed some frustration with the timing of the negotiations, but said he held hopes that a deal could be completed.
