Hemric Earns a 12th-place finish at Bristol

Updated: Sep 4, 2019

No. 8 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

Started: 17th

Finished: 12th

Points: 25th

From Daniel Hemric:

"We worked hard during practice on Friday and made a few changes to the initial setup of our Bass Pro Shops/Tracker Boats Chevrolet that Luke Lambert and the guys had success with in the past at Bristol Motor Speedway. I feel like that effort on Friday really helped us on Saturday during the race when the top of the racetrack came in, especially in Turns 3 and 4. At the start of the race, we rolled by a couple of cars and thought we'd be okay but as soon as we got in clean air our Bass Pro Shops/Tracker Boats Chevrolet was way too loose, which made it hard to make speed on the bottom. We worked all night to get our Chevy tightened up and the handling would come to me if we could get a heat cycle on the tires. The race pace was so fast that it was a challenge to stay on the lead lap, but we had some things fall our way from time to time to get the free pass. If I had another corner or two, I think I could have passed the No. 6 car for 11th, but I'm just proud of everyone on the Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet team for never giving up and bringing home the finish that we did."
