Hemric 18th on roller-coaster day in Kansas
No. 8 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
"On the initial run to start the race we were too tight on the short run and way too tight in traffic. Every run after that Luke Lambert and all the guys on this crew got this No. 8 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet better and better. I thought we were making gains and just got caught with that caution in the middle of green flag pit stops. We had pitted early to try and get track position but that caution came out and trapped us two laps down. We took the wave around, got one of those laps back and from that point on we just tried to race those cars on our lap and get as many positions as possible. We would have liked to have finished better than 18th, but I am proud that these guys never gave up and we got the Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet better and better each run. I'm looking forward to getting back home to Charlotte for the next two weeks. Hopefully, we can race our way into the All-Star Race through the Open, but if not I hope all the fans out there show their support for this No. 8 team in the fan vote."
