No. 8 Poppy Bank John Andretti Tribute Chevrolet Camaro
Daniel Hemric earned a sixth-place finish earlier this year at the track “Too Tough To Tame.”
Overall, Hemric has made a combined four starts at Darlington between the NASCAR Cup Series and the NXS, with the sixth-place finish in May being his best.
This weekend in Darlington, Hemric and the No. 8 team will be paying tribute to the life and legacy of John Andretti and the #CheckIt4Andretti campaign. This scheme replicates the one Andretti drove during the 1995-96 Cup seasons.
Through 15 NXS starts in 2020, Hemric has earned a best finish of second at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May.
“I’m so happy that we are heading back to Darlington this weekend and are getting the chance to finally race this awesome John Andretti Tribute scheme. I can’t thank Poppy Bank enough for letting us run these colors and hopefully we can have a really great day for John and the entire Andretti family. Getting to meet and talk with Nancy and learning more about the #CheckIt4Andretti campaign has really made this a special weekend for me. Hopefully we can back up the speed we had here in May and be up front and in contention for the win on Saturday. I can’t wait.”
