No. 8 Poppy Bank Chevrolet Camaro
Daniel Hemric and the No. 8 team currently sit ninth in the playoff grid for the owners championship, one point behind the eighth and final cutoff position with two races remaining in the Round of 12.
In six combined starts across the NXS, NASCAR Cup Series and the Truck Series at Talladega, Hemric has recorded a best finish of fifth, earned in the April 2019 Cup event.
In seven combined NXS starts on the superspeedways of Daytona and Talladega, Hemric has scored a best finish of eighth in the July 2018 event at Daytona.
Through 17 NXS starts in 2020, Hemric has earned a season high finish of second at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
“I’m really looking forward to seeing what we can do this weekend at Talladega with our Poppy Bank Chevrolet. JRM has always unloaded with a lot of speed on the superspeedways and I felt like we had a really fast Camaro at Daytona a few weeks back. If we can just keep ourselves out of trouble and execute the way I know this team is capable of, I feel extremely confident that we can be up front and fighting for the victory on Saturday."
