AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Thanks to Daniel Suarez, fans can get a cheap ticket to Sunday's NASCAR race.

Phoenix Raceway is celebrating Suarez's first NASCAR Cup appearance on the track with a $19 ticket. The race is on March 19 and Suarez will drive the No. 19 ARRIZ Toyota Camry.

Suarez won the 2016 NASCAR Xfinity championship, becoming the first Latin American to win a major NASCAR title.

Celebrating Suarez is a good way for the raceway to entice Mexican fans to see NASCAR racing in person with the relative proximity to the U.S.-Mexican border and the large Mexican-American population in the Phoenix area.

The Mexican national soccer team regularly sells out appearances at nearby University of Phoenix Stadium.
