No. 8 Poppy Bank Chevrolet Camaro
Daniel Hemric will be piloting the No. 8 Poppy Bank Chevrolet for the second of two NXS events at Kentucky on Friday evening.
In three previous NXS starts at Kentucky, Hemric has one top five and three top 10s with a best finish of second coming in 2018.
Hemric has made a combined six starts at the 1.5-mile oval between the NASCAR Cup Series, NXS and the Truck Series, recording a combined two top fives and four top 10s.
Due to the driver change from Thursday night (Jeb Burton) to Friday night, the No. 8 team will start at the rear of the field.
“I’ve always enjoyed racing at Kentucky. We’ve had some strong runs there in the past and I’m confident we can do that again on Friday night. Hopefully Jeb (Burton) will have a great run on Thursday and we can learn a few things that can translate over to Friday night. I’m ready to get back behind the wheel and I feel like we will have a great shot to battle upfront and race for a win.”
