“It was a challenging weekend for us, our eighth place finish won’t really tell the whole story. I had made a mistake in qualifying by asking too much of it [the car]. It was good to get a top five in stage two and even battle for the lead for a little bit and get a couple stage points there in stage two. In the last green flag run, under the green flag pit stop I was just too free and lost some time in the final stage. I went to try to get second there in the last restart and got shoved around a little bit and landed an eighth-place finish. I'm proud of this race team and the speed we have in our Kaulig Racing Chevrolets." - Daniel
Daniel Hemric qualified 33rd for the Tennessee Lottery 250.
Although Hemric struggled with rear grip in his No.11 Cirkul Chevy, he made steady gains in the caution-filled opening stage and was able to gain 16 spots to finish 17th in stage one.
The No.11 team executed solid pit stops throughout the stage that helped Hemric maintain track position. Hemric fought his way into the top 10 and stayed near the front. He went on to finish the second stage in 3rd place, earning stage points.
In the final stage, Hemric charged toward the front of the field and took the lead on lap 111. After battling for the lead with his teammate, Hemric continued to say in the top five a majority of the final stage. Hemric restarted as the second car on the outside lane on the double overtime start and got shuffled back in the field, finishing the race eighth.
