“It was a tough day at Darlington. This place can catch you off guard at any moment, and that is exactly what happened. I thought we had a decent No. 11 Cirkul Chevrolet, we just needed a longer run to make some hay, and unfortunately we got damage before we really got to see the strength of our car. I'm proud of my team and proud of Kaulig Racing as a whole for getting a win with [Kyle] Larson. I'm ready to get back to work and get to Charlotte.” - Daniel
Daniel Hemric qualified 12th for the Shriners Children's 200 at Darlington Raceway.
Hemric fired off strong and raced in the top 10 for a majority of stage one. After short pitting the end of the stage, Hemric finished the opening stage in the ninth position.
In stage two, Hemric was collected in a wreck on lap 67 with multiple other cars. Hemric pitted multiple times to assess and fix the damage to get back on track. After clearing the Damaged Vehicle Policy (DVP) clock, he pitted once again for a few more adjustments to help the handling of the No. 11 Chevrolet. Hemric fought his way through the field, despite the damage, and finished stage two in the 20th position.
Continuing his charge through the field in the final stage, Hemric was able to maximize and make the most of its day, as Hemric rallied to a 16th-place finish.
