Daniel Hemric gets back behind the wheel of the No. 8 Poppy Bank Chevrolet for the 11th time in the 2020 NXS season this Saturday.
In two previous starts in the NXS at Kansas, Hemric has earned a best finish of second, coming in the 2018 running of this event after starting from the pole and leading 128 laps.
Hemric has also earned one pole, one top five and two top 10s in four combined starts between the Cup Series and the Truck Series at the 1.5-mile speedway.
Through 10 NXS starts in 2020, Hemric has earned a best finish of second at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May.
"I’ve always enjoyed racing at Kansas. It’s a place that I’ve always felt really comfortable at and we’ve had some strong runs here in the past. We had a lot of speed last time out in Kentucky and I feel extremely confident that Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) and all the guys on this No. 8 team will have that same kind of speed ready to go when we unload on Saturday. I’m ready to get after it and see what we can do with our Poppy Bank Chevrolet.”
