NASCAR driver Daniel Suárez heroically saved a turtle struggling to cross the street

NASCAR driver Daniel Suárez slowed down for a second and did a nice thing this weekend. He saw someone in a precarious position who needed a little help, and he stepped up.

Before the NASCAR Cup Series’ AdventHealth 400 at Kansas Speedway on Sunday, Suárez was somewhere in Kansas City, according to his geotags, when he came across a sizable turtle crossing the road. Of course, the little guy wasn’t moving too fast through the intersection, and while slow and steady is often a solid strategy, it’s perhaps not the best when faced with oncoming traffic (although, luckily, there didn’t seem to be too much).

So Suárez did what any animal lover would do: He helped the turtle cross the street and get to safety. It took some strategy, but he and those with him made it work.

What a journey!

It was clearly a team effort for Suárez and those nearby, but totally worth it to make sure this turtle was out of harm’s way. What a sweet moment from the No. 99 Trackhouse Racing Chevrolet driver, who ended up finishing 33rd in Sunday’s race.
