Daniel Hemric will make his third NXS start at Road America on Saturday afternoon.
In two previous starts at the 4.048-mile road course, Hemric has scored a best finish of third, coming in this event in 2018.
Overall, in seven previous starts on road courses in the NXS, Hemric has earned three top fives, four top 10s and a best finish of second in the 2017 event at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
Through 11 NXS starts in 2020, Hemric has earned a best finish of second at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May.
“I’ve really enjoyed racing on road courses. We’ve had some solid runs on these kinds of tracks in the past, in all three series, which gives me a lot of confidence heading into this weekend. The last time I was at Road America we were able to come away with a top-three finish and hopefully we can replicate that success on Saturday with our Poppy Bank Chevrolet. JRM has always had fast cars on the road courses and I can’t wait to see what we can do come race time.”
