Hemric 18th in rain shortened Daytona
No. 8 Cessna Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
From Daniel Hemric:
"What a weekend down here in Daytona. We have to thank all of the amazing race fans who stuck it out with all of the weather we've had here this weekend. Our No. 8 Cessna Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was fast throughout the weekend and we had a solid plan to work with our fellow Chevrolet drivers once the race started and that seemed to work out when the green flag flew. We were just biding our time but then made contact with another car exiting pit road, which caused some damage to the right front of the car. The guys were able to fix that damage, but then we got even more damage when the No. 41 came down the track and hit us in the right side. We had significant damage from that and fell two laps down, but these guys never gave up and we kept fighting. We were able to get one lap back because of the wave around, then got the free pass to get back on the lead lap. Unfortunately, the weather came and we never got the chance to go up there and mix it up for the race win. I hate it for all of the guys on this Cessna Chevrolet, the fans here at the track and watching at home, but that's part of racing. We'll regroup and head to Kentucky and look to continue our momentum there."
